    Hi! My name is Sanskriti Tandon and I’m a junior in Qatar Academy Doha. I have lived in Doha for the last 7 years of my life and before this I was in Singapore for a couple of years. Being Indian, I am surrounded with people who are in desperate need of aid every time I go back during summer. This is what drove me to join this program and find a way to create a difference with the abundance of resources that are available to us and still remain a fantasy to them. The last 2 years I have spent doing MUN have given me an insight towards the reasons this takes place but never a realistic solution which could be implemented. I’m most excited about taking charge to create a difference rather than listening to people debate about issues which may only affect a small group of people.


    Hello, my name is Laura Valeria Cardona. I’m currently Im a junior in Qatar Academy Doha, I’ve been in QAD since the first grade. I moved to Doha when I was 4 years old, prior to that I was living in Colombia. I love living in Doha as it has exposed me to so much diversity, I have friends from all over the world. I’m looking forward to sharing new ideas and opinions while working with the other students as well as expanding my knowledge on other countries while being part their positive change. I’ve seen Colombia experience various difficulties and it seems to be all that people know about Colombia. Surrounded by all the negativity and biased opinions there is a core of rich culture, unique peoples and a beautiful country. Without a doubt Colombia is not the only country to experience this. I want help make a change and start celebrating a countries positives and not their negatives.
