Students Voice: Fernanda Bravo

Four lucky students have been selected as ambassadors to represent NAIS Pudong in the UN’s High Level Political Forum, on sustainable development in New York in July 2017. UNICEF have invited up to 80 Nord Anglia Education students from across the 43 schools to participate in this event and we were lucky to be allocated four student places.

Sammi Huang, I-Zac Lee (both Year 13), Benedicte Vestrum and Fernanda Bravo (both Year 12) are the lucky students who have been selected. They have all demonstrated dedication and passion for internationalism, Model UN and the Sustainable Development Goals and we look forward to them working with other students at NAIS Pudong to ensure that the entire community can benefit from their experience.

They will participate in workshops to develop their public speaking and presentation skills, a Model UN event and will even have the opportunity to present ideas to the diplomats working for international cooperation in the UN.

The following contribution by Fernanda Bravo, Y12, details her expectations from this amazing experience:

  • UN students

Throughout the course of the week, we will have the chance to interact with around 80 more students from all Nord Anglia schools around the world. This will be a chance for us to share our views on such an important issue like sustainable development. We live in such an international and culturally diverse environment at NAIS Pudong, and this has helped us to develop into socially conscious and responsible students with a genuine passion to help the overall community. As school ambassadors, we will do everything in our power to learn as much as we can from this magnificent experience.

The idea is that not only the students selected benefit from it, but rather the whole school community. We have the intention to firstly raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) with students and members of staff, so that they can understand their purpose. Personally, I’m strongly thinking of taking what I’ll learn from highly important participants of the event such as UNICEF representatives, and internalize all in my own life and acts, so that when I come back I don’t only tell the students about the sustainability and the goals, but also teach with the example.

Additionally, we’re planning on creating discussion forums after we’ve created awareness where students can share their views on sustainable development, so that they can take initiative and come up with ideas for projects we could introduce in school to help the community around us (whether it’s in Shanghai or internationally). We would first implement this within school, but our intention is to take advantage of being part of the Nord Anglia school family. This means that we would be looking to expand this discussion forum and allow students to share their ideas with other students who live in different countries through the online Global Campus.

I’ve always considered NAIS Pudong a very socially conscious school, but our intention in order to further improve is to use the Sustainable Development Goals as a platform to be used in service activities such as Project Week and the Tanzania Expedition. This will allow students to have a sense of how they are helping the community, and on a broader level, how they are helping the world to become a better place.

Sustainable development has become such an important issue in our modern world, therefore I couldn’t be more proud to represent my school and be part of multiple discussions about how we can improve life in a sustainable way for current and future generations.
