Hello! My name is Arlo Halpern and I’m honored to be working with All-American Model United Nations this year! I truly believe that MUN has been the most important extracurricular experience of my high school career, teaching me effective public speaking, leadership, and negotiation strategies. It also goes without saying that MUN will help you to be more aware about international affairs and foreign policy. I’m a firm believer that All-American unlocked incredible opportunities for me to explore and expand those skills, and I encourage all of you to proactively seek out opportunities either with All-American or with your school. If I could give you one piece of advice about how to succeed at MUN, I would tell you to relax and have a good time. If you’re in a good state of mind and having fun, chances are you’ll feel more comfortable speaking and your demeanor will be more pleasant. It’s a win-win situation–you feel great and people want to talk to you.
