MUN MOCK CONFERENCE RECAP

Representing Greece, visual junior Ana-Gabriella Thomidis uses her background on the country and her heritage to take a stance on the resolution. She was drawn in by the complimentary lunch and NHHS hour opportunity, but after attending she decided to become more involved in MUN. “I originally chose to represent Romania, but … there wasn't a lot of information about it, and my Greek heritage was easier for me to talk about,” Thomidis said. “It gives you perspective about how other countries may think and some resolutions that are passed that you don't even know happened in the UN.”

This past Thursday, the Dreyfoos chapter of Model United Nations gathered for a mock conference open to non-members. Offering free pizza and an NHHS event opportunity, MUN garnered attention from students interested in global politics who wouldn’t normally sign up for the club. Inspired by a recent United Nations resolution on international terrorism, attendees represented pre-determined countries—from France to Ecuador—and took stances based on their respective country’s values.
