Pembroke’s United Nations Week
The success achieved during United Nations week was only possible because of the hard work and dedication provided by both students and teachers at Pembroke.
Every step of the project taught us unique things that aim to improve our set of skills that will be useful for our futures.
Firstly, being placed in a group taught us teamwork, the position some of us got to take as project manager taught us leadership skills, we increased our knowledge of the world with lessons on the United Nations, and we also learned how to manage our time as young leaders. And finally, we improved our public speaking by acting as delegates and diplomats representing our designated country’s views on nuclear danger.
Our Model United Nations Debate was held at the Formal Hall at Corpus Christi College in Cambridge which was a beautiful setting and very inspiring.
We all learned this throughout hours of lessons, project preparations and debates, while being in a completely different environment, with people from all around the world and creating unforgettable memories.
Bucksmore can be described as special for many reasons, but for me the main one would that they see us as we should be recognized: future leaders of our generation.
I, just like my fellow colleagues, am grateful for the things I learned at my time spent at Pembroke.
