Kenyan student imagines himself as UN chiefListen /
World leaders are in New York this week to discuss global issues, including human rights, sustainable development and conflict resolution.
Some of the future leaders are in universities around the world acquiring knowledge and getting skills to tackle global problems.
As part of educating young people about the United Nations and world affairs, the UN Academic Impact (UNAI) and the Brookings Institute launched a speech writing contest for university students.
They invited the students around the world to imagine a speech that would be made by the UN Secretary-General at the opening of the session of the General Assembly.
One of the winners of the contest, Wallace Chwala from the University of Nairobi in Kenya, shared his experience with UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha.
