OWN Youth Represent in Qatar

OneWorld Now! alumni Ali Assim and Jackie Brown will be speaking this weekend on a Youth Panel at the 10th Annual Doha Forum for Democracy, Free Trade and Development! This is an amazing opportunity for our young leaders who will be hobnobbing with the world’s elite and giving their unique perspective on globalization. Ali and Jackie studied Arabic and leadership through OneWorld Now! and studied abroad on scholarships to Morocco and Egypt when they were in high school. As college students (from the Evergreen State College), they now have another opportunity to put their global leadership skills into action! Check out the details of the conference and see who they will be meeting.

Qatar is one of the richest nation’s in the world (thanks to the abundance of oil and gas) and the government has kindly sponsored Ali and Jackie’s trip and participation in this panel.  This will certainly be a golden opportunity for these young leaders!
