Since 9th grade, I have participated in almost 20 Model United Nations conferences, both national and international, taking roles of a delegate and a chairperson. I remember my first ever conference was one of the biggest ones in the world, which was THIMUN Qatar. I was in a council consisting of 98 delegates, and I was the youngest. As they were asking if anyone wanted to speak, I unknowingly raised my placard and was chosen. Debating the topic of the Palestinian question, I got up and spoke about my assigned country, Iraq’s, view on this issue. Since then, I have achieved numerous awards labeled best speaker, most diplomatic, and best delegate. As the years continues and my passion rapidly increased, I planned and initiated my school’s first ever MUN conference, being chosen for the role of Secretary General. Whilst planning this conference, I learned the value of leadership, collaboration, and hard work. These characteristics are what I believe will make me a balanced, principled, and judicious lawyer; one I hope to be.
