My journey to Bali happened a couple of weeks ago when I had the privilege to attend the ICPD Beyond 2014 Global Youth Forum. I I must admit, i was truly taken aback and honored to be chosen by the United Nation Population Fund (UNFPA) as one of the youth delegates to represent Sierra Leone. The opportunity to meet and interface with young advocates from every corner of the globe revived my excitement and fueled my passion to learn and make changes in the lives of young people. I delightedly accepted the invitation with open arms and embarked on what I must say was one of the longest and most hectic voyages I have ever been on. Which coincidentally was my first experience traveling outside of Sierra Leone.
