By Aaron Humes: The University of Belize (UB) has recognized six delegates who participated in the recent Virtual Model Organization of American States (MOAS) General Assembly for the English-Speaking Caribbean and Historically Black Universities, co-hosted by Howard University.

The team represented delegations of OAS member states (in their case, Haiti) in promotion of democratic values and acquaint students with the role and structure of the OAS and the Inter-American agenda. Students are provided with the opportunity to explore major political, economic, social, and security issues impacting the Western Hemisphere, experience diplomacy as a tool for problem-solving, and develop intercultural awareness. The MOAS thus serves as a platform to coach and develop the leaders of today and tomorrow.

The team of Maslin Hanson, Mark Woodye, Pedro Cal, Joshua Seguro, Jaden Coleman and Collin Smith, mentored by April Martinez, History Lecturer and Lynmara Rosado, Social Sciences Lecturer, were placed into one of three committees – the General Committee (GC), Committee on Juridical and Political Affairs (CAJP), and the Inter-American Council for Integral Development (CIDI) – in order to tackle judicial, economic, political, health, and education issues of the region and to create resolutions on them.

Delegates had the opportunity to work with students from other Caribbean countries and learn how different cultures work alongside each other. To culminate the MOAS, an election is held to appoint committee members to lead next year’s MOAS. Jaden Coleman was elected Vice-Chair of the CIDI Committee, automatically placing him as one of the University of Belize’s representatives in next year’s MOAS.
