NEW YORK (FinalCall.com) – Seventeen high school students representing Muhammad’s University of Islam in Chicago attended the 2015 National High School Model United Nations Conference, headquartered at the Hilton Hotel in Manhattan March 4-7.
The International Model United Nations Association, the sponsoring parent-body of the conference describes it as “three days of world-class problem solving.”
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a message to the 3,800 students from 25 nations said, The three days help in “developing those diplomatic skills that will help you as you prepare for leadership in the future. Such skills have never been more important.”
“This was historical—hasn’t really sunk in yet—how important it was for our students to go to New York and compete with other great young minds from all over the world,” Student Interim-Director of the Muhammad University of Islam Jason Karriem told The Final Call.
