Youth Delegate Programme Multipliers

Adali Frias Deniz graduated cum laude from Tecnológico de Monterrey, where she earned her Bachelor's Degree in International Relations. She has worked for the U.S. Department of State in the Public and Political Affairs and the Regional Security offices at the U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara, Mexico, and subsequently became an intern at the NAFTA office in the Embassy of Mexico in the United States. She was selected by her Institution in 2014 to attend Yale University as part of the International Excellence Program for outstanding students, and later on went to Sciences Po as an exchange student in 2015, earning a certificate in international affairs. Her commitment with social issues led her to be invited to participate in the Youth Council, an initiative sponsored by the U.S. Government to promote youth participation and engagement in social issues in Mexico. This initiative led to the creation of Social Changers Guadalajara, a project aimed at supporting local associations with funding and professional counseling for projects development and management. As an aspiring diplomat, Adali was selected to participate in the Young Diplomats Forum 2016 in Zagreb, Croatia. In 2018, she was one of the 6 young Mexicans selected by the government to participate as Youth Delegate at the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly, where she was assigned to work alongside the team of the Mission of Mexico to the UN in the First Committee for Disarmament and International Security matters. Adali currently works for the British Council, the UK’s international organization for cultural relations and educational opportunities. She is looking forward to collaborate with WFUNA to further expand the Youth Delegate program particularly in Latin America.
