Eryel Nicole S. Benitez, IBA’s valedictorian of the school year 2013-2014, participated in the Penang Model United Nations held in the state of Penang, Malaysia from July 10th to July 12th 2015. This was the first and premier Model United Nations conference in the state of Penang. with the theme – “Embodying Courage”. The theme expressed the core belief that extends to all aspects of life: to face terror and animosity with bravery, to have the audacity to raise the youth’s voice for the silent and to have the courage to defend their beliefs, morals and principles.
In unusual twist to her participation, as there was no official delegation from the Philippines, Eryel found herself representing France on the model United Nations Economic and Social Council. Once again embodying one of IBA’s visions that our graduates will be global citizens with a strong drive to contribute to society.
