Dubai - Arabstoday

A 15-year-old student will represent her school at the Global Young Leaders Conference in the US this month in which she will highlight the importance of combating child labour. Ameenah Kausar Bintory, who recently graduated from year 10 at Cambridge International School in Dubai, will attend the conference that will be held from July 11 to 20 along with 300 other students from 99 countries. \"Child labour and crime disturbs me, and I want to create a difference in the world and be able to make a change,\" explained Ameenah as to why she chose the topic of child labour. \"Education is very important and it is worrying to see children who are forced to beg on the streets, or who have to go to work. I think all children should have the opportunity to study, and that schools should be free of cost so everyone can attend.\" The Global Young Leaders Conference (GYLC) is a leadership development programme that simulates the United Nations. Article continues below Admission to the GYLC is based only on school nominations, where students are selected on the basis of high academic achievement, an inclination for social service and who demonstrate extracurricular involvement. Each GYLC session is designed to educate and motivate students by giving them the opportunity to explore cultural differences first hand, challenge their diplomatic skills, and enhance their decision-making skills in an exciting atmosphere that is both challenging and fun. Fulfilling dreams Ameenah is keen to point out that she aims to fulfil her dreams — to be a diplomat and to pursue a career in nanotechnology. As part of her attendance at the GYLC, Ameenah will interact with journalists and lobbyists in New York and Washington, in addition to attending nine sessions held by fellow students. \"As parents, we have done what all parents do seek the best for their children. But it is the sustained effort, inspiration, motivation and the determination of Ameenah\'s teachers that have brought her to this stage in life,\" said her mother, Nikhath Fatima. \"My husband and I believe that young scholars of today are the innovators of tomorrow. We want to give her this opportunity to engage in collaborative learning, and hone her problem solving, critical thinking and innovative skills so that she can compete in the knowledge economy.\"
