Inspirational speaker Dang Kim Phuong has been voted onto the directorial board of the International Youth Parliament (IYP).

The new position at IYP would help her motivate positive changes in Vietnamese society, she said.

“I want to inspire and empower young Vietnamese people to develop the nation,” she said.

She will select four representatives from Vietnam to join the IYP, giving them a chance to speak out about transparency, inequality, poverty, human rights and dealing with crises.

“I focus on cultural diversity and education, so my plan is to renew text books, stimulate creativity in education and upgrade knowledge to meet Industry 4.0’s demands.”

The IYP is a network of young leaders from 150 countries with a vision of building an equitable, sustainable and peaceful world. Each country has four representatives aged 16-29.

The IYP promotes youth participation in the development process, supports skills and capacity building programmes, advocates for the rights and freedoms of young people and their communities and supports young peoples’ on-the-ground initiatives to achieve human rights, sustainable development and a culture of peace.

They will work on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals towards 2030.

Phuong has earned a wealth of knowledge and experience in training and coaching teams, helping employees to improve their learning, working and soft skills. Before becoming a speaker, she was a trainer and life coach.

Her business received a prize from the Women Leaders International Network in 2011, leading her way to international events and projects where she has delivered inspiring speeches about peace, inequality, human rights and other global issues.

Phuong is an ambassador for the Global Peace and Prosperity Initiative. This year, she will attend the Global Women’s Summit in Switzerland. — VNS/VNA

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
