Flatbush Students Participate in Yeshiva University National Model United Nations

On Sunday February 8, 2015, eleven students left for the Yeshivah University National Model United Nations competition. The opening ceremonies set the stage for the upcoming two days filled with fun, debate, and resolutions. The Secretary General, Aaron Portman, stressed the importance of voice and using words to influence change. In such a diverse world, it is important for people with different opinions and beliefs to learn the art of working together. As the eleven of us were split up into our various committee rooms, ranging from the committees of the World Food Program to the Security Council, representing either Jordan or Iraq, we were reminded that as the next generation of leaders in our communities and the country, it is incumbent upon us to use our power of speech in combination with our actions to create a better future for the Jewish people. 
Congratulations to Robert Harary for winning Best Delegate and Rashelle Gersh for winning Honorable Mention. A special thank you to Mr. Lazar, our faculty advisor, for spending so much time preparing us for the competition. ~Rashelle Gersh, Class of 2015
