Congratulations to Marie-Alice McLean-Dreyfus (second from the left). ANU has announced that she has been selected to attend the G20 Youth Summit in Washington. Marie-Alice is a fourth year Bachelor of Arts and Asia-Pacific Studies undergraduate who will be joining five other young Australians attending the Summit this June. They will be making up the Global Voices G20 Australian Youth Delegations, established to promote the participation of young Australians in international diplomacy.

“Attending this summit will allow me to put my skills and knowledge of the world economy and global development into practice,” she said.

Marie-Alice will also be studying in Taiwan this September as a recipient of the 2012 Prime Minister’s Australia Undergraduate scholarship.

Marie-Alice, as a young person, how about grilling the Prime Minister when you see her about why she is supporting the decision to keep a 16-year-old in Albany’s high-security jail, somehow convicted of being a deckhand on a refugee boat – when the Indonesian authorities have authenticated his age?
