Hi! My name is Jiyan, and i am currently 21 years old. I live in Oslo and i am studying Political Science at the University of Oslo.
Politics has always been a passion of mine, and I have therefore been active in different organizations since I was young. Furthermore, one field of interest has always been the United Nations for me. I therefore wanted to challenge myself and become an active member of UNSA. During my first semester I got voted as project coordinator, and now I have the pleasure of being Vice President. This is a role I’m looking very forward to having, and I will do my best to promote not only UNSA, but the different goals of UN to non UN-students. My favorite SDG is number 5 “Gender equality”.
This is because being a woman myself, I have seen a lot of discrimination happening towards girls of all ages and cultures. It is therefore a passion I have to help as much as possible to lessen the burden and make sure that every human being is treated equally. I am looking forward to the new semester, and I encourage everyone that has an interest in politics, human rights or UN to join us for this semester and become a member!
