About

Hey everyone! We are really excited to welcome you all to the second edition of the Schoolhouse Model United Nations!

What is an MUN and Why Should You Participate?
For those who may not be familiar with MUN, it stands for Model United Nations, which is a simulation of the United Nations, with delegates taking on the role of a country’s representative to discuss and find solutions to pressing global issues. MUNs are a great opportunity to develop your public speaking, negotiation and problem-solving skills. And we’re excited to host the second edition of Schoolhouse MUN to give y’all these opportunities on the Schoolhouse.world platform!

About the Event:
The event will consist of opening and closing ceremonies, with training sessions for all delegates. There are six committees, with the details for each as follows:

United Nations Development Programme: Accelerating the creation of inclusive and sustainable industrial development
United Nations General Assembly: Discussing causes and solutions to animal extinction
United Nations Environment Programme: Analysing the progress of the Paris Climate Agreement
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation: Discussing the viability of a Common Universal Education System
United Nations Women: Economic and political empowerment of women
Food and Agricultural Organisation: Assessing the causes and consequences of unequal food distribution across landmasses and regions

The event will take place from 13th to 14th January, 2024 (Eastern Hemisphere time), with 3 committee sessions taking place everyday, each for one hour. Each delegate who attends at least half of the committee sessions will receive a participation certificate, and winners will receive certificates of excellence. The best delegates from each committee will also win Schoolhouse merchandise!

About the Tutors

Hey everyone! I am Hafsah, a high school sophomore from India, studying advanced courses well ahead of my age. I'm really passionate about anything related to maths, CS and science. In my free time, I love to read, ski, research on random topics that catch my interest, do some cooking and learn new languages. I've taken the Digital SAT, with a superscore of 1530 (750 R&W, 780 Math). I'd be happy to help out with anything related to Math (from Pre-Algebra to Calculus), Science, Computer Science or SAT Prep. Excited to be a tutor here at schoolhouse, and I look forward to seeing you in my sessions!

I'm a high school student, a junior to be specific. I am ambitious and always like to get things done (in as little time as possible too... 😂). I hate putting things off but tend to find ways to do things easier... Some may call me lazy, some may call me creative, but one thing's for sure, I love learning! (Oh... and recently tutoring!)
