Hi guys I’m Katherine Booth, the Secretary General of our MVHS MUN program for 2019-2020. I’ve been in MUN all 4 of my high school years. (The picture is from when I was Ruth Bader Ginsburg for Halloween) I didn’t join MUN for the college app clout, although it does look pretty good on applications let’s be honest. I joined MUN because I really believe in all the program can do. Deciding to join MUN was a big step out of my comfort zone, due to the extensive amounts of public speaking. I never would have thought, freshman year, that I would eventually lead the program. MUN is what you make it, and for me, it was a growing experience that has shaped me into the person I am today. I know that sounds dramatic, but it’s true. I hope you allow MUN to expand your thinking, improve your public speaking skills, inform your knowledge about current events, or to just be a fun thing you enjoy.
I’m excited for our annual conference this year! I know no one likes waking up early on the weekend but I know MVHS will not disappoint. Our theme for this year is Opus justitiae pax, or “the work of justice shall be peace”. I look forward to seeing you all January 18th and 19th!
