On March 19-21, the YISS Model United Nations team competed in YMUN Asia with schools from Korea, Taiwan, China, Singapore, and more. YISS was involved in 14 committees and won the following awards: Rachel K., Grace K., and Siyeon L. received Best Delegate; Audrey Y., and Erica C. received Outstanding Delegate; and Sohom D. received an honorable mention.

This year was an unusual one in which our MUN members confronted COVID-based challenges including canceled and rescheduled conferences. In addition, the format for each conference was entirely on Zoom. Nevertheless, our delegates practiced every week via a hybrid of Zoom and in-person sessions, growing in their proficiency to create solutions and work collaboratively to address global challenges. While we bid a fond farewell to our strong seniors, we look forward to next year where our team will continue to grow and hopefully compete in live conferences. Great job this year!
