Women LEAD would like to congratulate our LEADers Deepika, Jemie and Niharika for participating in the The Everest International Model United Nations Conference that was held from the 15th-17th October 2014. Model United Nations is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically role-play delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees.
2014 LEADer Dipeeka says, “MUN was a great learning experience for me. We were given an agenda to work on the Gaza Conflict and had to draft a resolution that would lead to conflict resolution between Israel and Palestine. It was definitely challenging but skills such as Public Speaking which I learned at Women LEAD really helped me get through it. Knowing that we had a role in ending the conflict and that our resolutions would be presented in front of the actual UN felt incredible.”
“Model United Nations (MUN) impels students into the world of diplomacy and negotiation. In MUN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors or delegates of UN member states to debate current issues on the organization’s vast agenda. MUN is a conference similar to the United Nations in which students participate as delegates to various UN Committees. Participants research and formulate political positions based on the actual policies of the countries they represent. This interactive platform complements what is taught inside classrooms by enabling students to apply their knowledge in practice.” (Source: http://goo.gl/H5A09E)
