Paideia’s First-Ever Junior High Model UN Conference

On Saturday, December 9, eleven Junior High students participated in the Junior High's first-ever Model United Nations Conference at Atlanta International School. Representing Germany, Haiti, India, Nigeria and Switzerland, they discussed topics like sustainable energy, brain drain prevention, species protection and the preservation of historical sites. Joining over 150 delegates from seven metro Atlanta schools, students had the opportunity to interact with Cesar Guedes, an experienced freelance international consultant, who joined virtually from Hanoi, Vietnam. With a thirty-year career as a Senior UN official, Guedes offered valuable insights to our students. 

Congratulations to our delegates: Alex Bradley, Clara Bryson, Nick Sheely, Sasha Monem, Elisaveta Pasetti, Sophie Lee, Anna Martin, Sid Williamson, Nishka Nagpal, Zakir Mamdani, and Penelope Moore, for their impressive performances and contributions to the conference!
