Youth for Human Rights International 2nd Annual Youth Summit Delegate Profile: Turkey
October 2, 2005
20-year-old Berza Simsek is constantly active in the human rights field. She is an International Relations student at Hacettepe University and works closely with the University’s Centre for Research and Application of the Philosophy of Human Rights. She can often be found visiting the Centre on her own volition to share her views and contribute to their activities.
Ms. Simsek stated "One of the reasons I want to participate in the International Youth Summit is due to my strong interest in human rights. I am interested to know what youth around the world think about human rights. This will be a great opportunity for all youth, without discrimination of race, color or ethnic origin to share together. At the end of the Youth Summit we can form a common goal for providing human rights to others and I will be proud to be a part of this."
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.
