Model UN Held First Simulation of 2019-2020 Season

The 2019-2020 Model UN season is underway! On September 25, the team held its first simulation of the year, filling the Campus Center with more than 50 students from 9th through 12th grades eager to engage in diplomacy. Organized and moderated by the Secretariat, seniors Megha Thomas, Eyal Yakoby, Harjap Singh, Eric Leung and Aidan Njanja Fassu, along with Senior Mentor Julia Chang and Junior Mentors Anjali Bhatia and Katie Jain. The event provided an opportunity for novice members of the team to gain experience in the forum. It also served as a tryout for the team's participation at EmpireMUN, which will be hosted at New York University in November. New students and veterans shined in committee as they tackled international issues including global terrorism, sovereignty and refugee resettlement. As the team heads into the 2019-2020 season, they have ambitious plans and are well poised to compete against the finest Model UN delegations from around the world.
