Exciting Weekend for Model UN

We spent some time at the meetings and going in after school to work on our pre-conference documents. There was the position paper, doing pages of research to prepare for any topic that could be brought up, and writing opening speeches. We really only had one month for prep because the conference was in November and we started in September. It was kind of stressful because the deadlines for everything approached fast.

The actual conference was three days long. We got into these committee sessions where we debated about what we could do to help the issue that we had researched from our country’s stance, as if we were representing it. It was a good opportunity to educate ourselves on current world issues that we might not really be aware of.

We were able to work with others throughout this entire process. There were many different schools there, some from the outer islands. It was really fun being able to make friends during the sessions. We even had a delegate social which was like a little party.

We had to get our own lunches from Ala Moana, so it was kind of funny seeing tons of people in these suits and ties walking around the food court.

I had a lot of fun and would consider participating again next year.
