Last year Young People in International Affairs (YPIA) embarked on a search for the top 35 young African leaders in international affairs under the age of 35. What we found were some amazing individuals doing extraordinary things. We are proud to say that we accomplished our goal of finding people that can truly inspire others. Media in Africa and around the world also highlighted the stories and accomplishments of the 2012 Top 35 Under 35 winners.
Due to the project’s success, YPIA is proud to announce the second annual Top 35 Under 35, but with a twist. This year we are looking for foreigners under 35 years of age making an impact in one or more African countries in the fields of politics, business, media, education/academia, community development and science and technology. We need your help. For more information and to download the official nomination form, please click here.
