UGMUN 2024

On the 23rd and 24th of March, I was privileged to be part of the 18 strong delegations from Taibah to the Uganda Modal United Nations Conference (UGMUN) at the International School of Uganda. Clad in business class formality, each of us had picked a country to represent. I for one, represented Ethiopia discussing “Aquavation-Global Water Harmony.”


I must admit I encountered a firebrand of delegates, many vying for the prize of “Best Delegate.” I learnt that diplomacy is not an easy thing when I had fended off a barrage of questions concerning an amendment I proposed. Thankfully, it went through and by the end of day one, I had made a resounding impact into day two where we all altered an emergency meeting that was not short of drama (a mirror of diplomacy).


As the event came to an end, we were called upon to attend the closing ceremony (losing formalities were pronounced with profound) speeches from a climate activist and His Excellency Ambassador Jan Sadek. The chair of the conference then began to read out the winners. Honestly, my heart rate spiked till I was also called upon to receive the best delegate award having sat on the general assembly by none other than Ambassador Jan Sadek of the EU in Uganda.


Pulling off such a feat was impossible without the aid of my parents, teachers, friends and the Taibah Debate Society. I also thank the teachers, especially Tr. Leticia, Tr. Stuart and Tr. Pamela plus my fellow delegate at UGMUN. Ultimately, I wholeheartedly and humbly thank God for such a grand opportunity.
