Liz DiGiorgio, Art professor, City University of New York and Director of Youth Rep Program at UN has been proactively working with the CUNY administration to establish our Youth Rep program, with accepted students receiving credits toward graduation. Kathleen Wentrack, a feminist art historian, TFAP coordinator in New York City, and faculty at CUNY, is working with Liz and Maureen Burns-Bowie, our UN Program Director, to monitor and mentor the students. We welcome our new Youth Reps Miranda Barnes and Soha Farooqui , both art students at CUNY and both of whom have already started attending events at the UN. We established a requirement that interested students write application letters expressing why they wanted to be UN Youth Reps. Both responded with empathy, a deep commitment to helping others, a high level of awareness of current events, and a belief that art is a great communicator. They are well worth reading and can be accessed below.
