ECA Spotlight: Another Step Closer to Becoming a World-Class Diplomat

29 January 2015

Our Model United Nations ECA allows students to take on the role of a UN delegate to learn about communication, globalisation and multilateral diplomacy, by attending mock United Nations conferences. Year 12 student Hyun Jin Kim tells us about a recent conference they took part in and what it means to him to participate in MUN…

From 16 to 18 of January, the members of Model United Nations ECA attended the Concordia International School Shanghai Model United Nations VI and we all appreciated the fact that we were able to participate in such a worthwhile and enriching activity.

I attended the General Assembly 1, the Committee of Disarmament and International Security, and our discussion topic was the regulations of pilotless drones, regulations on mercenaries, security issues in Pakistan, and reduction of light weapons around the world. I had special interest in the regulations of pilotless drones because I often see on the news that a lot of people are accidently killed by drone attacks in the region of Pakistan Kashmir. During the conference, I, as a delegate of Lesotho, could share amazing ideas with other delegates who have come from various regions around the earth to attend this three-day event: Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Nigeria, America etc.

As it was my fourth time participating in a Model United Nations Conference, I did not really struggle with the rules of the conference. However, as always, I was astonished at the profound knowledge that other delegates were showing in the debate. I really feel MUN conferences are such a beneficial activity because they benefit you in myriads of ways: knowledge, social skills with other people, delivering speeches, confidence etc.

As a whole, I, once again, had a FANTASTIC experience. I would really like to express my full gratitude to Ms. Kernaghan and CISSMUN Directors and students officers for helping me get a position in this, such a worthwhile activity.
