In March, about thirty LFSF students traveled to New York City to participate in the National High School Model United Nations conference attracting thousands of students across the globe from Italy to Brazil. LFSF students represented Finland in these United Nations simulations, debating on a variety of topics in committees like UN Habitat or the Committee on the Status of Women (CSW). I had the opportunity to participate in a crisis committee addressing  issues within the Kutupalong Refugee Camp. A crisis committee is distinct from the regular general assembly committees as delegates must adapt to the various crisis updates that occur during sessions. As a Rohingya Refugee Activist, I adamantly defended the stateless population and was able to create an international movement bringing awareness to the oppression and discrimination faced by the Rohingya.

I was able to form connections and alliances with multiple people within my committee and particularly enjoyed the creative solutions we implemented to improve the welfare of refugees (including a partnership with Ikea to build better tents). At the end of the three day conference, I received the Award of Excellence. I am so grateful for the experience because Model UN teaches you an abundance of lessons from public speaking to creative thinking. 

I loved participating in the Model UN conference, but one of the highlights of the trip was exploring New York City. There is so much to see (and the food is amazing), and we also stayed an extra day in New York after the end of the conference to truly enjoy the city. I hope other LFSF students uncover the same passion for international debate and politics by joining the Model UN club as I have, it is truly transformative

We're thankful to Madeleine for offering us a glimpse into her experience as an LFSF MUN delegate in New York City.
The NHSMUN (National High School Model United Nations) is the largest competition of its kind in the world, and also widely considered to be the most prestigious Model UN conference for secondary school students. Each year, over 70 countries are represented, totaling approximately 5000 delegates.

🥇 The LFSF team collectively won first place in the “Research and Preparation” category and our head delegate Madeleine, was granted an “Award of Excellence”. These are impressive achievements for our team and our school, we are immensely proud of our LFSF MUN club.
