Six GP students participated in the 37th William and Mary High School Model UN Conference (WMHSMUN). Since 1987, WMHSMUN has been the premiere Model UN conference serving “as a forum to support and challenge young leaders, allowing them to discuss real-world issues in an environment forged from our core values of diplomacy, substance, and empowerment.” The students represented the nations of Sweden, Iran, Russia, and Tunisia on various committees such as the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime, the International Court of Justice, the Tunisian Constitutional Convention and the United Nations Security Council. Student participants included: Jack Sullivan ‘24, Ethan Ristu ‘24, Peter Lin ‘26, Chinasa Iheagwara ‘25, Matias Beariault ’25 and Jason Oh ’25.
Matias Beariault said, "The William and Mary Model UN conference allowed me to engage in diplomatic conversations with my fellow delegates, and with them solve the complex issues facing our globe. There is great power in discussion. One day I hope my experiences with Model UN will help me solve the problems facing my generation."
Peter Lin shared, "The Model UN at William and Mary was the first big model in my career in the International Relations Club. There were a lot of strong teams, and to be honest, I could have perform better. However, it was a valuable experience to provide insight on how to improve in future Models."
