Dictatorships were toppled. Wind farms were subsidized. Transnational Corporations were regulated. Oh, and our very own Matt Coffin won Best Delegate for his work on the South Sudanese Security Council. Coffin won the award for his cogent, clearly stated points and willingness to work as a team-player.
First year, Amani Natson, reflects on the competition:
“Going to Model United Nations was something that I was very skeptical about at first. When we arrived at Phillips Exeter, one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the country, I was a nervous wreck: my palms were very clammy, and I could feel my temperature slowly rising. Once I entered the room with my council and other delegates, though, we began discussing our topic right away . I sat and observed as I watched the delegates debate back and on forth on the militarization of the Arctic. It was so much fun—I can’t wait for our next event.”
