Model United Nations has become a passion of mine. Beginning in Year 10, I have visited many MUN conferences and have had the fantastic chance to be BISS Puxi’s second Secretary General and now I have the opportunity to visit the real United Nations!
By having the chance to go to New York for an eventful week, I am not only able to experience the political and educational side of the city, but will have a chance to visit museums, Central Park and the Empire State Building. Additionally, we will be able to spend an evening watching a Broadway show so we will surely have the best of all worlds.
In the time prior to our trip to New York, we have been working collaboratively with other year groups on the Global Challenge, focusing on the Global Goal of Wellbeing and partnering with the Huaxin Rehabilitation Centre. Ours is a fantastic project which will run over numerous terms so students from across the school will have a chance to take part and make a difference. Furthermore, we will investigate and search into China’s socio-economic and political attitude towards to the Global Goals and consider how one can improve any occurring issues, discussions that will then also continue in New York.
I definitely cannot wait until we arrive in New York on the 12 August – looking forward to such a once in a life time experience.
