Dovran B., an Arzuw Scholar and junior at AUBG, was recognized for his outstanding achievements at the Blagoevgrad Model United Nations Conference in February. In recognition of his accomplishments, Dovran was chosen to represent the American University in Bulgaria as he participates in the MUIMUN conference this April in Germany.
The Münster University International Model United Nations (MUIMUN) began as a student run conference that has developed into one of Germany’s largest university-level MUN’s. The 6th annual MUIMUN is expected to attract students from 30 countries around the world.
During the upcoming conference Dovran will be representing the United States of America in the General Assembly. He is currently working to prepare his position papers on the topics of “Bounded Labor and Economic Exploitation” and “The Right of Religious Education of Children.” Representing a country assigned to a delegate means to be ready to discuss, deliver speeches, lobby and think outside the box in order to come up with solutions. Dovran says of his expectations for his participation in the MUIMUN, “The MUIMUN environment is a broader perspective that will help me to gain the intellectual curiosity and disposition for lifelong learning…. Moreover, the diverse and multicultural society of MUIMUN will also help me to enrich my understanding of ethno-cultural diversity, and develop tolerance, respect and recognition of other values and traditions.”
