During the MSU Model United Nations Conference from March 17 to March 19, the DHS Model UN team once more proved their outstanding qualities in representing countries from all around the globe political debate style.
“It was extremely fun, a lot of the topics they had were very interesting, compared with the Oakland tournament the MSU tournament had a much bigger variety of topics to choose from,” junior Abraham Yum said.
During the competition in which over 900 students from Michigan and all of the US competed, several DHS debaters earned recognitions. Senior Sagar Kamaraju and freshmen Lillian Pressnell won a Verbal Recognition, junior Noah Nichols won Outstanding Delegate and junior Kevin Kraef won Best Delegate.
For the Model UN members the competitions grant a chance to extend their skills in representing and collaborating and it also gives them great knowledge about real political discussions.
“I like that everybody gets to speak but you are speaking on behalf of someone else so you get to learn about cultural events around the world and interact with a bunch of different people, which is a really interesting experience,” sophomore Isabel Chaput said.
