The International Relations Club under the leadership of its co-Presidents, Daniel Xu and Frank Anstett and Prep moderators, Ms. Rosita Whitman and Mr. Dacque Tirado, led the first international simulation on Hemispheric Affairs held at Georgetown Prep, which focused on vital issues and challenges confronting this hemisphere. Supporting Prep in this admirable effort includes St. John’s School from Puerto Rico and the Wakefield and Foxcroft Schools from Virginia. This is a unique opportunity for young leaders from across the U.S. and abroad to be part of this exciting two-day experience of diplomacy, consensus, compromise, debate, negotiation and networking on the most pressing issues facing not only the hemisphere but the global community.

The students have learned to draft proposals and policies, debate their resolutions and dialogue on the current and disturbing affairs of our world. The first day culminated in the surprising Tango presentation by Tango maestro, Mr. Luis Angel from Argentina. After the talk on the historical evolution of tango, Luis guided the reluctant students into the most graceful basic classic tango steps. Much to their surprise, the young men partnered with the charming ladies to perform the Tango! The finale was the exhibition of the amazingly graceful and intricate Tango performed by Luis Angel and Ms. Liang to accompaniment of the famed “ La Cumparsita.” We continue to debate earnestly and conscientiously and share our differences and common goals, not to change but advance our own footprints on this planet.
