Off to Boston!
The West Point MUN Team spent their Valentine's Day weekend navigating miles of wintry snow and icy roads to participate in the 56th session of the Harvard Model UN Conference, where they represented, of all places, Nigeria.
West Point? Nigeria? Some kind of disconnect going on there, but let me tell you, the National Champion WP team did Nigeria proud! I'm guessing Nigeria has never been that well represented.
And M, like always, did us proud, too, taking second place in his political committee.
So what's next? The World MUN Conference in Taipei, Taiwan next month! Only M won't be there.
Ukraine with a 10-day exchange program? Or Taiwan with MUN? M had to decide, and given his affinity for things Russian, and particularly things Ukrainian, well...no contest.
Yes to Ukraine = No to Taiwan.
