“At first, I didn’t know why I should join UPF. After going to some of their events I was able to deepen my knowledge of complex topics in foreign relations. I then participated in many of their social events, career events and even the radio committee. I found a place where I could have fun and at the same time build my CV. You should join become a UPF member for the life long global network and for the friends you will make.”

– Johan M. from Goteborg, Sweden
