RBK Students Participate In Ymun At Yale University, USAVishnu Balaji (IBDP Student) | 19th November, 2015 Back to Blog
Students from RBKIA went for an international Model United Nations (MUN) conference to Yale University in Connecticut, USA from 22-25 January, 2015 along with our DP Coordinator, Ms. Kinnari. The experience was truly an amazing one. Furthermore, the trip encompassed 3 days in Washington DC and 3 days in New York City. Even though it was cold, we toured the Smithsonian Museums of Air & Space and the National Museum of Natural History. The museums were truly educative and there was a lot of new information we learned. We also toured the US Capitol, which was wonderful as we learnt a lot of American History. Even though there was leisure time in between, we went to the Arlington National Cemetery, where John F Kennedy’s grave lies. In New York, we went to the UN Headquarters. It was truly spectacular to see the operations of the United Nations, especially prior to attending an MUN. We then saw the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island and went for a tour of New York called Cityscapes where we saw the 9/11 Memorial, Wall Street, Trinity Church and Battery Park. We then proceeded to Yale University for the Model UN Conference. My committee was SOCHUM and my topic was Minority and Refugee Rights. It was truly heartening to learn so much about world affairs through preparation for the MUN and at the end, all the hard work paid off in the MUN. It was the perfect end to 10 enjoyable days in the United States.
