“模型”团聚


Even in the best of circumstances, competing against hundreds of students at the annual 波士顿模拟联合国邀请赛 会伤害神经吗. 加上因恶劣天气而推迟的一天,再加上一年 在大流行期间进行远程竞争, 和 the recent, three-day simulation of the United Nations might have been an anxious event.

Good thing the 19 students representing pp电子平台 at BosMUN's 21st session, 由波士顿大学主办,2月4日至6日, 在比赛中找到了一张友好的脸. 当他们抵达波士顿万豪科普利酒店时, 辩论是在哪里进行的, they discovered Nashr El Auliya '20 was filling in as a committee chair.

这位校友一定是交了好运. Five pp电子 students won awards for their work during the weekend discussing international politics 和 historical topics ranging from the flu p和emic of 1918 和 climate change refugees, to the "great grape boycott" 和 the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority:

  • Jerry Chen '23 won "Honorable Mention," as Brian Lang in Baker's MBTA
  • Tvisha Devireddy '23 won "Honorable Mention," as the Republic of Ug和a in the African Union
  • 梅兰妮·卡普兰23年获得"杰出代表"奖," representing Trindad 和 Tobago in the Economic Commission for Latin America
  • Angelina Lieberman '23 won "Best Position Paper," representing Luxembourg in the EU 2050
  • Shalini Navsaria '23 won "Verbal Commendation," as a Republican Senator from Indiana in the U.S. 参议院

“学生们花了很多时间," reported Chair of the History Department 和 Model UN advisor Michele Musto of the group's preparation. “每个人都做得很好!"

El Auliya, 他的一部分, 没有参加过pp电子的模拟联合国, 尽管他曾是国际俱乐部的学生领袖 联合国日当天,他在教堂分享了自己的故事. 波士顿大学机械工程专业, who hopes to minor in material sciences 和 engineering with a concentration in aerospace engineering, volunteered to fill in at BosMUN for an ill friend at the last-minute as part of a decision to "chase new experiences,”他说.

但事实上, 会议使他回忆起过去, 因为他担任主席的委员会中有一位前室友, Hongru陈的22.

“当洪如走进我的委员会, 说实话, my impression of him was still that of the [fourth-former] that I left at Whitney, when my tenure as a prefect 和 time as a [sixth-former] ended back in 2020,奥利亚说. "Much to my joy, however, he blew me away 和 quite impressed me."

"Although I had to be impartial 和 objectively assess the delegation awards,”他补充道, 我的惊讶来自于这一进展, 的区别, “三角洲,如果你愿意的话, 所有的STEM学生. That was honestly the best part about seeing the people I used to work 和 study with — to see how much they've changed, 看看他们是怎么让pp电子碰他们的."

The group's diligent preparation certainly served them well — along with some social savvy.

"I think the most challenging part of MUN is actually not the public speaking, 就像大多数人认为的那样, but being able to accurately represent your country's needs 和 be the best delegate you can be,23年的Tvisha Devireddy分享道. “在这些会议上有很多非常有动力的人, 所以要学会为自己辩护, 以及整个国家, 自信而老练, 懂得如何妥协, 都非常重要."

并不是说这种体验都是pp电子学习和计划. 庆祝活动在会议中也发挥了作用.

Devireddy's weekend highlight came after passing her resolution on Saturday night. 这是一天艰苦演讲工作的高潮, research 和 compromise with other delegates in my committee, 看到pp电子的工作成果让人非常满意,”她说.

“这对我的团队来说也是一次亲密的经历,”她补充说, 注意的是, “就是从那时起,pp电子开始在委员会外交往."

Jerry Chen '23 had a similar experience 和 said he relished his time spent with all of the delegates from pp电子 "meeting together 和 talking about their committees 和 fun things that happened that day. ... It's fun to hear about all the different committees 和 their different approaches to h和ling crisis situations 和 passing resolutions."

A lot of people "don't realize how fun MUN can actually be," said Devireddy. "There's a huge social component to these conferences, even inside committees. We do spend a lot of time debating details about the economy or politics in our countries, but I spent just as much time getting to know my fellow delegates. And I really enjoyed meeting new people with similar interests as me." (Perhaps especially those who also attended pp电子 just a few years ago [照片摄于中心))!
