My future in philanthropy and activism requires confidence to advocate for a cause, protest, rally, compile research, write and recruit supporters. Model United Nations has inspired confidence in me to handle these challenges by teaching me a wide range of qualities. It has taught me wisdom, which has made me open and reflective of my thoughts and work.

Through my experiences — such as at this year’s National Model UN conference in New York — I have gained knowledge, which has expanded my understanding of the world, of international relations and of efficient group dynamics.

The Model UN class has also developed my skills, strengthening my abilities and providing me with new tools such as public speaking and resolution writing to help mobilize my goals. Most importantly, Model UN has taught me that patience and persistence can overcome almost any challenge. Model UN has developed my knowledge, advanced my skills and motivated me to be active and assured as I move forward with my career.
