A Day in the UN

This was way back in October 2013 when I became the Liaison Officer for the visiting Minster of Women Affairs to New York during the United Nations General Assembly. The assembly in 2013 had to be done in another UN building as the UN General Assembly Hall was under renovation
 
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon opening the session on Women's issue

Stevie Wonder was the guest of honour for this session. He was witty and funny and of course he had to sing something in
a capella. In short, we loved it!

Close up of Stevie Wonder. In case you are wondering, the lady in the box was a sign language person.

US Secretary of State John Kerry was also there to deliver his speech

I had my face in the screen!! Because the Minister was speaking next to me and the camera was on me instead of her. I had to control macho for what seemed and eternity but was probably only a couple of minutes!

River patrol, security was tight throughout the UN General Assembly. If Obama was in town, helicopters would be busy around the UNb uilding

This was taken Oct 2014 in the proper UN General Assembly Hall. This hall was under renovation in 2013, thus the pictures above was taken at the temporary hall
