This weekend a small team of 3 students from the MDX Dubai Model UN Society competed at the American University of Sharjah Model Congress. It was a really interesting experience for the students, as this conference was a simulation of various arms of the US government.
Two of our students won top awards at the Model Congress:
Mohamed Nor (Third Year LLB) won the Top Delegate Award – Associate Justice Alito of the US Supreme Court – the top award of the conference!
Hashim Riyan (First Year Journalism and Communication) received anHonourable Mention – European Specialist Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
The students immersed themselves in the US political system and were well informed about issues ranging from the ‘Muslim’ travel ban to abortion rights and the use of surveillance on the internet.
