WMU Day 4: Peace and Development Forum 

Hello everyone! I have just had the most inspiring day, one that will be one of my fondest memories for the rest of my lifetime! Today we had the opportunity to visit Peking University in Beijing, China. There we participated in a Forum, lecture style. All 56 girls got 2 minutes to speak on our perspective of peace and economic developments, and offer our own solutions to world problems. We also got to listen to Peking University Students share their expertise on the issues.

To be in a room full of such brilliant minds from around the world, all willing to share their knowledge, and open their minds to one another was an absolutely moving experience; I cried, I laughed, and I learned a lot about the world! This pageant so far has been so enriching. I feel like I have a new family from around the world! And we’ve only just begun!

We left the forum with a beautiful present from Peking University, that will be one of my most prized possessions for years to come! I am so thankful for their generosity and hospitality ☺️❤️


Tomorrow we are off to be tourists around Beijing before catching a plane to Shanghai, China! Can someone pinch me please? Updates to come, but in the mean time here are some more casual pictures from today!
