M.U.I. 2015 Model United Nations Team
Seventeen M.U.I. students were selected to participate in the 2015 National High School United Nations Conference in New York City. This 4-day conference brought together 38,000 students from 25 countries from around the world. Each school delegation was charged with the responsibility of representing a country about which they had to dialogue and debate, regarding some of the world’s most critical issues. The issues debated included human trafficking, global terrorism, and sustainable development in sub-saharan, just to name a few. Our students represented the great country of Haiti. Using the teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as the foundation and primary basis of their research and position, our students were able to identify the root of world problems, represent their position with strength and conviction, while standing on the principle of justice. Our students wrote and were instrumental in passing many resolutions at the conclusion of this mock simulation. These seventeen students had the opportunity to experience first-hand, that with the Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as taught to us by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, they are being well prepared and made very capable of being future leaders of a whole new world.
