A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Eesha shared her story at the 2013 Global Youth Forum.

Name: Eesha

Age: 15

Hometown: Maple, Ontario, Canada

My favorite hobby is: photography

In 10 years, I hope to be: travelling around the world, helping animals, and protecting the environment.

If I were an animal, I would be: a monkey - playful, happy, and free!

I think PTPI is important because: they are uniting people from across the globe to help stop or reduce major issues in society today.

The best moment at the Global Youth Forum was: the whole experience! There wasn't one moment that was better than the other, and I will take so many things away from the experience.
