A life-changing journey to the United Nations

Arizona State University Juris Doctor candidate Ember Van Vranken traveled to New York for the U.N. Global Engagement Summit as part of her volunteering as a student judge for the WE Empower U.N. SDG Challenge, a global competition supported by ASU's Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. After a whirlwind week with the 2018 WE Empower Challenge awardees and ASU faculty, Van Vranken shared a first-person account of her experience with ASU Now.
