Congratulations to our Model UN participants Tiffany C., Gregory G., Kelly K., and Youngsu K., for earning the “Outstanding Country” award as ambassadors of Sierra Leone at the 12th annual MUN Summit in Irvine.
THE FOLLOWING IS AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY TIFFANY C. AND GREGORY G. ABOUT THIER EXPERIENCE AT THE MODEL UN SUMMIT:
The Model United Nations program is a YMCA program that simulates for its participants what it is like to be an ambassador in the actual United Nations. On April 25, 2013, Walter Reed students participating in this program headed off to the Irvine Hyatt hotel for the, an event in which ambassadors from all over California join together to share information and research regarding their assigned countries. In this program, each student is assigned a country and organ of the actual UN. For example, Non-Governmental Organizations, the International Court of Justice, General Assembly, and Economic and Social Council. At the Summit, we were given a chance to display and speak on our respective countries and debate on international issues. At the end of the Summit, advisors ands secretariats, volunteers dedicated to helping the program be the best that it can be gathered to vote on the students who best exemplified the principles of the MUN. Awards were given for the best ambassador, best country, and best advisor. Our assigned country, Sierra Leone, included ambassadors Tiffany C, Gregory G, Kelly K, and Youngsu K, were fortunate to be the recipient of the ”BEST COUNTRY” award. Our experiences and lessons learned through participating in this program will always be remembered.
Thank you to those that have signed up to volunteer, if you have not signed up yet you can do so here. Reminder that you can still encourage others to join us even if they have not signed up. Volunteers do not have to attend Reed and can be of any age. Thank you.
