On Saturday, November 19, 2022, nine middle school students in grades 6-8 took part in a Model UN Conference at Northeastern University in Boston. These students were “delegates” of Romania, South Korea, and Morocco. During middle school clubs period they worked hard to research their country and the issues they were preparing to debate. They joined 350 middle school students from many schools around New England as they discussed important world issues and worked to pass resolutions to solve global problems. The issues and the students who grappled with them for this particular conference were:

  • Peacekeeping in Humanitarian Responses (Madoka Hubbard, Clive Sutton, Tadhg O’Sullivan, Adam Ahmed, Duncan Beirne)
  • Language and Culture Preservation (Quinn Clark, Kesariya NallariJhala, Sam Leviton, Gideon Borisy)

Preparing for a Model UN conference involves extra work outside of school, a commitment to effective collaboration, and a desire to make a difference in the world. All of our students performed so well and Kesariya was recognized for their public speaking skills. Many of these students will be taking part in future Model UN opportunities throughout this school year. Be sure to ask one of our BDS delegates about their experiences as international diplomats!
