“Rebecca: Wow – you did an incredible job today. Your report, the powerpoint presentation and the video were of such high caliber, I was so proud and so impressed. I think you really wowed the audience and it was a demonstration of both quality and competence, and the power of the voice of youth. Well done!”

Having seen the youth forum in Japan, I know that ours set a new standard for ISPCAN!”
