Jordanian Student Wants More Youth Involvement in UN

A winner of a UN-backed multilingual essay competition wants more young people to be involved in the global organization's work.
Sara Arafeh from Jordan was one of 70 university students from 42 countries who were at the UN this month to celebrate their achievement in winning the Many Languages, One World contest.
Participants had to write in one of the six official languages of the UN—Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian or Spanish—that was not their mother tongue or the principal language of instruction in their primary or secondary education.
Sara, 21, is studying Biology and Chemistry in the United States. She talks to Dianne Penn about her award-winning essay and her dream of working for the UN.
