The conference with the theme: ‘Engaging Youths in Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)’ was organised by the Nigerian Model United Nations Society, which has been conducting NISSMUN conferences since 2005, according to a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report.

Chinemenma said: “I wanted to be the first girl to occupy the position and I want to play a leading role in efforts to prove that young people have something to offer in terms of achieving the SDGs. Contesting for the position was interesting because we were asked.”
