Are You Changing the World? Her Campus Wants to Hear About It!
Samantha Power, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, has led an extraordinary life improving our world, from reporting during the war in the former Yugoslavia as a recent college grad to advising President Obama on foreign policy. Her resume reads like a #lifegoals to-do list for all of us who want to make a difference — that’s why USUN and Her Campus are thrilled to announce the We Solve project. For the first We Solve initiative, Her Campus and USUN is offering student activists the chance to meet the ambassador herself.
The global problems we face today are enormous and growing. We’ve all heard the stories of war, refugees, climate change, terror, human rights abuses, and poverty. But behind many of these seemingly intractable problems, there is a passionate and powerful army of advocates fighting for a different way, fighting to give voice to the voiceless, fighting for new solutions.
And many of them are students like you. You can lead your communities—from your neighborhood, your campus and your networks—to meaningful change. You can engage the major global challenges of our time, see the humans within them and shape a different future.
Her Campus is looking for students advocating to confront the challenges the ambassador and her team tackle every day in New York, including:
- Defending Human Rights
- Stopping Conflicts and Mass Atrocities
- Empowering Women and Girls
- Welcoming and Supporting Refugees
- Environmental Sustainability/Climate Change
