Felipe Izquierdo

BCom Student Represents Canada at One Young World Summit in Bangkok

Felipe Izquierdo is a 4th year BCom Finance student who takes social entrepreneurship to heart. He was selected to attend One Young World Summit in Thailand’s capital city on the week of November 18 to 21. “Attending the One Young World summit in Bangkok is like being able -- in only a few days -- to travel the world and learn about the global problems directly from youth leaders that are working at the front lines in their countries and communities,” he says. Felipe was able to discuss solutions and projects about human rights, the environment, global business and entrepreneurship, peace, security, leadership and government with other student leaders. He admits that the atmosphere in a room where people from 196 countries all come together to be united by humanity and passion for tackling world issues is overwhelming and “hard to put into words.” He had the opportunity to attend as part of the student organization Enactus uOttawa.
