As a member of Model UN, The Ivy League Model United Nations Conference (ILMUNC for short) is the event to end all events. Held at the esteemed University of Pennsylvania, the conference takes place over four days and hosts high schools from across the country, about 2,000 students. The Langley Model UN club looks at the conference as the most important one of the year. With hard work and dedication, the club earned the equivalent of second place at this year’s ILMUNC. While some schools would take this placing as a victory, Langley MUN settles for nothing, but the best.

Sophomore Ritvik Chennupati is on his second year of Model UN and loves the competition. Chennupati believes Langley is an extremely strong delegation, and is a bit disappointed in himself that he was unable to bring the team to victory, but believes that there will be other opportunities for success. “I know that Langley will come back stronger than ever and we’re never going to lose again.” Chennupati said.

Other members of the delegation are just proud of Saxon MUN for trying their best. Conferences like this are very taxing, with long hours, time away from home, and heavy preparation required. Students have to give 110% in order for the delegation to run smoothly.

“Langley performed so well. There wasn’t a single time throughout the conference where anyone was working their absolute hardest.” Sophomore Ana Bogdadi said. Bogdadi loves working at conferences like this one, not just for the prizes and awards but also the rewarding feeling she gets after a hard day’s work on the committee. However, winning is also always a plus.

“I’ve been to ILMUNC since I was a freshman, and each time, getting a delegation award is truly something special, because each member of the team helped us get there.” Senior Oksana Vickers said. Vickers is a MUN veteran, and thoroughly enjoys every conference the club attends.

While Model UN is ultimately about competition, Langley students get more out of it than just trophies. They gain friends, knowledge, and experiences, they would not have otherwise had. “Ask anyone in the MUN program, we are all close. This sense of family gives winning an award a different level because you feel you are helping your school and making your family proud. That’s why we will continue to perform well. Hail Saxons!” Chennupati said.
