At Model United Nations conferences students from all over the country get together to simulate the real United Nations.  By assuming the role of an ambassador, students replicate and discuss real world issues.  It brings out the good and the bad of all the students while keeping the environment educational and enjoyable.  Learning to adapt and to listen and be patient is crucial in making sure everyone is happy with the end result.  In the end, my experience at the 2013 National Model United Nations conference in Washington DC was challenging but rewarding. I hope future students get to experience this everlasting bittersweet feeling.
