HKBU student named Best Delegate at Asian International Model United Nations Conference

浸大生獲頒北京大學國際模擬聯合國大會最佳團員獎

The outstanding performance of HKBU student Joscelin Yeung (Government and International Studies, Year 2) resulted in her being named the Best Delegate of the UNICEF committee at the 2014 Asian International Model United Nations Conference recently held at Peking University, Beijing.

The University’s delegation comprising 10 HKBU students represented South Korea and Nigeria in their assigned simulated committees, discussing and developing resolutions for important international issues through intense discussions, presentations and negotiations.

As the Head Delegate of the HKBU team, Joscelin recalled her participation in the Conference as “a dream of diplomacy and change”. She believed that what mattered most was not the award, but the friendship with other participants and the insights gained on various global issues during the process. She said: “The few days of intensive debate on UNICEF funding were one of the best memories of my life. In addition, cooperation with fellow delegates from all over the world for our Country Programme Document was the key to success. It was not my individual effort but the assistance and contribution provided by my group members that helped us attain our goal.”

浸大政治及國際關係學系二年級楊臻茜同學憑著出色的表現,在2014年北京大學國際模擬聯合國大會中獲頒「最佳團員獎(聯合國兒童基金會專責委員會)」。

由十位浸大學生組成的代表團獲派模擬南韓及尼日利亞的國家代表,透過討論、報告和談判在所屬的專責委員會中探討各項重要的國際議題,並尋找解決方案。

楊同學是今屆浸大隊的領隊團員,她回想參與是次活動是「一場外交夢和改變」,又認為獲獎與否並非最重要,更重要是過程當中與其他參加者建立的友誼,以及探討各項國際議題所獲的知識。她說﹕「這數天隊伍深入辯論聯合國兒童基金的款項議題,是我人生中最深刻的事。與來自世界各地的與會代表合作,令團隊的國家方案文件得以順利修訂,這並非單靠我個人的努力,而是隊員的共同努力才能獲得這項佳績的。」
