KUALA LUMPUR: It has always been actress-entrepreneur Nur Neelofa Mohd Noor's mission to be part of the United Nations’ Youth Delegate Programme (UNDP).
And last Friday, the 28-year-old came a step closer when she was invited to become a panel speaker at the Misk-UNDP Youth Forum 2017, held in New York.
The event, called “Promoting Tolerance for Peace and Sustainable Development: A Dialogue with Youth”, saw Neelofa sharing her thoughts on cultural diversity and ways to harness talents of the global youth in order to create positive social change.
It was reported that she also had discussed her cultural experiences when she was younger, including the time when she spent 10 days in Japan to learn about its culture at the age of 16.
Attended by delegates representing nearly 60 countries, the forum was jointly organised by the Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Foundation (Misk) and UNDP.
On her Instagram, the actress shared various photos on her experience at the event, saying that she was able to network and that she had received many insights and ideas from other participants of the conference.
Last month, Neelofa was also part of another United Nations program, namely the Summer Youth Assembly 2017 held at the global organisation's headquarters in New York.
