Despite imagining what it would be like during the months leading up to the trip , nothing could have prepared me for the truly amazing experience that I had in New York as part of the Nord Anglia UNICEF trip. The trip introduced me to an exuberant new city, supportive Nord Anglia staff as well as adventurous students from Nord Anglia schools all across the world. From the inspiring UNICEF workshops to visits to the UN and the many talented and driven youth leaders that I met on the trip, it was an affair that engaged many young minds, including my own.
With our freshly enhanced ideas about the world around us in mind, The Nord Anglia Education Model United Nations conference was an amazing two days of the trip which put this into action and allowed us to interact on a professional level with other students as well as students from NYU. It was a well-rounded introduction MUN conference's on a whole and was very fun and interactive.
The trip was not all business however and there was a perfect balance between work and play. The exciting excursions allowed us to see New York as well as experience some staple tourist activities like Broadway shows and skyline views from the Empire State.
Truly the most memorable part of the trip was the people I met and the connections that I made with them. The global and interconnected nature of Nord Anglia schools was highlighted through this trip and this made it the most rewarding and unforgettable experience I have had through the school. I could not thank them enough for their hospitality and inspiration and I would encourage anyone lucky enough to be offered this life-changing experience to grab it and never let it go.
