Zuyue Yue 

Hi, my name is Zuyue Xie and it is really a great honor to have this opportunity to be a member in the group. I’d like to start the school; I’m currently a senior of University of Delaware with statistics and computer science major. The school is in Newark of Delaware which is not fancy and fashion as New York, but it has its own taste of the college life and I had so much joy in the past three years. I like the clas...

Final Project Reflection

For my final project, I chose to discuss food security and climate change. I already had a moderate amount of background knowledge on climate change, and when I looked into the development goals, I knew it was the one I wanted to focus on. However, I also wanted to use this opportunity to learn about something that was very new to me. I had read articles about how climate change would affect food produc...

My final project is on public-private partnership (PPP), a term to which I have never really paid attention before coming to the UN. I chose this topic out of curiosity about development policies’ implementation, since partnership and its various forms -- ‘global partnership’ ‘multi-stakeholder partnership’ ‘public-private partnership’ – pop up so often in the UN discussions and sound like promising solutions to world problems...

I want to first talk about my two weeks’ experience in the United Nations. I did not really care about the latest news or international issues before, but whenever I saw the UN on TV, I could not help wondering: what is this place for? What kinds of meetings do people have inside? So, I joined this internship program not only because I can expand my horizons and improve my skills, such as in public speaking and debate, but sol...

Participation, Challenge and Improvement

——Reflection of the UN Internship

It’s the first time I'm exposed to a brand new platform for me to the global world. It's the first time to be abroad. It's the first time to participate in bunches of intensive training courses. So many “first times”make up my impressing tour in New York City, that push me to discover myself and the world a lot.

Surprises are everywhere, we had conversatio...

After completing my final project on gender equality and child marriage, I harvested a solid, comprehensive understanding towards child marriage: its status quo, negative impacts, and potential solutions. Although child marriage is not a novel concept for me, I have never paid any close attention to child marriage before. Growing up in urban areas, I feel that child marriage is so distant from me that it solely means news arti...

Hello everyone! I am Xiao (Shawn) Lin from Tongji University and my major is computer science. I was born and lived in Fuzhou for 18 years until I went to my university. I think I am a little bit unique in this internship, since I guess I am the only master candidate, and my major is relatively most far from social science. I was a support engineer intern in Microsoft, and now I am an OpenDaylight developer in Tongji-Yale Syst...
