TOGAMUN was a Model United Nations (MUN) conference organized and hosted by high school students and made to help other students strengthen their problem solving, diplomacy, public speaking, and social and communication skills. Complete with a dais team, placards, and a makeshift gavel, the long-awaited conference was underway! Not only that, participants dressed in togas in correspondence with the topic of debate, ready to embark on the unique learning experience that MUN provides. Throughout the course of the day, delegates assumed the role of a character in a novel and debated about the book’s underlying issues. They communicated their stance on the issue at hand, worked together to make peaceful resolutions, and stepped outside their comfort zone to extend their knowledge to a new environment. This MUN conference allowed both seasoned and first-time delegates to grow in their confidence and public speaking, with every delegate demonstrating the imagination to think of novel solutions, the courage to set forth their ideas, and the tenacity to stand up for them. A total of seven hours of debate and placards raised hundreds of times contributed to solving the problem of an impending war as well as the moral debate of life and death. A jam-packed day full of discussion and collaboration, TOGAMUN truly was, as one delegate described, a “magical experience” for all.
