Tallahassee Community College will host the Tallahassee Southern Model United Nations (TSMUN) Conference Friday, February 11, 2022. More than 100 middle and high school students are expected to attend the conference held at TCC.
This year’s theme is, Out of the Ashes, inspired by Kimberly Richter, a former UN Foundation Public Affairs intern. The theme is intended to encourage delegates to focus on resilience and to make collective efforts rather than thinking individually.
Virginia Dailey will be the keynote speaker for the conference. Dailey, an attorney with Panza Maurer, began her legal career overseas where she represented foreign governments and companies in international litigation and arbitration proceedings, working in Washington, D.C., and London.
TSMUN strives to help students understand international affairs and figure out if a career in politics is something they want to pursue. Students act as national ambassadors to defend their chosen country’s views. Students write speeches, resolve conflicts, negotiate with allies and adversaries, and collaborate to draft resolutions. Model United Nation conferences show students a world perspective to enhance their knowledge of the world’s current climate.
