Hi Brandon! Event looks great. Think the international times are slightly off - since EST is moving to EDT on March 14th, it would be EDT 8am / GMT 12pm / HKT 8pm or EDT 9am / GMT 1pm / HKT 9pm.

I've changed it! Haha Nikol, you know my country better than I do – I forgot to consider the fact that we were going to EDT! Thanks a lot for the heads up :)

This is incredible! It is really inspiring to see how more and more youth are getting involved in high-impact projects – and that professionals are becoming more receptive to them.
