06 Aug United Nations Youth Team
Our very own Samantha Crews (Year 13) has been selected for the UN Youth team for NZ. She will be part of the national team at the Hague International United Nations.
This means she will be attending and competing at the conference in January 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland. Before the conference, the delegation will be doing a study tour and trip around America and Europe.
Samantha says: “I have been involved with UN Youth for the past three years. UN youth was brought to my attention through my love of debating, and I attended my first UN European Union in year 11, and attended the regionals for Canterbury UN in year 12. Last year I also got into the National UN Youth conference held in Wellington, and I got in again this year.”
The selection process for the national team was rigorous and included essays and references before a panel interviewed a shortlist of applicants.
