Hello World Pulse Sisters around the world, I am delighte to share with that you that i have been selected as a representative for Bangladesh in Bangkok in One Young World Summit, Thailand, 18 - 21 November . One Young World is a charity that stages an annual Summit, which gathers together the brightest young people from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change. The 2014 Summit in Dublin, Ireland welcomed 1,250 delegates aged between 18 and 30 from 190 countries. Unlike any other event, the Summit gives young people the kind of media platform and forum ordinarily afforded only to theleaders of nations and corporations. At the Summit, the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders; the One Young World Counsellors. Previous Counsellors have included President Bill Clinton, Nobel laureate Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Sir Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Mary Robinson, Fatima Bhutto, Unilever CEO Paul Polman and Barclays CEO Antony Jenkins.

In this summit I can debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues in my country with other young global leaders. By attending the summit I will become One Young World Ambassador and I will be charged to work on my own initiatives or lend the power of the One Young World network to those already in existence. The previous Ambassadors have gone on to have an impact on issues ranging from education, global business, health, human rights, sustainable development and transparency.

I belong to a middle class family and my parents are the inspiration in my life because they always have helped me to reach the goals i wanted even though there were many hardships. From my generation I am the firstgirl who has been able attend the University from my family.Since my childhood i alwayshave been such student to get a scholarship which had helped me to pass my high school and college level. I also successfully obtained 95% scholarship from IKEAto attend an International Institutionat Asian University for Women .

To attend this life changing summit I need£2,750which is 3170 US dollar . I need additional support for my visa and plane tickets too which is impossible for my family to support.

Your support will help to grow a young woman as achangemaker inher respective Indigenous community.

I am raising fund to attend this lifechanging summit so that i can contribute more to my community, I will be grateful if you will spread my story and support in my campaign.
