Published on: April 20, 2012Students from Lone Star College-North Harris recently participated in the annual Bilateral University Model Arab League simulation at the University of Houston Honors College.
The delegation consisted of Ayanna Pierre, Lauren Perez, Kennia Melendez, Stephanie Monroy and Amanda Williams.
“The Model Arab League was a very enriching experience for me. The atmosphere is one of competition, encouragement, and learning. For anyone interested in enhancing their social skills, engaging in debate and learning more about leadership, the Model Arab League is a wonderful way to do so,” said Perez.
The Model Arab League included students from 19 colleges and universities including University of Houston, University of Houston-Clear Lake, West Point Military Academy, Texas Tech University, Troy University, Houston Community College and the University of Texas at Arlington.
The Bilateral University Model Arab League is one of 14 annual simulations across the U.S. hosted by the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations. The event seeks to educate students on issues in the Arab world and improve skills of diplomacy and public discussion.
