Hello to all the new and returning members of Carleton’s UNS. My name is Michael and I am more than happy to be apart of the UNS Mentorship Program team. I’m from Vancouver BC and was a swim coach this past summer. This will be my second year at Carleton and in the UNS. For me joining Model U.N was a great way to broaden my vision and perspective towards major issues around the world. This, in turn, helps me better analyze and create better ideas whether that’s for a resolution or a term paper. Basically a more fun tutoring session about foreign affairs and diplomacy.
Further, another one of the best aspects about the UNS is the community. The most memorable moment for me last year was when we all went to Harvard MUN. I was still new during this time, but everyone treated me as if I joined the same time they did. Also, anytime I needed to ask a question there was somebody always willing to point you in the right direction.
If you ever need to contact me, I am just a Facebook message away! I hope this year goes well for all of you, – MJS
