2014-2015 North American College Model UN All-Star Team

by kbonn on May 7, 2015

Purpose: The purpose of the College Model UN All-Star Team is to recognize exemplary individuals in the college MUN community who have made a difference inside and outside of committee. These sometimes represent but are not necessarily limited to just the best delegates or award winners; conferences already determine those accolades. Rather, the College MUN All-Star Team should be representative of the best and most respected leaders in the community. They are diplomatic and skilled in committee, help strengthen the relationships between schools, provide thoughtful leadership, and make the Model UN experience better for everyone.

Process: College students who participated in at least one college Model United Nations conference in North America were eligible to submit one nomination form of up to ten students on the college circuit. Because of the All-Star Team’s emphasis on community, students were only allowed to nominate up to two delegates from their own school and were not allowed to nominate themselves. The nomination process took place from April 21-27 and was promoted to a wide range of universities by the Best Delegate Media team. Each nominated name received one vote. Ballots were manually edited for spelling inconsistencies and manually checked for validity; only votes from valid ballots counted in the final numbers. Delegates receiving the top number of votes were given All-Star team honors divided into three tiers that reflect the percentage of votes received: this year it was 11 First Team, 13 Second Team, and 18 Third Team.

Credits: Best Delegate Media Editor-in-Chief Katherine Bonner spread awareness of the nomination process and sourced the All-Star Team biographies and photos. Thank you to all the individuals who contributed biographies, and thanks to everyone on the circuit for participating in recognizing their peers for leadership in the community.

All names are in alphabetical order within each tier. Biographies and photos are provided by the All-Star’s peers. This year’s biographers represented some of the top delegates on the circuit that were friends, teammates, and competitors of All-Star Team members.

Originally hailing from Dhaka, Bangladesh, Atif is a friend of pretty much anybody that he’s ever been in a committee or staffed a conference with, and he constantly impresses his peers with his passion for Model UN. This man is living proof that being a genuine guy and a decent person who cares about others is infinitely more important than awards, though he brings home plenty of awards anyway. Next year, Atif will be finishing his undergraduate degree while working on his Masters in UN Studies and playing cricket.

He is proud to have spearheaded Georgetown’s initial attendance at Harvard WorldMUN, which the Hoyas won in 2014.

University of Chicago

Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 5.01.06 PMDistinctive from afar (mostly because of his accent), Apratim’s done an inspiring job co-leading the University of Chicago Model UN team for the last two years. With a truly impressive record, including very competitive Ad-Hocs and three exciting collegiate committees under his belt, Apratim manages to stay likeable and approachable, as well as an engaging conversationalist. With a host of other Model UN experiences (including a summer teaching Model UN in China), Apratim now takes his skills to Mumbai, India, working in economic development advising – somehow, still living the Model UN dream of doing good in the world.

Blake Goodman

University of Florida

Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 5.12.55 PMThrough his years in Model United Nations, Frederick Kolb has risen as a leader on the circuit. Fred acts with precision, effectively dealing with the crises; this often shows in his speeches where he takes care not to mince words or filibuster.

As he led University of Florida’s team through the circuit  (and to many individual and delegation awards) this year, he will be greatly missed.

Kristen Nyman
Florida International University

Screen Shot 2015-05-07 at 5.20.59 PMA rising senior double majoring in International Relations and Political Science, Kristen joined the FIU Model UN program in the fall of 2012 and was a born natural.

She as been a part of and/or led 13 delegation-award-winning delegations and led Harvard to its highest-ever Best Delegate ranking at #2 this past fall. When the class of 2015 graduates, Delany will hold the Harvard record for largest number of Model UN conference attended as a staff or delegate by a current undergraduate, at 30. Delany’s commitment to Model UN at Harvard culminates this year as she serves as President of Harvard’s pan-MUN International Relations Council, which organizes 5 conferences around the world. With another year on the circuit remaining, Delany has already established herself as a fiercely competitive and strong-willed delegate, an effective and beloved leader, and a deeply kind and devoted teammate and friend.

Although the list of his individual accomplishments is long (including winning four consecutive gavels this semester and serving as Crisis Director of the Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary-General at UCBMUN XIX), his greatest accomplishments this year revolved around his team and community – he led UCBMUN to five delegation awards and helped to build a sense of camaraderie on the circuit as a whole.
