Idris in America
With a little help from Be Kids Australia, aspiring young diplomat Idris Ibrahim travelled from Nairobi, Kenya to Boston, Massachusetts to participate in the Model United Nations Conference.
Over fours days in mid-February, Idris attended the conference as a delegate of his university - USIU Africa - and participated in debates on issues ranging from the refugee crisis, conflicts in Africa and emerging security threats in the world.
For Idris, it is a dream come true. During his whirlwind tour, he also visited CNN at their Atlanta office and met with a representative of the Kenyan Ambassador at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington DC.
