Each person in the group made it easy to collaborate with, overall making it easier and helping me branch out a bit.Model United Nations, otherwise known as the MUN, is a simulation in which students can be engaged and learn a deeper understanding of current world issues. To where students are introduced to negotiation, decision making, and international relations. We began this project by being selected to become a delegate of a specific country and researched our global issues, which were refugees and climate change. To where we would represent that country and prepare policy papers, resolutions to support the needs and arguments about the current situations. Being the delegate of the Lebanese Republic, I was then able to research the hardships the citizen's witness, and what solutions that could be done to help the livelihood of the people. Finally, we had a professional MUN conference at the Fort Lewis College, which we discussed two resolutions to find a solution to help worldwide.
Through this project, I strengthened multiple skills during this project. As a person, I feel like I strengthen my collaborative skills. Normally for projects, I would partner with people I'm most comfortable with. After the MUN conference, I pushed myself to work with people I don't normally talk to on a day-to-day basis. Another growth/strength I had was academically. When starting this project. I didn't have much knowledge on global issues and on the United Nations. I never really paid attention to what was particularly going on worldwide. When I was researching the Syrian Refugee Crisis and Climate Change, I learned how much it affects livestock and the lives of the people. Listening to different views that each country had about the situations. In the end, I found this project very engaging and mind-boggling on current issues that we face today.
