Martlets Take Leadership Roles at In-Person Model U.N. Conference

More than 30 Westminster students headed into Hartford Dec. 3 for a two-day Connecticut World Affairs Council (CTWAC) Model U.N. Conference, which hosted 650 students at Dunkin’ Donuts Park.
This was the first time Westminster Model U.N. delegates were able to participate in person for a conference since January 2020. This provided the opportunity for veteran club members to climb back in the saddle of debate and discussion. Many of the delegates were new to the program, and this was their first experience with Model U.N. at Westminster. 
The CTWAC went to great lengths to make sure the conference happened in person, securing a last-minute venue when the University of Hartford pulled out. The Martlets couldn’t have been more appreciative of this chance to do Model U.N. live. Their enthusiasm for the experience was overwhelming, with many of them taking leadership roles in their committees and practicing their public speaking skills. As always, they also made new friends with delegates from schools in the region and appreciated the trips off campus. 
Two Westminster Sixth Formers, Qifei Min and Gabby Palmowska, were chosen to be moderators for their respective committees. This involved training sessions before the conference in order to perfect Model U.N. protocols. Both Min and Gabby worked tirelessly in their committees to manage the debate and promote healthy discussion. 
The Model U.N. club looks forward to its next opportunity, which will be a virtual conference at Yale in January.
