ND has a 2020 Philadelphia Model United Nations delegate winner!
The conference took place this past weekend at the Wyndham Hotel in the historic district of Philadelphia. The theme of PHILMUN 2020 was Equitable Globalization. Model UN provides students with a platform to not only discuss a variety of global issues, but also come together to create innovative solutions to problems that may not get adequate media attention in our Western society. PhilMUN 2020 pushed its students to dive deep into topics, ranging from the Protection of Economic Rights of Rural Women to Drafting the Asia Pacific Security Treaty, to diplomatically addressing the varying facets of such intricate issues while considering the key actors involved.
Gabi Morabito ‘20, a seasoned Model UN veteran, brought home a big win for ND by receiving the Best Delegate Award for the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues representing the country of Mexico! Not only did Gabi win big this weekend, but she was also the sole-executive board member of the club who worked tirelessly to run the meetings, and help her teammates to write papers and learn debate procedures all year long.
We are very proud of Gabi and the entire delegation representing Notre Dame. Also, many thanks to our Model UN moderators including Mrs. Bannon, Mrs. Wroblewski and Ms. Ashe.
