Last week, the SBA Model United Nations (Model UN) club traveled to the University of Toronto to participate in the SOMA (Southern Ontario Model United Nations Assembly) conference hosted by University of Toronto Schools. Delegates learned more about International Relations within the wider community and experienced the inner workings of the United Nations by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies.
This national conference attracted students from all over Canada and created an opportunity for SBA students to network and connect. Our SBA students were divided into committees that focused on different issues within the global community, such as human rights (UNHCR), national defense, world health, economics (ECOSOC), and social sustainability (UNICEF), to name a few. Representing the countries El Salvador, Israel, Guinea and Denmark, the students did intensive research in order to portray each country’s views accurately. Delegates exercised their ability to problem-solve and work with others who may have different opinions on certain issues of global concern. Special honorable mentions within each committee include: Miguel Soriano- Best Dressed Delegate, Aidan Aird and Sebastian Melano- Funniest Delegate(s). It was a fun experience for the SBA Model UN club and they look forward to doing the conference again next year! Special thanks to Mr. Evans for supervising SBA’s Model UN and Mr. Pivato, as they made this all possible.
