Aubaid Yousuf Itoo selected for International Youth Leadership Conference
Srinagar: A 21 year old boy, Aubaid Yousuf Itoo from Jammu and Kashmir has been selected as a delegate in International Youth Leadership Conference ( IYLC) scheduled to be held in South Africa in September this year. By this way ,he became the first student from J&K to get selected in such conference this year.
Hailing from Poshkreri Village of Anantnag district, Itoo , an undergraduate student of Civil Engineering at Yogananda College of Engineering & Technology Jammu (YCET, Jammu University) said that he was selected based on his essay titled "Leadership, its character and challenges in contemporary world" followed by rounds of interview sessions based on elaborative questions of world politics, international relations and leadership skills.
It is pertinent to mention that IYLC is a week-long youth forum on world politics, international relations, and justice that will give youth an opportunity to test their leadership skills, debate current issues, deliver speeches, draft resolutions, make executive decisions, and realize through experience the complexities of international relations. The main objective of the International Youth Leadership Conference is to facilitate an exchange of ideas across an ethnically diverse and socially responsible group of young international leaders. Their interaction provokes communication and dialogue that, throughout the week, provides an unparalleled learning experience and cross-cultural adventure.
"As per an official letter attachment, the sponsorship for attending such conference is mandatory. If I get sufficient of that from any institution (s), my main focus would be to draft a presentation on character, importance and need of young, intellectualized and highly educated political leadership in revolutionising the political scenario of a nation," Itoo said on talking to Kashmir Images.
"I would share an idea that there is a need of transformation from traditional "old wine in new bottle" to "new mind with fresh ideas" in shaping the political landscape of a place," he added.
