Awsaj Academy’s Areej AlKaabi talks about the power of MUN

I still remember that day when my friend came to me and told me to join a class called MUN. They said it would help me be a better student so I said yes. I still remember taking the signature paper to my beloved teachers for their signatures. Eventually, the real day came when I went to my first conference ever, and I was scared. I was confused, shy, and unsure what was happening. In the conference room I was sitting away from people to avoid speaking to them because I didn’t know what they were talking about. It seemed like they were talking about a serious issue and I was talking about how iPhones were awesome.

On that day I regretted my decision to join MUN, and I was thinking of quitting, but something in my head told me to stay. Even though the whole committee laughed at me and I was embarrassed, that tough situation built my confidence. Year after year with the help of Mrs. Machicek, Mr. Arduser, my mother and father things got easier and I understood more and more what was happening. Now I love MUN because I can debate with people, but in a professional and appropriate way. Three years later I am able to answer any question, teach others about MUN procedures, and chair committees.

It is true that MUN separated me from some of my friends, but trust me, it’s fine because I made a good choice. People ask me “Are you serious? You go to do school work on the weekends?” Today, to these people, I would like to say yes, I am glad I gave up my weekends so I can be where I am as a student today.  MUN helped me with public speaking, leadership skills and built in me a level of responsibility I did not have before.

I have been to Ireland and spoke to a room filled with 600 people, I am a captain of the Awsaj MUN team, I have been a main submitter on a resolution that passed, I have been an ambassador, and I have been a committee chair at MSMUN-Q. MUN helped me build a strength and confidence I never knew I had. At my first conference I couldn’t speak or stand in front of 20 people, but today as you all can see,  I can do anything. I am not the old Areej; today I am not scared, not shy, not confused, I am very sure of what I am saying and full of confidence. MUN gave me many opportunities to try and I honor all of them. I believe for every problem there must be a solution, well, except maybe for algebra.

The secret to success is patience. There are hard days that might make you want to quit, but wait because you don’t know what is waiting for you in the future. You don’t know what is behind a locked door. MUN unlocked the door to my future. Thank you

Middle School MUN Club visit to the Embassy of Peru


On Monday May 1st the Middle School MUN Club of Qatar Academy Doha had the unique opportunity to visit the Embassy of Peru here in Doha. Our group consisted of Middle School MUN students, along with a number of Senior MUN students from the Executive Team. We were warmly welcomed at the Peruvian Embassy by the Deputy Chief of Mission, Mr. Ruben Espinoza. He shared with us a great amount of information about the country itself (did you know tomatoes originate from Peru?) as well as an insight in the work of a diplomat in general, and more specifically the work of the Peruvian Embassy in Doha. Mr. Espinoza gave plenty of opportunity to ask questions in more detail about matters that will be of value for our upcoming MUN conference. A big thank you to Mr. Espinoza and the Embassy of Peru for giving up their time and welcoming us!

Agenda for THIMUN Qatar 2018 Announced

THIMUN Qatar is pleased to announce its 2018 conference agenda.The theme of THIMUN Qatar 2018 is Sustainable Development Goal 5-Gender Equality and Empowerment for Women and Girls. All committees have one issue that ties to the conference theme.

THIMUN Qatar is also proud to support the work of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and to incorporate many UNODC mandate issues into our 2018 Conference. Mandate topics are noted with an asterisk (*).

The art of topic selection is fairly specific. All topics must be current, under discussion at the United Nations, and linked directly to UN sources. (The Student Officer Background Reports will help guide delegates to those resources.). Each Committee/Commission has one topic related to the conference theme, one to a specific region or country, and two that more broadly relate to the specific committee. UNODC mandates have been spread widely into the conference agenda, and in some cases have been selected to overlap with the conference theme. Again, Student Officer Reports will link UNODC mandate and materials developed through their Education 4 Justice (E4J) initiative back to the topic and shared so that delegates will have the best and most up to date materials available for their research.

Note that Arabic and French committees had been expanded for 2018, and will run parallel committees to their GA3 and HRC 1 English counterparts.  This year THIMUN Qatar will also reintroduce the Advisory Panel Question (APQ), which is a UNODC-themed panel focusing on Crime and Gender. The APQ President will share their findings with the UNODC through a joint communique at the end of the conference.

