Prior to attending the conference, the students had researched Yemen's and Morocco's history and the current political state in order to represent their country most realistically and effectively. After our arrival, everyone needed to quickly master the parliamentary procedures and language of an international diplomatic conference. Over the course of the conference, all students became deeply involved in the politics of their councils and the discussions did not end with the last council session.

At the end of the conference, two students from AU, Lindsey Richey and Ross Wilmot, received honorable mention awards for their representation of Morocco on the political and environmental councils. Everyone who attended agreed that their understanding of Arab politics and diplomatic etiquette was much more concrete. Also, everyone, except for the seniors, is looking forward to another round next year.
