During her two-year mandate, Hajar gathered input from young people on the Sustainable Development Goals, Human Rights, Security and the Climate Crisis. She brought this input to the UN via speeches she gave there. For instance together with the King during the High-Level Week of the 75th General Assembly of the UN, at the Peacebuilding Committee as the first Youth Delegate ever and at places like the General Assembly, High Level Political Forum, Climate Action Summit.
