MAJURO: My Micronesian Youth Services Talk
April 9, 2012, MAJURO, REPUBLIC OF THE MARSHALL ISLANDS
During the month of March 2012, I was asked to attend the annual meeting of the Micronesia Youth Services Network and it was hosted in Palau. MYSN is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that focus' on our island's problems and different ways of solving them.
Our motto for this year's conference was 'Carve it for a healthier lifestyle'.
The main goal of the conference was to focus on ways our Micronesian community can reach out to our people in reducing the numbers of Non-communicable diseases.
I had the opportunity to talk about where the Marshall Islands is at within the healthy lifestyle range. I also had the opportunity to talk about the Micronesia Challenge and the Programs that I work with which are the Jo-Jikum Environmental Organization and the Young Champions internship program. After the conference we were given the opportunity to go out and look around the Beautiful Rock Islands.