All background reports will be linked to the website on/around October 31.

New Conference Launch in Kinshasa

Submitted by TASOK MUN Director, Colette Chalier

Press Team

If you see students all dressed up today… it’s because they are practicing to become delegates for Model United Nations!

We are pleased to let you know about our up-coming conference, called KINMUN. This is the first ever MUN conference in Kinshasa, hosted by TASOK. It is being organized by the traveling MUN team who recently returned from Qatar, with support from MUN advisors/directors. Our Press Team is led by Alina Ali Rawji, an experienced Press Corps member at conferences in both Nairobi and Doha.

Our advanced MUN students “buddied” with the newer students. We are welcoming a delegation of 49 students from Jewels International School, and a delegation of 13 students from the American International School in Brazzaville. The conference will take place at TASOK:

– Friday, March 24 (6:00 – 8:30 pm)
– Saturday, March 25 (8:00 – 4:30 pm)

Directors get their debate on!

The Directors Training Institute is a program that is designed to aid the MUN directors when supporting their student delegates. MUN directors often have a huge burden when advising their students as they often have no experience in MUN themselves. Many directors have to learn through trial and error. This is difficult especially since many of the students often have little experience as well. Therefore, Best Delegate founder Ryan Villanueva developed The Directors Training Institute for both new and experienced directors which take place during the conference.

DTI-Debate

From interviewing Ryan Villanueva, I have obtained a closer look into the program. Mr. Villanueva really enjoys visiting Qatar. This is his 9th time in Doha, and his 3rd time at the THIMUN Qatar conference. Mr. Villanueva believes that the students are wonderful, however he particularly enjoys working with the teachers and helping them understand Model UN so they can pass their knowledge down to the students. Mr. Villanueva prepares for the program by “thinking about the students and teachers [he] will meet at the conference, and thinking about how [he] can be helpful and make valuable contributions to the conference”. Since the program is for teachers, Mr. Villanueva focuses on the teachers he will work with within the Directors Institute. He tries to anticipate the MUN experience of the teachers and what challenges the their respective MUN programs may be facing, and thus prepares the material accordingly. Lastly, he thinks about how he can bring out the best in every interaction with every student and every teacher he will work with at THIMUN Qatar.

 

The program is broken into two levels. The Level 1 program is for new directors and features lessons to help new delegates learn how to research, gain confidence in public speaking skills, resolution writing ability, and other procedures in preparing for MUN conferences. The Level 2 program is for more experienced directors. It features lessons on the specifics of how MUN is similar and different to the real UN, and how to develop student leadership when managing MUN clubs and hosting MUN conferences.

“I feel more confident and prepared to help develop my school’s MUN program.” –Keith Snider

 

“The institute left me feeling confident that I could run my MUN club successfully.” –Christine Fonseka

 

“It was evident that the participants who prepared were much more successful, which made the debate more meaningful for them. It was a suitable exam that accurately assessed the knowledge required to be a successful MUN advisor!” –Shannon La Nou

 

TQ Heroes: Tariq Al Suwaidi

The TQ Heroes series is highlighting the work of the special individuals and organizations that work tirelessly behind the scenes to make THIMUN Qatar events happen. One very special individual is Tariq Al Suwaidi, Government Affairs Manager at Qatar Foundation, who has worked in his current position for nine years.  If you have been the beneficiary of a conference visa, Mr Al Suwaidi is likely the person who made that happen. Visa support is one of our office’s most important services to international schools, and Mr Al Suwaidi is a very pivotal person in allowing THIMUN Qatar to provide this service. We posed a few questions to this TQ hero:

 What specific role have you played in supporting the THIMUN Qatar office/program? 

My job has been to ensure success of this large important event by ensuring that visa arrangements are handled smoothly and creates a good impression which reflects well on the Foundation.                           

Is there anything about your current job that you are proud of and enjoy doing?

I have always felt well supported by management.  A lot of people know my name. I provide guidance to QF & Education city employees and support the Management

Tell us something about yourself and what motivates you in your work?

