Highlights from 2010 Youth Conference
 
What panelists and particpants thought of 2010 Conference
The event was fantastic I thought it would be good, but it was better than I expected. Irfan Saeed and I were saying that we wish something like this was available when we were young. I really don't have any criticism, but 2 thoughts came to mind:
1. In future years, it would be great to have a bit more national representation. This would of course require a larger space since you were already at capacity.
2. Going forward, it would be great to have more skill-building workshops, eg how to write talking points, preparing a resume interview etc.
But these are minor compared to what you accomplished.  - (2010 Conference panelist)
 
 Frankly, it opened my eyes for the first time to the fact that political and social activist access is not as far gone as I've often dismissed it as.  All the panelists were inspiring and relatable.  Further, the sense the community I felt sitting at the Embassy as Salman Ahmad serenaded us was overwhelming.  Thank you for organizing a fantastic, informative day.  - (2010 Conference participant)
