I found project week very enjoyable and an extremely enriching experience. I worked with Free the Bears in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Our activities included cleaning bear enclosures, preparing food and enrichment items, and painting cages. These are activities that I haven’t done before and I hence worked on learning outcome 2 as it was a challenging yet informative experience. I learned several things about sun bears and moon bears that I was not aware of prior to the trip. We also got to see several other animals. The highlight of the trip for me was throwing the enrichment items into the bear enclosures and watching them play with them and try to lick the food in the toys. I found it very fulfilling to see that our hard work was paying off.

I worked on learning outcome 6 as well because ill treatment of animals is an issue of global significance which our service providers are sincerely trying to tackle.




I recently participated in the SIMUN (Singapore International Model Untied Nations) conference. It was my first international conference and I found it very informative and enjoyable. I learned how a conference works as well as how to interact with people of different cultures to create a resolution. I thus worked on learning outcomes 5 and 6 as I had to work collaboratively to find a solution to an issue of global significance



The MUN activity has been very educational for me so far. I have not only learned about the practicalities of an MUN conference but have also learned a lot about current affairs and impending problems in the world. I have thus worked on learning outcome 6. I will be attending my first MUN conference in March 2019. I am excited for it and have already begun my research
