Andrew Nalani Speaks at Goalkeepers

Andrew Nalani ’12 recently recounted his educational journey from Uganda to present day at Goalkeepers, a forum hosted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in connection with the UN General Assembly. Andrew spoke about how his understanding of education changed fundamentally as a result of his UWC experience. “I was invited to ask my own questions and to imagine my own answers for the first time,” Andrew said from the stage at Goalkeepers. The focus of the forum was exploring concrete ways to meet the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development and Andrew was asked to speak as a leader in the field of education. Andrew is currently a Doctoral Fellow in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. His pitch to the thought leaders from around the world was pretty simple in the end: “If we can get each young person on this planet access to a transformative education, we will leave this world a much better place.” You can watch Andrew’s presentation here.
