I’m so excited to be in New York and connecting with like-minded people!

My sister and I, joined by our Nalu ambassador Tamara, were invited to share our Nalu journey at the United Nations General Assembly in UN Headquarter in New York. Having the privilege of going to the United Nations and sharing our story is an experience that I will never forget.

The day we were at the UN Headquarter was so special because it is the day where leaders from all over the world gather to discuss on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call of action to end poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. It’s really amazing that we were able to take part in supporting UN’s goals through our efforts in ensuring that every child have access to quality education as well as responsible consumption and production. This is what we stand for, this is why we make Nalu.

I was also amazed by the experience of going to the UN Headquarter itself - I have never seen a street in a city completely empty! Because of security protocols, the UN had to block off all the streets near the building, so that was pretty cool seeing all that happen for the event that I was going to. While there, we also connected with some really amazing people, kind-hearted and interesting people with their hearts completely in the right place. Right when I got off stage, questions kept coming about Nalu and our journey forward, we even ended up doing two more interviews after that interview! Knowing that many people were interested and are supportive of our initiative made me feel so happy!

Going to this event also made me learn something about Nalu. I learned how what we are doing is actually small baby steps of the bigger SDG picture - one school uniform at a time. We are taking parts in solving children's lack of access to education, preventing children from hunger and teenage pregnancy, child labour, and the list goes on and on. Amazing how powerful one school uniform can be, and we’re grateful to have you as a part of our journey :)
