My first time at a National Model United Nations (NMUN) conference in Washington D.C. The committee my partner and I was in was the United Nations Environmental Assembly (UNEA).

The next one was inspired by classmates who vape and tell me their reasons why they vape which I understand because puffing smoke still has negative effects.
