Friday - - Inbox - SUKAYNA KAZMI, STU­DENT AT AMER­I­CAN ACADEMY, AL MIZHAR

W hen I read the ar­ti­cle on the Montes­sori Model United Na­tions (‘The child am­bas­sadors’, Fe­bru­ary 28) I was ex­cited as I had taken part.

I met so many new people and I learnt the im­por­tance of team­work, lead­er­ship, friend­ship, di­verse cul­tures, and propos­ing so­lu­tions to world prob­lems. This three-day con­fer­ence in­spired me in so many ways. I felt so con­fi­dent while giv­ing my opin­ion, be­cause I knew my voice was be­ing heard. As a 14-year-old I’ve learnt that just be­cause we’re young, we can still speak up and be heard.

I would like to thank my school, in­struc­tors, teach­ers and friends who en­cour­aged me to par­tic­i­pate in this event. Thank you, Fri­day, and keep on mo­ti­vat­ing us!
