Working at the United Nations does seem rhetoric doesn't it? Its not easy to handle but its not impossible either.
To be honest I have always wanted to work at the UN after my graduation. But examining myself as the Secretary General of UN I believe I can do the job. Even though a female has never been the SG of UN in history but one can always opt for a healthy competition and might emerge at the top. In my opinion not many people dream of being the SG but those who do make it possible as well.
Right now its not my dream of becoming the Secretary General of UN but it is something I would consider in the future. So what would be different if I were to be the SG of UN? Aren't all the same whoever is at the top? No, with every person its different because we all have diverse perspectives and have our own perceptions about issues in the society. We look differently, we interpret differently and then act differently as well. People usually say that the Secretary General doesn't have much power as it lies with the super powers of the world. I beg to differ. Its not like that. It solely depends on how influential the person is. If you know how to make yourself heard or make an impact, no one can stop you.
My personal favorite from the previous Secretary Generals is Kofi Anan. He is my role model when it comes to being the SG at UN. He is one genuine person who had worked tirelessly to make peoples life better and one should have such an approach towards the issues at hand. My foremost agenda when I am the SG would be to maintain and promote peace as the democratic world governments have till now. I would never go for a utopian approach like people have in the past.
Encouraging peaceful settlement of disputes would be my target. Apart from that I would want to ensure an equal rule of law for all states whether a major or minor state because they all matter equally. The year of 2016 has seen grave human rights violations all over the world. In my era this would not be acceptable no matter what actors are involved. I'll always have a strong stance against such atrocities. Being determined and faithful to my job is what would make it easy for me to survive.
