The Back in Time Committee focused on topic A first, the Cuban embargo. In the second session we moved past addressing the issue and on to trying to solve the problem at hand. This was very difficult because half of the countries tended to side with the delegation of the United States and the other half tended to side with the delegation from Cuba.
It taught me how to think about what East Germany’s, my delegation’s, decision would have been at the time, instead of my individual opinion. It taught me how to think about the opinions of other counties and step outside of my comfort zone.
