The End of a Great Experience

I wrote these lines on the last day of the MMUN Rome Conference. Very similar to the first day, the last day had a closing ceremony. However, this ceremony felt different: we knew this was the end and that we may not see some of the people we had been working and learning with for […]

The Colosseum

Mr Rafael guided us to the Colosseum during our first night in Rome, after the MMUN conference. We did not go in, but we were able to walk around and experience how big it is. The day before we left, we went to the colosseum again, but this time we went during the day. Since […]

A quiet night at Vatican City

They say that the view of rome in the day and in the night is totally different. I was really impressed by the night view of St. Peter’s Square, in front of St. Peter’s Basilica,  a place where they hold masses. We went to this place twice: in the day, when we wanted to visit the […]

Confidence and Friends

Sometimes we think that we are not confident, but maybe we think like this because we do not try new things. Today I felt very confident about my opening speech, I knew that I was ready. When I went to my committee room, the Secretariat and the Rapporteurs greeted me at the door and I […]

Tuesday, April 25th was the first day of the MMUN Rome Conference. We woke up and went to breakfast. It was amazing. After the awesome breakfast, we went to the opening ceremony.

The World Food Program is a branch of the humanitarian organizations ran in the UN, the building was not huge(like gigantic skyscraper) but very professional, modern and welcoming. Even though some of […]

Rising Voices – What we have learned at the MMUN conference

When our group prepared for the MMUN conference, we’ve learned that for many students this experience marked a moment in their lives when they found their voices. We were wondering if our students would have a similar experience, but what we found out – what we’ve learned about ourselves – was a bit different. Throughout […]

The Importance of Social Skills

I came to Montessori Model United Nations in Rome along with 9 other QAIS MYP Students. At first, I did not feel so confident in MMUN; however, once we started to work in committee, following procedures, and calling motions, my confidence started to build up. As I noticed that I was able to express myself naturally […]
