Dear Delegates of the World,
My name is Abigail (Abi) Rasol, and I am pleased and honored to announce my position as an All-American Alum Associate this year.
I’ve been involved with Model U.N. since 9th grade, when I joined my school team upon entering high school. My multiple adventures in Model U.N. have allowed me to flourish and to expand my skills and capabilities in public speaking, collaboration, diplomacy, and a number of other areas, and there have been few activities in life that I have found as intellectually stimulating and eye-opening as Model U.N. I’m incredibly thankful for all of the opportunities that MUN has given me, and I can’t wait to share all of that with my new role as an Alum Associate.
I’m currently a senior at the Abraham Joshua Heschel School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I’m captain and Secretary-General of my school Model U.N. team, and am extremely excited to host our fourth annual conference, HeschMUN, this spring. Apart from Model U.N., I am Editor-in-Chief of our school newspaper, former Captain of the Debate Team, and a Student Admissions Representative. I’m also an avid social justice activist and feminist; I sit on the Harvard Making Caring Common Board and am active with several feminist organizations. I have found my passion for human rights and social justice to be central to my Model U.N. experience; UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Committee) and CSW (Committee on the Status of Women) are, unsurprisingly, my favorite committees.
This past summer, I traveled to Beijing, China with the All-American team to attend the WEMUN Expo, where I won Best Delegate and the team won Best Delegation. I am excited to now again return to All-American, this time with a role of a new nature. I’m pleased to announce that I am the Alumni Regional Representative for the Southern region of the United States, which includes the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. This is a region that I am not particularly familiar with, so I am very excited to get to know it through the lens of Model U.N.
I’m looking forward to sharing my Model U.N. experiences, tips and tricks, and general advice through the All-American blog and to getting to know many new delegates through my new role. If you’d like to reach me for any reason, please feel free to do so at [email protected].
Cheers to the new Model U.N. season!
All the best,
Alumni Associate, South/Southeast Region
