Last month our exceptionally skilled Legal Assistant, Kezia Doyle, who juggles working full time and studying law at QUT (Queensland University of Technology), had the incredible privilege of representing QUT as a delegate at the 3rd Global Peace Summit held at the United Nations in Bangkok. Over the course of three days, 350 students from 47 countries gathered to hear from distinguished speakers including Ambassador of The State of Palestine Walid Abu Ali, Nivine Sandouka, Loung Ung, Hassan Akkad, Antoinette Mutabazi, Jennifer Nadel, and Jenn Weidman.

The summit provided a platform for Kezia to connect with extraordinary individuals from diverse corners of the globe. She is confident that these connections will lead to remarkable efforts in shaping the world we aspire to see.

The experience has left Kezia inspired and motivated and she is eager to channel this energy into meaningful actions for a better world. We couldn’t be prouder of Kezia and can’t wait to see the positive changes ahead!
