The delegates are a fundamental part of the SABF. Thanks to them, the SABF is present in the five continents. With much effort, they give students from all over the world the chance to participate in the SABF. Which is why we want to dedicate them a series of posts. Below you will find extracts from three delegates’ testimonies, which will be published in the next three weeks.
Here you will find the list of our delegates. To all of them, thank you very much for everything, we couldn’t do it without you.
Henrry Rojas Asuero (Universidad Técnica Particular de Loja, Ecuador)
“it was then that I had the initiative to promote the event within my university (…) to carry out presentations of the SABF in every class in which at that moment I was inscribed (…) the reception, was not what I expected, the questions were few and little curiosity about the forum was shown. Never the less I continued forward in the promotion of the event through the social networks.” However, after participating of the SABF, Henrry realized people’s reaction changed “It is an enormous change to see the students’ reception and enthusiasm to be part of the forum, and this is due to having been able to live the SABF experience which gave me the necessary means to approach people in a better way.(…) I trust that a lot of participants will identify with wanting to promote the SABF even though they haven’t attended the event…”
**Marcelo Bizantino (Universidad Católica Argentina, Argentina)
**“Promoting SABF in my university was hard at first, but after the commitment and work we did from the Student Federation of UCA we boosted it, taking the compromise of promoting to more than eighteen hundred students that conform our college community in every headquarter of the country.”
Yavnika Khanna (University of Delhi, India)“The South American Business Forum (SABF) can be equated to a cairn. The event was a milestone in my professional and personal journey. I attended the Forum in 2005, when it was a nascent idea. At that time, for a young Indian student, this meant crossing over oceans to experience a new continent, to get to know how far trade and commerce bind us all, to understand the significance of the word globalized. Today, it means much more to a student in my home country (…) It is my privilege as a delegate to give back to this cairn, and to add a couple of stones to make it taller and stronger”
