Laura Nicol is a young and talented lawyer from Sierra Leone who has been selected to participate in the 61st Graduate Study Programme at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.

The theme for this year’s program is “All Rights for All People” – Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 75.

This two-week-long summer seminar will provide an overview of some of the main themes addressed by the United Nations such as sustainable development, humanitarian action, disarmament, peace and security, trade, climate, health, gender equality, education, refugees, and migrants.

Laura is excited to deepen her understanding of the United Nations and Geneva through first-hand observations, lectures, research, and visits to Geneva-based institutions.

This year’s cohort comprises 58 students and workers from 50 countries across the world from various fields, backgrounds, and expertise. Laura is grateful to God to be part of this life-changing experience and is looking forward to making the most of this opportunity.
