Apurv Gupta and Gabriela Lomeu Campos, both first year students at the University of Edinburgh, were recently elected as President and Vice-President of United Nations Association Youth, United Kingdom after winning nationwide youth elections in May 2013.  They are responsible for managing and coordinating activities related to the work of the United Nations among more than 45 UNA Youth branches across the UK and represent, the growing, 7 million UK youth population. 

The students at the University of Edinburgh played a vital role in the election campaign and the ‘geography’ of the results observed a considerable portion of votes from the city of Edinburgh. 

“Gabriela and I would like to thank our supporters and voters at the University of Edinburgh who believed in our dedication and motivation to commitment. Each and every individual effort has magnetised together and infused new life in our ultimate goal of strengthening the youth network in and beyond the United Kingdom.” - Apurv Gupta, President, UNA Youth UK