I manage the Government Affairs Department and its functionaries and ensure professional support to and process QF’s transactions through governmental authorities and embassies. Every day you have a puzzle that you must solve by the end of the day;  the work is challenging and you constantly improve yourself and learn  something new all the time.

Mr Al Suwaidi has never been to a THIMUN Qatar event, although he would like to. We hope that he will consider attending THIMUN Qatar 2017, and meet some of the many students who have directly benefited from his hard work and dedication. The TQ office calls him ‘the dream maker’, and many of our guests would agree.

Mr Al Suwaid, we salute you and your contributions to THIMUN Qatar each and every year! You truly are a TQ hero!!!

 

An Interview with THIMUN co-chair Alain Meidinger

by Rayan El Amine

Alan Meidinger is currently acting as the co-chair in THIMUN Foundation. His passion and consistent participation in conferences around the world have put him in quite the unique position. His perspective into a conference such as QLC may be unmatched. Speaking on his role in THIMUN Foundation, as well as some moments from QLC that resonate with him, he is providing incredible insight into this conference.

  1.       Tell us a little about your role within THIMUN Foundation

I am of the 2 co-chairs of the THIMUN Foundation. The first term was from 2012-2016. I am starting my second term with Fran Laughlin, my co-chair. My role, I should write our role, with the help of the other Board members and the THIMUN Office is to organise MUN conferences in The Hague, Singapore and Montevideo. The organisational aspects include finding a theme to these conferences, as well as writing the issues on their agenda. Personally, I am in charge of the Tuesday Cinema Evening in The Hague and the World Photo Exhibition [2nd edition in 2017]. Assessing MUN conferences [for myself in English and in French. I did two in Spanish as well], organising workshops for new MUN directors. Thinking of the future of the MUN programme. Which parts of the world should we outreach? How to make MUN a real and better platform for High School students? How also to make the MUN conferences closer to the real UN?

  1.       How many QLCs have you attended?

I have attended two QLCs. 2012 and 2013. I checked. One led by Cameron Janzen, one by Lisa Martin. Both of them were and are our THIMUN representatives in the Middle East.

  1.       What is your most memorable QLC moment?

Two things I do remember the most from these two QLCs were the exchange of knowledge from people, young and less young, experienced in their own field and wanting to share their experience with others during these three amazing days. I also remember especially a young Palestinian talking about her daily life in Israel. She gave us a message of tolerance and hope.

  1.       Why are events like the QLC important to the THIMUN Foundation?

In my opinion, QLCs are a fundamental part of the outreach programme of the THIMUN Foundation. Let me give you an example. Thanks to QLC 2016, Francophone/French students from the Middle East will be present. With the help, of Lisa Martin, and Gaspard Launet, teacher at Lycée français Bonaparte in Doha, we are going to train these students and organise for them a mock debate. The final aim is to prepare them for THIMUN Qatar 2017 where, for the first time, a French forum will be held.

Furthermore, in a world where everyone seems to be connected by Internet, where skyping might be the new way of communicate, coming to Doha allows all the participants to meet, exchange in a formal way but also in an informal way.

  1.       Is there anything in particular you are looking forward to at THIS QLC?

I am looking forward to meeting old friends from Doha and people I know from other places such as the Netherlands, present at QLC 2016, to attending as much workshops as possible such as the ones of the ambassadors of Sweden and the Netherlands in Doha, of Matthew French or of Winand Staring, and finally to being captivated by the new generation of leaders of the world, especially from the Middle East.

  1.       Quick Answer: your favorite place to eat or favorite food in while in Qatar?

I didn’t go to too many places, but I do like the Italian restaurant of the Four Seasons, the Syrian restaurant where Cameron Janzen brought me in the Souk. I love Lebanese mezze.

 

Meet THIMUN Qatar’s New Public Affairs Officers

 

Ahmed and Fatima for blogThe TQ office is thrilled to have our Public Affairs Officers in place for 2016-17. These are unique positions, as they are year long appointments to assist the TQ office with networking and promoting MUN in the region at a student to student level. The Public Affairs positions were launched last year to test the effectiveness of this kind of outreach, and with a dramatic increase in the kinds and types of stories that we covered in our blog, the experiment proved to be a success.  This years officers are both students at The American School of Doha. Ahmed El Namourey (Chief Officer) and Fatima Hussain (Deputy) will together be conducting outreach to MUN clubs and THIMUN-affiliated conferences in the region, soliciting news stories and conference promotions, and sharing them on the TQ Community blog, the Olive Branch, and other social media outlets.

