MKB Students Attend Global Elementary Model United Nations Conference
Published: Tue, May 15, 2018, 08:15AM CDT

Under the leadership of Mrs. Carlsson, Gifted and Talented Interventions (GTi) Specialist for Mockingbird, several students attended the GEMUN (Global Elementary Model United Nations) conference May 11-12. GEMUN is an organization based here in the metroplex that for 29 years has organized a model UN assembly for learners in grades 4-8. This year’s conference had approximately 350 delegates from all over Texas, a few other states, and even 2 delegations from Istanbul, Turkey. The secretariat is made up of high schoolers who run the entire conference as committee chairs and the Secretary General with adults merely silent observers.

Our Mockingbird Mavericks chose to represent the Dominican Republic. All year they worked to learn about both the functions of the UN and the issues affecting the Dominican Republic and the world. They wrote and submitted resolutions and speeches to support these resolutions. They studied the resolutions submitted by other nations in preparation for debates, caucuses, and voting. Our Ambassador, Richard, addressed the entire assembly at the Opening Ceremonies and each learner served on a different committee. It was such an amazing experience for these young leaders to try their hand at grappling with these issues and role-playing their parts while working to promote good will and cooperation among all nations. All resolutions that were passed as well as the Ambassadors’ speeches will be submitted to the real UN.

Under the leadership of Mrs. Carlsson, MKB students attending the conference were Sneha Patil, Samarth Srinivas, Stayton Slaughter, Keerthana Pari, Sai Kasiraman, Richard Chen and Aayush Shah.
