Model UN heads to Baltimore
Model UN heads to Baltimore
Over the weekend of February 9-11, 2018, Mrs. Rinkacs and Ms. Doyle took sixteen members of the Model United Nations Club to the Johns Hopkins Model United Nations Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. Representing the country of Iran, students participated in problem solving efforts relating to Disarmament, Climate Change, Sustainability, Terrorism, Women's Rights, Disease control, and many more. Several of our students participated in specific historic crisis situations including the League of Nations, Cuban Missile Crisis, Iranian Revolution, and Cold War. We had a student report on the conference as a member of the Press Corps, and even participated in special midnight crisis meetings! Outside of the hard work accomplished during their committee sessions, the girls had a great time exploring the city of Baltimore!

Isabelle Schmeler '18 shared her experience on this year's trip:
"The trip was unlike any of the other national conferences we've attended over the past couple years because of how detailed and rigorous our committee sessions were. I had the pleasure of playing the role of representative in the Iranian Revolutionary Government of 1979. Not only did committee sessions keep us on our toes, but running around Baltimore and meeting students from all over the country was a truly unforgettable experience."
