The Model United Nations is where we act out what the actual United Nations does. We are given a prompt to solve and we then create a policy paper and then our resolution through it as to how we believe it should be solved. Then the chairs choose which ones would be discussed and then amended and adopted. They talk about climate change, refugee crisis, and etc. I played the roll of the DR of Congo, perspective on whichever crisis we were discussing. For instance, the United Nations had worked on the issue Climate Change and which all but the United States signed Paris climate change plan. In which, a lot of people have been following by.
I feel like I had strengthen my skills in my writing and making it sounding more professional and better written compared to some of the other things I have written but I do feel like I need to work better on my public speaking skills as I had began to stutter and stumble over my words when reading my speech at the MUN. Then, when asked if I was okay taking comments I had freaked out some and quickly said no, taking my seat. But, my writing had became more professional sounding out of this experience even though I had to have help from more one person editing it and making sure it makes sense. For example, in my speech I had gone over it with my mom and she told me how to rephrase things, what would sound better, and if something needs further explanation. From this, my work had been better then what I was suspecting it to be.
From this project, I had learned that even if it feels like nothing is being done, but the UN is taking charge and figuring what to do and the best way to do it. I didn't even know that there was people who were trying to keep peace, so in away it is relieving knowing someone out there is trying to fix what is going on, or attempt to make it better then what it is at the moment. Also, through the perspective of a country with mass chaos and little amounts of money, I see that the country has a lot of ideas and cares but it seems that they are also struggling to maintain a financial safe place for their own people. For example. they have great ideas for climate change but have to focus on the fact that people are being killed a lot within their own place and having to deal with major lord wars as well. If they knew how to have a more peaceful environment then they could work on things that are more global.
