“Personally, I felt very privileged because of the experience that NIS has given me over the years. RYSMUN was my fifth conference and I already had good knowledge of the topic being discussed; I felt more experienced and in control than many of the other 24 delegates,” explained Ismail.
We are very proud of these students who represented NIS and Egypt and spent extra hours in Copenhagen preparing for this conference and sacrificing their free time. We hope they will inspire members of next years CC8 class to participate in this outstanding international conference!
