Hillary Clinton at the United Nations

As many of you may know by know, I am pursing an advanced degree in global affairs and is interested in pursuing a career in the humanitarian field. I currently intern at the United Nations(UN) which affords me a lot of great opportunities.

Former First Lady and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, visited the UN to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women that was held in Beijing in 1994. It was at this conference that she famously declared that “women’s rights are human rights.”The meeting was also attended by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson.

The event was great and Hillary Clinton was introduced as “president to be” in which she gracefully blushed and nodded. However, it was overshadowed by the press conference that she later had to address the scandal involving her using her personal email while being Secretary of State.
