YingYing Shang

2013 Speaker

YingYing Shang is teen advisor to the United Nations Foundation Campaign Girl Up, an innovative campaign for American girls to raise awareness and funds to benefit adolescent girls in developing nations. She is a 16-year-old senior at Conestoga High School and one of only 16 American girls selected as teen advisors, who are leaders and Girl Up spokespersons at events, meetings and conferences in their local communities throughout the United States. Girl Up focuses on the needs of girls who often struggle for basic opportunities to go to school, see a doctor, or be included in their communities. Shang hopes to combine her leadership as Girl advisor to the board of directors at Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania, her work as junior delegate to national gender equality organization Vision 2020: Equality in Sight, and her position as UN Girl Up teen advisor to make a difference for girls worldwide.
