A young Ghanaian scholar, Kwesi Osei, has been nominated to represent the country at this year's edition of the Global Young Leaders Conference (GYLC) to be held in Washington, D.C. and New York City; Vienna, Budapest and Prague; or Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai.
The conference is a unique leadership development program that brings together outstanding young people from around the world to build critical leadership skills in a global context.
Kwesi Osei's nomination to fly the flag of Ghana at the international conference places him among a very select group of highly motivated and accomplished students from around the world.
The Dean of Academic Affairs of the GYLC explained that less than one percent of all high-achieving high school students are presented with the opportunity and the international gathering would be attended by representatives from about a hundred countries.
The GYLC described Kwesi Osei as “one of the world's most promising scholars” and said the international conference would provide him an opportunity to challenge his diplomatic skills and explore cultural differences as well as to build his confidence as a young global leader.
GYLC offers students the opportunity to learn from and exchange ideas with some of the world's top business leaders, policy officials, lobbyists, journalists, diplomats and academics in the challenging and dynamic environments of Washington, D.C. and New York City; Vienna, Budapest and Prague; or Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai
Kwesi Osei is a son of Kofi Osei- Ameyaw, ex deputy Minister for Tourism and former Member of Parliament for Asuogyaman.
