Top 3 Reasons Senior High School Students Should Participate in Model United Nations

Top 3 Reasons Senior High School Students Should Participate in Model United Nations

Upon applying for Ateneo de Manila University, we were asked to write about a significant experience that has helped us define ourselves as a person. It took me a lot of days pondering on what made an impact in my high school years.

Then, it hit me. In my junior year of high school, I joined Model United Nations (MUN) and it has been one of the best decisions I have made. Over the course of two years, I have witnessed growth and improvement in myself. I was given a platform to showcase my passions in international relations, public speaking, and governance.

Here are just some of the top reasons you should join Model United Nations.

Exposure to global affairs

In this day and age, being aware of issues in society is more important than ever. We are the next generation of CEOs, teachers, government officials, doctors — the next generation of problem solvers.

It’s crucial to know how prevalent issues in the different parts of the world affect our problems in the locally. MUN has allowed me to learn how other countries have solved several issues and crises. This experience helped me understand how this can be applied to my own country.
