We’re delighted to have Sarah S. Al Suwaidan of Kuwait guest blog about her experiences from the recent UPS-supported Young Women’s World Forums. The forums were organized by The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, a long standing UPS partner and the largest global volunteer movement dedicated to girls and young women. This is one of the early results of the $2 million, five-year commitment we announced at the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative.

I am grateful to UPS for supporting the Young Women’s World Forums and inviting me to share my experiences.

I am 28 years old and was one of 157 young women from 81 countries who attended the Young Women’s World Forums.
