It is such a great opportunity to be one of your ambassadors representing New York and Indiana University (Online) for the campaign “United To Beat Malaria” which is organized by the UN Foundation. Join me and the team to prevent malaria, because as you guys  know malaria has been giving negative effects to our health. We should continue advocating about the prevention of malaria to develop solutions on different ways to prevent this issue. My fellow advocates and I from across the US, are developing solutions with our members of congress to prevent the spread of this disease. Thank you so much UN Foundation for this great opportunity. 

Ahead of the UNGA I am here to brief congress with the United to Beat Malaria campaign and United Nations Foundation ! Lets go team New York! I am looking forward to discuss the US foreign policy and domestic policy about different solutions to prevent malaria.

On behalf of @BeatMalaria, I would like to thank  the office of Jerry Nadler for meeting with us today and for Congress’s continued support of @PMIGov and The Global Fund, we can be the generation to

Little by little we can continue to find different ways to make our world improve, with different perspectives in the table innovative solutions would be made.

As I advocate about the importance of the freedom to choose as a woman, progress would be made.
