Liveblog: CCCMUN Day 1 & Opening Ceremonies Speech

by KFC on November 6, 2010

The Contra Costa County Model United Nations conference kicked off with some inspirational words and great debate! Best Delegate‘s Kevin Felix Chan delivered a speech during the opening ceremonies about the most important personal lesson from Model UN — to be inspired by uncertainty and to let success come to you.

Delegates overcame uncertainty and worked collaboratively to resolve the issues. Check out the action from unmoderated caucus:

Both delegates are only in their second year of participating in Model UN but have already demonstrated strong leadership skills:

Kevin mentioned in his opening speech to remember to enjoy your Model UN experience. Looks like the delegates and staff are having a lot of fun so far!
