Welcome Youth Representative Michael Stevanovich

Michael Stevanovich from Lehigh University

As Abraham Lincoln once said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it,” and this ethos is what has driven me to dedicate my life to public service. I am the son of a Mexican immigrant and since I was 14 years old, I have worked in public service to create a more inclusive community and champion the very change I want to see in my community. I have worked for the mayor of Detroit, worked on several local political campaigns, and helped to improve community relations as a Government Affairs intern for Quicken Loans.

As I begin my college career studying international relations at Lehigh University, I have come to realize that my community goes beyond the city, state, or even country I live in. In the 21st century, we are now more than ever a global community. As former Secretary General said, ““More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together.” I look forward to working for Augustinians International to continue their great work bringing education and giving a voice to those who often do not have a voice for themselves. I hope to learn how NGOs can promote a more equitable and united global community and better understanding how NGOs can promote greater reform within the UN.
