One To World at the 63rd Annual U.S. Naval Academy’s Annual Foreign Affairs Conference
One To World's collaboration with the U.S. Naval Academy's annual Foreign Affairs Conference (NAFAC) brings together students from universities worldwide to discuss current global affairs. Yuriy Bistro, a student from Ukraine said, “It opened a new vision for me in collaborating with academic peers. It helped me understand what people from different countries think. Most importantly, we became friends in such a short time that it hurt to part.” As a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering cross-cultural understanding and exchange, One To World's delegation plays a special role at NAFAC by adding a critical international perspective to the student deliberations on U.S. foreign policy.

Black History Month Reflections: Nigeria to America
Immigrating from my home country of Nigeria to America, “the land of the Free”, has been a life-changing experience. The tears, hugs, and sacrifices that were made the day my Parents decided to explore a different path and selflessly offer us the best gift we could ever ask for: the opportunity to make our choices. While the relocation to America was filled with emotions of excitement, it was also accompanied by countless thoughts and questions. Like how would I fit in at school? What’s the food like? Are they going to be kind? And more.
