Sireethorn Leearamwat, Thailand’s 2019 Miss International, will be one of the speakers at this event. Before winning the beauty competition, the woman known as Bint Sireethorn worked as a pharmacist and strived for her life and her family. With her professional background and career, Bint is the most suitable and qualified speaker to introduce one of IYB’s sub-themes in the health sector, particularly “Good Health and Well-Being.”

Istanbul, Turkey was chosen as the location for this event for a couple of intriguing reasons. Turkey’s distinctive geographic beauty is complemented by a rich historical and cultural heritage that spans from the Roman Empire to the Ottoman Empire to the modern Republic of Turkey.
