Youth for Human Rights International 2nd Annual Youth Summit Delegate Profile: Guyana
September 28, 2005
Sixteen-year-old Lauren Narissa Cripaul goes to Christ Church Secondary School in Guyana, and is passionate about human rights. She has taken an active part in essay contests and debate sessions on the topic of human rights.
Ms. Cripaul said "In a fast paced world the future leaders of tomorrow will be us, the younger generation. Despite this, many children are sadly denied their basic human rights in life. If these rights were supported one hundred percent and promoted by people worldwide, so many issues relating to children would be taken care of. That is why I want to participate in this Summit."
Young leaders from 30 countries arrive in Los Angeles this week to participate in the 2nd annual Youth for Human Rights International Summit, which takes place this year at Jordan High School in Los Angeles. The summit has been co-organized by Jordan High School and Youth for Human Rights International. It is being held October 1-3, 2005.
