To quote one of the Gates Institute’s annual letters, “young people are the hope and future of nations”- my wish as Chair of Press Commission is to talk openly about the challenges we face today and to give my peers the confidence they need to participate in discussions on urgent global issues. I will use this privilege to make our community better, stronger and more vocal and encourage my peers to truly become citizens of the world.” Said Ms. Gabriela Motroc, IYF Chair of Press Commission.
