In a remarkable achievement, Jeffrey Belen, a 3rd-year student of Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Mathematics, participated in the Asia Youth International Model United Nations (AYIMUN) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on January 26-29, 2024, which conglomerated young leaders from across the globe to discuss and address world issues.

Belen, representing the CBSUA and one of the delegates from the Philippines, was among the distinguished participants chosen to engage in meaningful dialogues and collaborate on solutions for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event’s theme, “Strengthening Collaborative Action Plan for the Sustainable Development Goals,” reflected the urgency and importance of global cooperation to address pressing challenges.

Guiding and coaching Belen throughout his journey was Leizle B. Manacob, RGC, RPm, a respected faculty member of the College of Development Education (CDE) and the University Guidance Counselor. Manacob’s mentorship highlighted the commitment of educational institutions to nurture and support the aspirations of their students on the international stage.

This year’s AYIMUN witnessed the participation of representatives from 180 countries worldwide, underscoring the event’s global significance and its role in fostering cross-cultural understanding among the youth. The diverse gathering provided a platform for participants to exchange perspectives, share opinions, and cultivate a sense of shared responsibility towards global issues.

Prior to the event, a Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS) was organized by the Office of International Relations (IRO) under the office of the Vice President for Business and External Affairs headed by Prof. Cesar Armando S. Camba, Sr. The PDOS was conducted on January 17, 2024, by Dr. Cherry Love B. Montales, the IRO Director, where she discussed immigration procedures, cultural insights of the destination country, university requirements related to travel, and the re-entry plan.

During the PDOS, the parent of Jeffrey Belen also attended, expressing support for her son’s participation in this international endeavor. The orientation served as an opportunity for parent/s to gain insights into the nature of the international activity and provided them with a sense of assurance regarding their child’s involvement. Also, Prof. Mary Grace B. Polvoriza, the Secondary Education Program Chairperson, gave an inspirational message to Mr. Jeffrey Belen before the travel.

Jeffrey Belen’s selection to participate in AYIMUN not only reflects his academic competence but also underscores the commitment of CBSUA to fostering global citizenship and providing opportunities for students to contribute on an international platform. | 𝘙𝘦𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘓𝘦𝘪𝘻𝘭𝘦 𝘉.
