Matt is a Junior at Cornell University in New York State. His favorite areas of study are International Relations, Political Science, and Labor. He believes that exchanging ideas about global issues with teens of different races and religions is a great educational opportunity. Perhaps by combining the brainpower of diverse teenagers, solutions to world problems can be discussed and meaningful connections can be made.

Andrew is a Junior at Binghamton University. He was born in Alexandria, Egypt and moved to the United States in 2009 at age 13. Since he has come to the U.S., his views have changed drastically. Andrew has come to realize that, no matter the age, race, or religion of a person, everybody’s opinion truly does matter. Andrew hopes that the young minds of the world can come together and make the world a more tolerant and righteous place.

Bismellah Alizada is a Sophomore at Faculty of Law and Political Science, Kabul University in Kabul, Afghanistan. He was born in 1994 in Ghazni, Afghanistan. His family moved to Kabul in 2004 so their kids could access better educational opportunities. He graduated from Marefat High School, located in Kabul, in 2012. Bismellah is interested in cultural studies and cultural interactions. Such interactions can draw youths closer to develop novel, original and creative thoughts and innovations. I believe young energetic minds with high ambitions from diverse backgrounds can collaborate meaningfully to contribute in materializing the world they desire (and of course deserve) to live in.
