A trip to UNO: Aware of the fact of opportunities in speaking at the UN

Ms. Swarna nursed a wish to someday speak at the UN. The day dawned on March 8, 2013. Through Children’s Parliament, Swarna was invited by the International Presentation Association of New York to participate in the meetings and other side events related to the 57th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, at the United Nations Headquarters, New York. The main theme during this meeting was on “Elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls.” Swarna spoke on child marriages in India and how few cases were tackled by her through the NCP.
