Today, we're excited to spotlight one of the many awesome delegates that are attending this year's Millennium Campus Conference.
Wellington is from the African Methodist Episcopal University in Liberia. He's the General Secretary in his university's Student Union, proving that he has great leadership skills and enjoys working with other students around him. Among the many things he has done, he has conducted educational forums on global poverty, city wide cleanup programs, programs to educate on teenage pregnancy, malaria, and HIV & AIDS prevention. Not only is he an active participant on these campaigns but his student group have also constructed two hand pumps to provide safe drinking water in the community around his campus.
Wellington expresses why he wants to join other student leaders at MCC2014: "I want to attend MCC2014 because I want to be part of the end extreme poverty campaign. I hope to gain knowledge from international speakers and learn from other international student leaders through interactive panel discussions. I hope to share and offer my experiences and expertise on how to solve problems in groups and would also like to discuss the challenges my student organization faced to see how best we can come out with possible solutions to fight global environmental problems. I wish to bring back what I would learn and share with my friends in Liberia."
Congratulations Wellington! We're more than excited to see you this October at MCC2014!
