By Aaron Humes: The University of Belize (UB) recognized six delegates who attended the recent General Assembly of the Virtual Model Organization of American States (MOAS) for English-Speaking Caribbean and Historically Black Universities, co-hosted by the University Howard.
The team represented delegations from OAS member states (in their case, Haiti) in promoting democratic values and familiarized students with the role and structure of the OAS and the inter-American agenda. Students have 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 cross-cultural 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, led by history lecturer April Martinez and social sciences lecturer Lynmara Rosado, were placed in one of the 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 address judicial, economic, political, health and education of the region and to create resolutions about them.
Delegates had the opportunity to work with students from other Caribbean countries and learn how different cultures work side by side. To cap off MOAS, an election is being held to nominate the committee members who will 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 representatives to next year’s MOAS.
