Open Learning student joins the United Nations Youth & Students Association of Bangladesh
Monjur-A-Morshed, a 2nd year LLB (Hons) Open Learning student, became a member of the association after participating in a Model United Nations Conference.
Impressed with his performance at the conference, the United Nations Youth and Students Association of Bangladesh (UNYSAB), invited Monjur to attend an interview with the organisation's President, Directors and the Head of the United Nations Information Centre. In the interview Monjur was required to demonstrate his communication skills, opinions on different global matters and how he would execute future UNYSAB projects. Impressed with his skills and intellectual abilities, Monjur was offered a membership.
As a member of the organisation, Monjur is required to work on major projects and also with other international organisations such as UNICEF. It is his responsibility to co-ordinate and execute the aims of the organisation and each project.
The UNYSAB is part of a network of over 100 United Nations Associations in UN member countries across the world. It works to promote the goals of the UN and works as a platform for youths to raise their voice for Human Rights and Development, Environment, Disarmament and Social Justice. The UNYSAB is an excellent environment for the development of organisational and leadership skills, intellectual abilities and research orientation.
Other than being a member of UNYSAB, Monjur is also involved with a number of other organisations. He is the Assistant Secretary for Public Relations at the London College of Legal Studies Debate and Mooting Club. He also works as Deputy Leader for Community Action, a charitable organisation which raises funds for disadvantaged children. Monjur also attended BIND 2011 which took place in Jakarta, Indonesia and became the first breaking adjudicator in an international competition for the London College of Legal Studies (South).
