To be honest, when I was submitting my application to the inaugural International Diplomacy Forum for Young Leaders in Bangkok, Thailand, I was sceptical of the event’s offerings and relevance to me, a mere pre-medical student. However, the initially jarring exposure to multidisciplinary university students from all over the world allowed me to break out of my Medical Science-cocoon and appreciate the varied and fascinating perspectives of others on contemporary global issues. It was unexpectedly invigorating.
