Model UN Made Me More Aware of the World

Attending the 2016 National Model UN conference in Washington DC, I met the most hardworking students I have ever seen. They use expository writing to persuade other delegates about the issues under consideration. Along with my committee I learned how to come up with coherent resolutions to problems. This helped us understand each other and made me more aware of the problems going on around the world.

I have a different view on how diplomacy actually works and its purpose. It has given me more self-confidence and exercised my leadership skills. It pushed me out of my comfort zone while caucusing with other delegates. I had to be well informed and organized as I conducted myself in the committee.

Model UN has impacted my life for the better. It is a thrilling experience and something I would recommend to others.
