United nations human rights council (UNHRC)
Committee Director: Rafi Abbas
The Model United Nations class for me was one of the first extracurricular activities I've done in a long time. I never expected that I would take such a class where you would have to debate and actually do a lot of research. During my sophomore year I was finding ways to make my schedule even shorter than it already was. However, my friends were yelling at me because I didn't join the Model U.N class with them. They told me how intense the debates were and how much fun it actually is preparing for conferences and I had to find out for myself. After a few classes it was the only thing I looked forward to each day. I learned there is always somebody to guide you through hard times or any difficulties. The class helped me talk to people that I didn't know and make friends with them. I love talking to new people and make friends with them. It is very interesting to share different ways of preparing for a conference. I also learned that I love to dress up and pretend to be an ambassador of a country for a day or two. It means the world to me when I see that my resolution passed or that I had a great idea or opinion heard in front of many others in a conference setting. Model United Nations has definitely changed the way I think of different countries, look at global issues, and even the way I talk to others. I wish to take Model United Nations courses in the future and attend many other conferences.
Fun Fact: Rafi didn't give us a fun fact, so the SC Team would just like to point out- he's extremely ticklish. Tickle him for a giggle!
Assistant Director: Alima Khan
My name is Alima Khan and I have been in MUNCH for three years. This class has prepared me so much for being comfortable speaking in front of people. I've been always shy in front of crowds but since joining in my sophomore year i have been exposed to a vast array of situations whether be in the class room or at a conference. This class has been a learning experience and a fun filled journey along the way. My favorite things to do are bake and cook as well as play with my 2 year old bunny, Monster.
Fun Fact: I volunteer at my mosque every weekend teaching language and Islamic Studies.
