The United Nations, commonly referred to as the UN, is an intergovernmental association dedicated to dealing with world affairs.

The school’s new Model UN Club, imitates what it would be like to be a diplomat for a country in the UN.

“I started Model United Nations because I believe that teenagers these days, don’t really have an idea of what’s going on outside of our country,” President Amina Syeda said. “And we, as speaking for myself, I didn’t really know like let’s say Australia. You don’t hear stuff from Australia, and you don’t hear a lot of stuff from Africa, you only hear stuff from like major superpowers.”

Students will choose a country, research it and then present their country in mock meetings as if they are a national official.

“Ok so Model United Nations is a stimulus of the actual United Nations where students will role play different countries in which they are supposed to be research on and act as delegates for the country,” Syeda said.

The club is holding competitions within the team this year, and is hoping to compete with other schools and programs at the YMCA starting next year.

The second meeting will be after school Thursday in room C138.
