AYAC congratulates Benson Saulo

AYAC congratulates Benson Saulo, as the first Indigenous Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations.

Benson blogs “Saturday, 2nd April 2011. The phone call. “Congratulations you are the 2011 Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations”. An amazing wave of happiness swept over me – hard to explain but if you could imagine something that you have wanted so much for nearly half a year, you’re emotionally invested, you have allowed yourself and abilities to be judged and suddenly everything you had dedicated yourself too pays off, it all comes together in a few simple words. That is what I felt and continue to feel.”

AYAC looks forward to working with Benson in his role as the UN Australian Youth Representative and in what looks to be a very bright future!
