Cynthia Yue

The United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) announced that Ms. Cynthia Yue, a Tennessee native and rising senior at the George Washington University, has been selected as the 2021-2022 UNA-USA Youth Observer to the United Nations. In this role, Yue will engage young Americans in the work of the United Nations and amplify their voices at UN events during her one-year term. Yue brings nearly seven years of experience as a volunteer leader at UNICEF USA and serves on their National Council.

Yue has witnessed firsthand the UN’s lifesaving work across the world, and how women and children are often disproportionately affected by global challenges like COVID-19, climate change, and poverty.
