Andy Barazza, Gabi Coueille, Megan Eu, Katja Sluga, Jiani Wang, Katie McNall, and Terrah Short are colleagues from Model United Nations, which is a simulation of the United Nations.

Here we talk about how they became involved.

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: How did you become involved in MUN?

Andy Barazza: I joined the Model UN club in my high school when I was in 9th grade and did it all through high school. When I came to University, the club president at UBC was an orientations leader and I joined the club when memberships opened up that year.

Gabi Coueille: I always wanted to do MUN, but they didn’t have it as a program at my high school. I came to UW last year and saw an add for an intro meeting to the club on campus, and I’ve been in it ever since.

Megan Eu: I first started MUN through my high school club. I didn’t really know what MUN was but I joined the club since I thought the people in it were pretty cool. After being a junior page at NWMUN Seattle, I got more interested in MUN and began to really love it after some conferences. So when I went to UW I had to join the MUN club there as well.

Katja Sluga: I actually joined MUN this year at UBC MUN 2019. I have no experience with MUN, but I have been involved in logistics in the past and was therefore able to provide logistical support of this year’s conference.

Jiani Wang: My friend asked me to join.

Katie McNall: I became involved in Model United Nations in high school. I lived overseas and just about every school activity involved travel. I tried MUN out and loved it! We unfortunately only did MUN for two years before switching to model congress. When I went to college I made sure to look up the MUN team there and join!

Terrah Short: I became involved in MUN when my roommate at the time, Katie McNall, came back in November following her first trip to NWMUN Seattle in 2013. I asked her what she had been doing that weekend and she explained to me what Model UN was. I thought it sounded interesting, and so I joined the club and found myself at a conference a couple of months later.
