SISWP CSW 63 delegate Kimberly Berem, gives a quick report on her first day in New York. #swpcsw63, #swpinspiringwomen

 I am so honored and humbled by this experience already even before the main event starts on Sunday 10th March 2019-NGO Commission on Status of Women 63rd Session on Social Protection Systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls!

The scholarship from Soroptimist International South West Pacific, the support from Soroptimist International PNG National Rep, fellow Soroptimist Sisters and my own Club, family and friends to get here is a story in itself. My God has made all this possible!

Today setting foot at United Nations Headquarters for the very first time to get our UN passes and a brief tour was surreal, a feeling I can't find the right words to describe. I am truly humbled and honored to have set foot in a building and place where global issues are discussed and Presidents, Diplomats, Prime Ministers, Ministers, Delegates from countries all over the world have trod, from this rooms discussions are held, decisions are made for all across this globe. Next week will be hectic and buzzing with it's own program but I leave it for now.
