one of most powerful women at UNITED NATIONS to be my WVOX guest

Judy Cheng-Hopkins, a resident of Hartsdale, will be my guest on my WVOX radio program (1460 on Friday, July 1 from 10-11 AM. She was recently named one of the 10 most powerful women at the United Nations by Forbes.
Appointed in August 2009, Cheng-Hopkins is the Assistant-Secretary-General for Peace-Building Support.

Formerly a Director of the World Food Programme, she now helps lead the UN’s Peace-Building Support Office, which coordinates all of the other UN agencies in their peace-building efforts in conflict and post-conflict situations, ranging from Afghanistan to Uganda to Sudan.
She is a member of the UN Sec. General's cabinet and heads an important UN agency and, also, periodically lectures at Columbia University. Also, Judy is a graduate of Scarsdale High Sch. where she was inducted into their "Hall of Fame" three years ago. In 2007 while she was the Asst. High Commissioner of Refugees in Geneva, Switzerland I interviewed her over the telephone on my radio show. PAUL FEINER
