Among the various after-school activities offered at YCIS Shanghai, one is my favourite -- Model United Nations (MUN), an educational simulation and experiential programme that provides students with a better understanding of the inner workings of the United Nations and a forum to hone skills in diplomacy, negotiation, critical thinking, compromise, public speaking, writing, and research.

The Student Council at YCIS Shanghai is one of the core organisations of the student body. We are a student-run group set up to further enhance school life. Student Council members are elected at the beginning of each school year by their individual home rooms, and each form has a representative. As part of our responsibilities, we gather every week to plan and discuss events, and this is also a chance for the form representatives to raise the topics brought up by their classmates.

The advancement of technology has connected countless people across the globe, enhancing standards of living and relationships between communities; hence, we are no longer merely citizens of individual nations, rather, we are citizens of a united society. As global citizens, and particularly as part of the younger generation, I believe it is our obligation to make positive contributions to the world and to be cognizant of current affairs and the impact of politics on our society.