If you would like to share the work of your MUN club, your preparations for THIMUN, your school’s MUN conference, or just an interesting observation or reflection on Model UN, be in touch with Ahmed and Fatima.  Directors can also be in touch with the Officers directly if they have further questions.

For more information or to share a story or idea please contact Ahmed El Namourey (a7med_namoury@hotmail.com) or Fatima Hussain (17fhussain@asd.edu.qa)

Discovering the Power of Globalised Patriotism: Afghanistan

By: Irene Ann Promodh Deputy Secretary General, OMUN

As delegates streamed into the room, our adrenaline pumped higher as the moment we had been waiting for was finally manifesting itself in reality after months of preparation, brainstorming and planning. What had flickered within me as a subtle idea of creating international patriotism and proactivity on an online platform, had now combusted into a flame capable of setting our world’s youth on fire.

Members of HELA (Hope for Education and Leadership in Afghanistan) had produced the finest communiqué that our team had ever seen: it was not a series of empty-cored clauses formulated for the purpose of gaining credit on the Delegate Recognition System. Instead, the sincere concern of HELA’s members for their nation’s welfare in tackling socio-economic stagnation radiated through every clause, thus causing every delegate to vote in its favour in an overwhelmingly positive response that justified every goal/aim of Afghanistan listed in the communiqué, in addition to the means by which these ends could be attained. Everyone was silenced by the Afghan national anthem (Milli Surood) that played through speakers in India, UAE, China, Israel, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Australia, Korea, Taiwan, and of course, Afghanistan, before HELA’s first speech resounded through the boundless, global room.

Ten different cultures, one single purpose: to effectively develop strategies to tackle Afghanistan’s current social and economic crisis as a result of women’s suppression, lack of education, Taliban forces, oppressive government and poor security measures. Delegates and moderators alike raised interesting questions about the reason behind women’s suppression and political fragility; after more than two hours of heated discussion, we arrived at a general consensus that the lack of formal government control due to bribing policies, loose/volatile law enforcement measures, illegal trading, mismanagement of natural resources due to insufficient transparency in mining, inadequate training of teachers and security forces, excessive state control and poor border control had resulted in the country’s socioeconomic decline over the past decade. Although Afghan soil was once treasured due to its high content of fuel and non-fuel minerals, today, the country has been debased and shamed with failure, controversy, socioeconomic stagnation and soaring death rates as a result of terrorist attacks and related causes. As a result, Taliban’s rise to power due to compromised security measures and information failure have caused the country to hang dangerously in the balance.

Although our International Affairs Dialogue cannot, in effect, revert the damage incurred by Afghanistan over the years, it has the potential to spark a hope for change, not only among the youth of a single nation, but also among youth worldwide. As the next generation, we have the responsibility of paving the road for a shift in socioeconomic conditions of countries helplessly on the verge of destruction; this is the sole purpose of our International Affairs Dialogue debates. They are not based on public speaking skills or rhetoric expertise; instead, we aim to spur a passion within delegates to see beyond personal benefit, to move into the next paradigm of cultural unity and globalised patriotism devoid of racial prejudices or divides. I am grateful to the leaders of THIMUN Online MUN and my team for enabling a mere idea to turn into something so beautiful and fruitful; we look forward to reaping even greater results with our next International Affairs Dialogue.

Happy Independence Day, Afghanistan! We wish you a bright and prosperous future ahead where the scars of the past will be erased and a new light will shine through. The best is surely yet to come!

Thank You for Dublin- Our MUN Experience Over the Years

Miss Rennicks, the MUN Director at Park House English School, is remembered and thanked by her student officer team! She will be missed!

