It is indeed a great honor to have been one of the selected participants to this Global event. Per the remarks by Mr. Kerry, out of over 5,000 applicants, only 700 applicants are selected around the globe to participate in this event.

My tiny island of Pohnpei State, which is indeed very small and unrecognizable by its abstract figure on the world map, is now participated in this important global event commencing this year 2016. Not surprisingly, I had came across such situation of locating where my island is repeatedly with different participants approaching my direction. As a Pohnpeian represent, I will ensure of its recognition and its existence to the world while in this opportunity, not 100% but perhaps 5% for now.
