WASHINGTON ACADEMY MODEL OF UNITED NATIONS
WELCOME FROM THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF WAMUN 2007
It is my pleasure to welcome you, in the name of Washington Academy and the entire organizing staff of WAMUN 2007, to our second edition of our model.
As we once again face the challenge of representing the United Nations inside the walls of our own school I find myself trying to define the meaning and purpose of WAMUN and what it stands for.:
WAMUN stands for integrity; and the belief that a group of great minds working together can change the world.
WAMUN stands for honor, respect, and leadership.
Most importantly we seek to promote one thing; Discovery. Self-discovery, innovative ideas, curiosity, constructive criticism, and all shapes and sizes in which it manifests itself. In no way is this one word easy to achieve but if accomplished Discovery represents the beginning of a chain of changes; progressive changes.
The world for us is still in the making and I invite you, I challenge you, to begin the process right here in WAMUN.
I hope we greatly enjoy this next few days together and make the most of it.
Welcome. Let the show begin!
