MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Meet Benedetta Landi, from The International School of Milan, Italy, who received the International Student Award in 2016.
Project: Model United Nations (MUN)
Benedetta has made a major contribution to promoting MUN in school and raising student awareness of international issues. She has been a committed member (and leader) of MUN delegations, workshops, committees and clubs during High School, demonstrating a genuine passion for geo-political issues and the political process involved in United Nations diplomacy. She has taken part in 4 full MUN simulations and was a member of a special delegation to MUN EXPO last summer. She has held the role of National Ambassador and Chairperson of an MUN Committee. Benedetta’s passion and leadership have inspired her peers to engage with, debate and take action on global issues from a context of collaborative problem-solving involving multiple and contrasting perspectives.
