During our meeting Monday April 1, 2019, Honorary Member Robin Barkes introduced our FAU HS Model UN Student Aitana Gonzalez Borges.  Aitana thanked our club for sponsoring her to attend the Ivy League Model United Nations Conference in Philadelphia, PA. 
She told us that she participated in the diplomatic simulation of the Economic and Financial Council of the United Nations, in which she focused on the issues of food security in developing nations as well as the regulation of cryptocurrency.  This simulation required work with other nations to solve problems in a 24-hour period.  
Aitana said, " this experience was a very rich one, as it allowed me to grow in my communication skills, and my abilities to compromise with other people."  She thanked us for the opportunity to broaden her horizons with this engaging and educational experience involving world-wide cooperation.
