A St. Thomas More graduate has been chosen to to be a delegate at the Youth Assembly at the United Nations headquarters next month.

Danielle Kydd’s years at STM were marked by a ready willingness to help anyone in need, but now she finds herself in need of a little help.

To get to the Youth Assembly in New York City, Kydd needs to raise US$1,700 to help cover her travel and program costs. A crowdfunding campaign is underway at gofundme.com/daniellekyddun.

A human rights advocate, Kydd spent 10 days in the Dominican Republic two summers ago experiencing local living conditions. She has taken a leadership role in organizing initiatives pertaining to gender equality, poverty, education and other social issues. She will bring these experiences to bear in her new role at the UN to create positive social change for youth around the world.

As a youth delegate, Kydd will engage in dialogue and generate partnerships with youth from around the world, UN high officials and staff, and individuals from the private and public sector.

She and other youth delegates will be tasked with developing a Post 2015 Development Agenda for the UN Millennium Goals, goals that include issues such as gender equality, poverty, education, and the environment.

“I see the UN Youth Assembly as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet other like-minded youth that also want to see a world with less injustice and a better standard of living for all,” she says.

“I am excited for everything I am going to learn and the ways I will be able to apply this.”

Kydd plans to share her knowledge with students at St. Thomas More and her classmates at the University of Ottawa to inspire other youth to action.
