She received the President’s Volunteer Service Award and Gold Medal at an event in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC.
This award is a tremendous distinction awarded each year to American citizens and residents by the President of the United States of America through an organization, and honors those who have demonstrated commitment and set examples in the community. The gold medal is awarded to those individuals who have volunteered more than 500 service hours within a 12-month period.
Ms. Vladoiu has been acknowledged for her work also by the Governor of NY Andrew Cuomo, the NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and Congressman Brian Higgins.
The awards were presented during a three day event marking The 1st Annual Youth for Human Rights North American Regional Summit and The 15th Annual Youth for Human Rights World Educational Tour Briefing.
The Secretary-General of IUBCCI, Ms. Vladoiu has been constantly known as an advocate for human rights at the international level.In 2016 and 2017 she represented the United States at the United Nations for the International Human Rights Summit as a Youth Ambassador. She partnered with Youth for Human Rights International, other groups and local organizations to make human rights a reality and inspire others to become advocates for tolerance and peace.
In her acceptance speech, Ms. Vladoiu said, “I know my human rights because I studied law school, but I disagree with the fact that you need to have a Master’s degree in human rights in the 21st Century to get to know all of your human rights. Something so basic needs to be taught to every man on Earth!”
