Rene Yaroshevsky, President
“Model UN is an opportunity for students to develop their skills in public speaking, research, writing, and political science. Our MUN team is the very definition of ‘positive vibes.’ I don’t think there’s any better opportunity than at our MUN team for students of all majors at QC to get involved in issues of great importance to the whole world. This team can be the catalyst for people to change themselves and work to change the world.”
"Model UN is a great space to practice leadership, public speaking, and problem-solving. Our student-lead environment lends itself to discussions that are fun and engaging, but that also expand our knowledge of global politics."
Renahn Barcia, Treasurer
"Model UN is a space to better understand and safely discuss political issues and positions around the globe. It serves as great practice for cooperating with groups of people to create plans that are representative of the ideas from all members involved. As well as practice for presenting those ideas, strengthening public speaking skills."
"MUN is a safe space to discuss important real world events and issues while having the opportunity to develop creative solutions with a team!"
