Quinnie W. Collins, a UNMA first year student attended various networking events in her first year at Rutgers; still, most prevailing of them was her decision to attend the Africa Day celebration at the UN headquarter in NY. It was one of the most remarkable experiences, firstly because she had the opportunity to emerge herself with influential leaders like Dr. Djibril Diallo, President & CEO of Africa Renaissance and Diaspora Network (ARDN), ARDN serves as the Secretariat for the Global Alliance of Mayors and Leaders from Africa and of African descent.
She had another opportunity to have interacted with the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Liberia to the United Nations, Madam Cecilia Forgbe Wreh-McGill this summer in New York
Quinnie connected with Ambassador Delton Doman, Youth Assembly Ambassador for Liberia, who nominated her to be granted a scholarship to participate as an official delegate to the 27th session of the Youth Assembly, which will take place from August 12-14th, 2022 in New York City, USA. At the event, She submitted her pelage to The Red card campaign, which seeks to mobilize individuals from all sectors of society to commit to giving a red card to all forms of discrimination and violence against women and girls.
This event provided her with knowledge about some of the global challenges facing the youth in Africa. Quinnie's professional aspiration is to work with youth in developing countries around the world. “I am consistently searching for opportunities to obtain more knowledge in international affairs and relations”
