March 15 was the last day for the student members of the SSND delegation and their teachers.
After attending our last CSW63 sessions at the United Nations, we gathered at Carolina Café at Villa Notre Dame (VND) to have pizza, to pray, and to thank God, Sister Eileen, and the students and their teachers for their participation at the CSW63.
VND staff prepared a colorful and delicious salad for us.
As part of our closing session, we each marked on a map the home country of one person that we met during the conference.
In the evening there was a closing ceremony. Each one of the participants received a UN flag symbolizing that each of them is a peacemaker wherever they are.
In addition, the students from Hungary, Brazil and the United States presented gifts to Sisters Eileen, Carolyn and Beatriz to express their gratitude for the week that we spent together at the CSW63.
