Secretary-General Julia Farrow led the UCIMUN team. She wanted delegates to understand that Model UN is not just about the weekend conference:

“You learn real-life skills. I use diplomacy and research skills in all aspects of my life. Human interaction is such an important part of MUN — it’s so applicable to every facet of life.”
