This 7-year-old girl from Manipur will represent India at a UN conclave on disaster management

A Class II student, Licypriya is currently working as a Child Disaster Risks Reduction Advocate in International Youth Committee (IYC).

On the disaster management issue, she said,

“I get scared when I see on television people suffering and dying because of earthquakes, floods, and tsunami. I cry when I see children losing their parents or people becoming homeless due to dangers of disasters. I urge everyone to join their hands, minds, and passions to create a better world for all of us,” reports Indian Women Blog.

The session will be attended by governmental and inter-governmental organisations, the United Nations, and other international organisations. Groups such as the National Societies of Red Cross, and the Red Crescent Organisation will also be present at the event.

However, this isn’t the first time Licypriya has been invited to participate in an international event. In 2018, she was invited to the 2018 Asia Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risks Reduction in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, which was held from July 3 to 7.

All of seven, Licipriya has been to eight countries, where she represented India at various levels. (Source: https://yourstory.com)
