Annyeonghaseyo! (which means ‘hello’ in Korean) –
Today, almost 80 youth leaders with and without intellectual disabilities from around the world gathered in Pyeongchang, South Korea for the first day of the 2013 Special Olympics Global Youth Activation Summit (GYAS, for short). Over the next week and a half, these passionate and dedicated youth leaders will talk about leadership and share their experiences about spreading the message of Special Olympics to their schools and communities.
To give you a sneak peek of the amazing leaders here at the GYAS – meet Brina. With her partner Sashi, she’s making history as the first Filipina to represent the Asia Pacific region at the Global Youth Summit. It’s only Day One and she’s already inspired me with her leadership and determination! Read her story.
Stay tuned over the next week and a half for more great updates from the youth leaders themselves!!
