CAS: An Opportunity to demonstrate Leadership

In 2016, when I was in grade 11 (IB DP1), I was part of the leadership team for the organisation of the QAIS Inspire Project. Looking back at it, I cannot help but think of the amazing opportunity it was for me to demonstrate my leadership skills. My original thoughts of the events were to […]

Rome Memories

I had great trip in Rome. The MMUN conference was a new experience for me. I had the opportunity to work with people that I did not know, and to listen to different ideas. I liked this because this means I worked with different people and that I listened to different ideas. I thought giving […]

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 […]
