I love that we were well prepared for the New York conference. I do not feel that anything was over stressed in class. We mainly focused on position paper revising in class, and even though making a perfect position paper was not a major aspect of the conference, I do believe that researching information for the position paper did help. In fact, I wish we simply would have emphasized that. Not just properly writing the position paper, but finding better research for the paper and ultimately the conference.

I know it would be an easier job when it came to lobbying if I had a few major world leaders on my side. As for the notepads, I loved them and completely utilized them. I almost ran out in fact.
