College student Petra Pauerova talks about her experience as a UN youth representative.
After her professor told her about the post of the UN Youth Representative, Petra Pauerova decided to send her application.
In 2019 she was elected to that position. At that time, few people in Slovakia knew about her position. Pauerova wanted to use her words to change it and raise her awareness among her youth. She also wanted to emphasize the issue of unpaid internships for students.
She also told the Spectator College podcast that the United Nations is good at listening to young people.
