|Greece's Permanent Mission to the United Nations.|
Not only did we go to the UN, we also traveled around the city to visit non-governmental organizations such as Amnesty International, and Permanent Missions to the UN. This opened my eyes to potential employers, as well taught me the different perspectives of countries in world politics. The first week we took a tour of the United Nations and then traveled to the European Delegation to the UN. Here, the EU representative lectured us on the status of the UN. Other country missions we visited included South Africa, Greece, Japan, and the United States.
I also learned how to navigate the city! I had to take so many different subways to reach my destinations. I also learned where to find the best coffee and pizza around Manhattan! The whole experience really opened my eyes to world politics, and solidified my ambition to continue studying international affairs.
