CHS’ Model UN Team Goes to Hopkins

Words: Miranda Mason

From February 7 to February 10, Centennial’s Model UN Club competed in the Johns Hopkins University Model UN Conference, with sophomores Emily Abdow and Daniel Park receiving an honorable mention.

At the event there were around 1,800 student competitors, with four countries and 26 states represented. The purpose of the conference was to simulate the environment of the United Nations with various debates, the attending students acting as delegates from countries all across the world.

Park received his honorable mention for working as a delegate of Guatemala, and Abdow won her mention for her representation in the Women’s Rights Commission for Syria.

“The conference was great especially because we could meet all the people from around the world. It was a great experience and a lot of fun,” said Park.

Fances Galante, a CHS government teacher and the Model UN advisor, said, “They were a great team this year. I’m really proud of all of them.”
