Attending her first One Young World conference was an eye-opening, life-changing experience for Hope Solo.
Her most recent conference, the 2017 OYW Summit in Bogotá, Colombia, impacted her just as significantly.
As she explained in the video below:
The conference was also something of a reunion for Hope and her OYW friends. Case in point: Alexandre Mars of Epic Foundation.
Hope posted this amazing photograph of all of the other leaders at OYW, truly an incredible crew of talents from around the world.
What a night at #OYW2017 opening ceremonies. Honored to be among these global leaders in the fight for social change. Together, we are here to support more than 1300 young people from nearly 200 countries who are creating solutions to the worlds most pressing problems. Check out the live stream link in my bio and watch my interview with @oneyoungworld Co-Founder Kate Robertson tomorrow at 11 am CT.
For Hope, a highlight of the summit was meeting Hyppolite Ntigurirwa, a young Rwandan whose tale of survival was one of the most compelling stories at OYW. She had the privilege of introducing him.