Ms. Rennicks

Miss Rennicks has been working at Park House for four years now, two of which she’s spent as director of PHESMUN. Having been in the executive team for both of those years, I can say with the utmost certainty that without her, the Model United Nations club in our school would not be what it is today. She pushed us to work our hardest to make the club the best it could be, improving organisation and quality of sessions immensely and enabling us to host seven schools at our first ever external MUN conference. Miss Rennicks has been immensely supportive of all of us whenever we’ve needed help, MUN related or otherwise. In fact, I can thank her for being so forgiving and helping me keep my sanity while juggling A levels and MUN responsibilities. This year, Miss Rennicks will be moving back to Ireland to continue her teaching career, and everyone at Park House will miss her immensely.

Below are messages from some of the former and current PHESMUN Executive Committee members bidding her farewell:

I remember going to conferences and thinking I wanna give a speech in a PHES conference one day. For me it was just a dream that I didn’t think was possible to be honest. But you made it possible for me, you’ve always pushed us to our limits and made us unleash our full potential. I can’t be more grateful you’ve been the best director anyone could ask for.
-Mousa Alwaraki, Deputy Secretary General 2015-2016l

It has been an honour to work with Miss Rennicks this year. Her dedication and hard work has been noticed by everyone at Park House, and I speak on behalf of everyone when I say that she loyal. She smart. She grateful. And I appreciate that.
-Hamza Wasim, Head of Training 2015-2016

Thank you Miss Rennicks for always helping me out with all my MUN work and inspiring me to do better. It was a privilege to have you as my director for MUN and a true pleasure working with you! I will miss you loads.
-Vidisha Hemani, Head of Communications 2015-2016

main_photo-PHESMUN outreach

Ms Rennicks has always pushed harder than anyone else, simply because she knew how much we were capable of accomplishing. During her time as director, she brought out the best qualities in every member of Park House MUN. The heights that PHESMUN has reached under tutelage often seem beyond description. She will be sorely missed and we hope that Park House will be able to maintain the incredibly high standards that were set during her time. -Sreeparna Bose, Head of Press 2015-2016

Before year 10 I didn’t see the importance of MUN, it was always something I would mock my friends about when they told me that they had afterschool, but because of how well Miss. Rennicks directed the club it inspired me to become a part of this club and one day achieve a role of responsibility, thank you Miss for your amazing support and I wish you the best for the future!
-Michael Morgan, Head of Administration 2016-2017

IMG_7699 PHESMUN Exec. Group Picture

You never really appreciate the people that are around you until they are gone. Seeing Ms. Rennicks leave after all this time is something that is hard to digest, as she’s an individual that has become my mentor, teacher and director over the past few years. But I look forward to continuing the outstanding work she has done here at Park House with the rest of the team and hoping that we’ll be able to complete even half of the work she’s committed herself to at PHESMUN.
-Sandev Ferdinando, Secretary General 2016-2017

I have never seen anyone so committed to bringing the most out of the MUN community and especially our executive team, I think the whole school appreciates everything she’s done. -Firas El Chaer, Head of Admin 2015-2016, Deputy Secretary General 2016-2017

Miss Rennicks has always been pushing us to the furthest of our abilities and creativities. When she told us she was going to leave we were all so shocked, as no one will be able to direct PHESMUN like she has. It’s our job to keep her legacy alive, and to continue making her proud.
-Hend Al Sulaiti, Deputy Secretary General 2016-2017

Miss Rennicks has always been supportive in my entire MUN journey – without her guidance and commitment, PHESMUN would not have been able to thrive the way it has over the past years. I would like to thank her for all that she has done to bring out the best in us and good luck for the future!
-Rahema Velmi, Head of Training 2016-2017

Thank you miss rennicks for continuously being there to support us whenever we needed you and always made sure that we were nothing but prepared and ready to tackle anything that came our way. I would like to thank you for all the endless opportunities you have given us to help us grow through our MUN journey and end up as a part of the PHESMUN executive team
-Elissa Mefleh, Head of Press 2016-2017

You’ve honestly been such a great support, you kept us strong and positive all the time so I’d just like to thank you for everything you’ve done for us and for me personally, i wish you the best of luck!
-Mais Sannoufi, Deputy Head of Press 2016-2017

We can’t thank you enough for the motivation and support you’ve given us as MUN director, and these messages are a testament to that. From this year’s and next year’s executive team, we wish you all the best!
-Christopher Nasrawi, Secretary General 2015-2016
