Our Model United Nations Club enjoyed a successful and satisfying three-day virtual conference, organized by American University, on March 19 – 21, 2021. Our delegation was able to participate from our school library, which made the experience special, as it was the first time this school year that the club was able to meet in person.
Each one of our delegates worked extremely hard preparing and formulating directives and resolutions. We congratulate them all and recognize their commitment and dedication: Morgan Adamson '23, Dana Burnett '23, Angelica Cruz '23, Amanda Erlichman '23, Nuala Reynolds '23, Amrit Singh '23, Alex Carson '21, Maeve Reynolds '21, Ananya Singh '21, and Cecilia Visco '21.
The committees ranged from General Assemblies such UNHRC, UNESCO and the African Union to Crisis Committees, namely the Cabinets of Russia, Ethiopia, China and Germany and the Government of National Accord, the Cyprus Police and Catalonia. The delegates took on the roles of Ministers and Mayors. They represented countries from Canada to Sudan. The topics included human rights, world health and terrorism.
Debate was intense and engrossing and our delegates spoke up and discussed the issues with the energy and enthusiasm that Ursuline’s team is known for.
The conference recognized five of our delegates with these awards:
Amrit Singh - Diplomacy and Best Delegate
Ananya Singh - Honorable Mention
Maeve Reynolds - Diplomacy
Nuala Reynolds - Diplomacy
Cecilia Visco - Diplomacy and Outstanding Delegate
We are especially proud because the Diplomacy Award is determined by the delegates themselves in each committee. It is awarded to the delegate that they enjoyed working with the most and considered the most diplomatic.
