Thirteen students from Regent’s University London represented Egypt in thirteen committees at the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City last week.
After several days of deep discussion with 2,700 students from all around the world on topics ranging from disarmament and development to peace-building in Central African Republic, the students emerged exhausted and happy after passing many of the resolutions that they spent four intense days negotiating.
Additionally, two students received position paper awards: Gilmar Queiros for UNHCR and Natasha Greenwood for UNAIDS. Gilmar also received the position of Chair in UNHCR.
The ultimate achievement, however, was the Honourable Mention Team Award, which indicates that our students were high performers in each and every single committee. Regent's is incredibly proud of this group of remarkable students, as not only were they effective ambassadors for the University, but they proved themselves as leaders and global citizens.
