On the 2nd of March 2019, I will be travelling down to Marrakech from Rabat to attend the TEDx “We Are the World – Identifying Identity” event. As I am interning in Morocco and am in touch with women coming from a panoply of cultures, I thought this would be a great conference to attend. There will be amazing speakers, such as the Swedish Ambassador Niklas Kebbon, Zoreh Tabatabai who was employed at the UN Headquarters, and Dr Florian Langenscheidt, a dedicated environmental activist.
I have been attending conferences since 2017 to begin networking and to meet various academics and speakers that work and are interested in the same fields as I am. For the other young people out there: look out for conferences near you to begin networking! Conferences are amazing platforms to put your name out there likewise to learn about interesting topics.
Keep posted for a post that outlines how to network successfully!
