ITS Campus, ITS News – Students of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) have been relentlessly scoring some achievements. This time, the achievement came from four ITS students who managed to win four awards in the prestigious Singapore Model United Nations (SMUN) 2021 held for four days, starting June 7, virtually.
It was Kennard Mahib Bariumanto (Department of Information Systems) and Letarensky Thereshanauly (Department of Marine Transportation Engineering) who won the Verbal Commendation award, as well as Jemima Audrey Natasha (Department of Marine Engineering) as the Most Outstanding Delegate, and Muhammad Fikrar Claverio (Department of Architecture) as the best position paper.
Kennard Mahib Bariumanto, one of its delegates at the SMUN event revealed, Model United Nations (MUN) itself is a united nations simulation conference (PBB) that hones the ability of participants to become diplomats. “This conference provides a platform for national and international delegations, both in secondary schools and universities, to engage with international issues diplomatically,” he said.
In this conference, added students who are familiarly called Kean. Not only English language skills are tested, but also diplomacy, negotiation, leadership, impromptu speech, drafting, and other problem-solving skills. “In the SMUN competition, we will give a topic to discuss and a country to presented,” said the bespectacled young man.
In four days, he continued, approximately participants were given time to conduct debate sessions 8-times with the duration of 2.5 hours each. Before reaching this stage, they need to pass four selections consisting of file selection, Focus Group Discussion, simulation, and interview.
According to the student born in Jakarta, June 6, 2001, ITS team has been preparing thoroughly for three months. Thanks to the mentor guidance at ITS MUN Club, Kean claimed to get many lessons. For example, debates are an exercise in impromptu and critical thinking. “In addition, we are also trained in manner, speech, mastery of materials, tips and tricks, to authorship,” he explained.
Before joining SMUN, Kean and his three colleagues have won many awards in other MUN competitions. No wonder, ITS MUN Club itself often sends delegates to various international events, from Germany to the Netherlands. “Our victory this time is certainly the highest achievement for us because it can bring its name on the international scene,” he said proudly.
At the end of the discussion, Kean hopes that ITS MUN Club which has now become a Student Activity Unit (UKM) can send more delegates to other prestigious competitions. “In the future, I also hope that many ITS students will join ITS MUN Club because it can help improve their English language skills in public,” he concluded.
