I have spent the majority of my senior year thus far working on planning out a Model UN conference. In my role, I am in charge of hiring staff, working on topic selection, reviewing backgrounder guides, scheduling staff training, and overseeing the staff during the conference. Naturally it has meant that I have spent a lot of time getting to know other students from schools in Vancouver and beyond and has been a great way to meet interesting people with similar passions. One of the most challenging aspects of this position is dealing with changes, deadlines, and people dropping out. I guess it has given me a more realistic understanding of how organizations cam run.
