"Being a volunteer at the UN allows me to experience and explore a bigger world, which has broadened my perspective and increased my determination to work for the public good and social development," she said.

Guo said her role is to convey UN action on global youth development to young people around the world including in China while bringing their stories to the international arena.

Last year, when the pandemic was raging worldwide, she was responsible for updating the envoy's blog every week to highlight the work of young people fighting COVID-19 in their communities.

She gathered information and published the stories of nine young Chinese. They included a volunteer providing mental help and online tutoring for children of frontline medical workers, a deliveryman offering a vital lifeline to countless people forced to remain at home, and a girl who cooked for medical workers.

"I'm happy and proud that the stories of these exemplary young Chinese can be viewed around the world, as the details have been posted on Western-dominated social media platforms," Guo said.

She added that if more young Chinese joined the international body in contributing to global governance, this would give China a stronger voice.
