Egzone Sulejmani of Flushing was among 21 students who represented SUNY Oneonta at the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City from March 22-26.
Sulejmani helped the students prepare for the conference and accompanied the group as a teaching assistant in the Model UN course. Sulejmani is majoring in Political Science at SUNY Oneonta.
Over the course of two conferences, National Model United Nations-New York brings together more than 5,000 university students from around the world to discuss global concerns in a real-world context.
Students prepared for the simulation by learning about Oman and Turkey’s international and domestic politics, contemporary issues, and the United Nations’ committee system and operating procedures. Once at the conference, they debated proposals put forth to address these issues from the perspective of diplomats of their assigned country.
