10 Young Leaders, 10 Years of Impact

Resolution kicked off its 10-year anniversary where it all began – Harvard World Model United Nations. 

We are thrilled to welcome 10 young leaders to our global community. Representing Brazil, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Germany, Panama, Switzerland, and the United States, these SVC Winners are working on solutions to tackle crucial problems affecting their communities – from college scholarship access to empowering young refugees to be their own life’s author.

We were joined by four Resolution Fellows, Carlos Garcia (Class 1), Zlatko Tadic (Class 3), Natalia Salas (Class 5), and Carlos Vargas (Class 10), during this moment of celebration and impact. 

Check out our awesome recap video from our SVC at Harvard WorldMUN.

  • Backtosch Mustafa is launching Applic-Aid in Hamburg, Germany. Applic-Aid is an online platform in Germany that will both provide mentorship and advice for students from low-income and refugee and migrant backgrounds to access and and win scholarships.
  • Jorge Isaac Iglesias Bloise is launching Education in Progress in Panamá, Panamá. Education in Progress will provide infrastructure, technology, training, and much-needed supplies to neglected schools in rural Panama.
  • Anna Borella and Tiziana Ballester are lanching ACT (Awareness, Confidence, Trust) in Geneva, Switzerland. ACT is an after-school program for 9-14-year-olds in Geneva that will provide an open forum for conversations about sexual education and sexuality as well as self-defence training to overcome stigma, poor information, and gender-based discrimination and violence.
  • Carlos Aguilar and Ivo Giuliano Giulietti Vega is launching MUN for Everyone in San Salvador, El Salvador. MUN for Everyone will provide opportunities for students in low-income communities in San Salvador to develop dialogue, diplomacy, and leadership skills through an intensive program culminating in participation in a MUN conference.
  • Caroline Moraes is launching Nós Mulheres (Us Women) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Nos Mulheres is seeking to break the cycle of gender-based and domestic violence in Brazil by providing education and training to teenagers in orphanages, a particularly vulnerable population.
  • Anand Macherla and Devrim Tiryaki are launching Refugee Film Festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Refugee Film Festival will be providing young refugees in the Albuquerque area with film-making training and access to equipment so that they can create a short film of their choosing. Films will then be screened at a festival hosted at their university.
  • Luis Diego Ramírez Hernández is launching Youth Leadership Alliance in San Jose, Costa Rica. Youth Leadership Alliance will provide leadership development and training opportunities to young people in San Jose. Projects developed through the program will then be considered by the local government for support.

Please join us in welcoming this new class of change makers to the Resolution Project!
