It is unbelievable to me that this semester was my last time taking Model United Nations as an undergraduate student. There is so much to remember and reflect on from this program that has guided me to new perspectives.

Having participated in two conferences in New York City, and this semester at the Model UN conference in Rome (MUNRome), I have met hard working people from all over the world who care about global challenges.

When preparing for the conferences, the only thing that stood out in my mind was finding common ground with other delegates. Asking questions and understanding conflicts in other countries has enabled me to connect closely with other delegates in helping them achieve their goals.

Model UN has helped me to become a strong advocate. Every single memorable moment from this class that has pushed me towards my career in global awareness. I am beyond grateful for all of the support from fellow classmates, head delegates, and the political science department at Pace University in New York City. I have acquired new skills that will be much needed when I continue advocating for causes that I desperately care about.
