Model UN Secretary-General Wins Award

Founded in 1955, the Harvard National Model U.N is the world’s most competitive Model U.N, hosting 3,000 students from over 200 universities and 70 countries. Saint Peter’s University has been partaking in the competition since 1988, winning several awards. This year, the University had the pleasure of representing Ecuador in the competition and students participated in several committees including all General Assembly committees, the International Civil Aviation Organization and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States. After a dry spell of nearly a decade, a Saint Peter’s student has received an award.

Susan Ragheb, a senior majoring in Political Science with a minor in Chemistry and Biology, received Verbal Commendation in the World Health Organization. Her committee had over 130 participants and Ms. Ragheb was distinguished as being among the top delegates for her excellent debating skills and in-depth knowledge of international affairs. Ms. Ragheb has participated in several Model U.N. programs and is currently the Secretary-General of the Saint Peter’s Model U.N, a program under the Guarini Institute for Government and Leadership.

She is an honors student, a member of several honor societies and is currently interning for Senator Cory Booker. Additionally, she has collaborated with faculty members on a chemistry research project and a paper that will published at the 2016 American Chemical Society Conference.
