One Young World – Wen-Yu Weng

My name is Wen-Yu Weng, 18 years old, a third year biomedical student at Mahidol University in Thailand, and the Taiwanese delegate to One Young World. My only goal at this conference is to contribute as much as I can, while also learning from others as much as possible.

I am a strong believer in individual freedom, human rights and equality. I study biomedical science not in aspiration to be a doctor (sorry, mom!), but out of a serious desire to learn about the scientific basis and concepts of medicine and health care that may be able to solve global health problems that we are facing today.

I have been interested in activism and campaigning since the age of 13, and have been involved in various causes, whether it be the fight against poverty and hunger, or to stand up for marginalized populations of society. Most recently, my efforts are dedicated towards bringing awareness of sexual slavery of the past and present to young people of Thailand.

I am currently an individual member of the Asia Pacific Youth Network, and do my best to work closely with various organizations on my own. I spend my free time composing terrible music, participating in my university’s debate club activities as its incumbent President and pretending I’m good at sports. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As a delegate, I want to empower the voice of young people at this conference. I want to be part of this fantastic movement of youth working towards making themselves heard loud and wide. Our voice is our power, and our youth is our tool. I hope that, by the end of this conference, in my own little way, I may be able to inspire changes. I hope that, together, we will implement resolutions that will be able to call upon practical and concrete solutions to real problems, and that we will be mutually motivated to work even harder in the future!

The time is ours, let’s seize it!
