 Errand  Model UN of Hogwarts  Sign Ups   Archive 

A pile of papers in the arms of the women wearing a red cloak that caresses the ground begins to be manually passed out at each seat in her classroom. Every seat had a "Frequently Asked Questions" paper that included all information about her new activity for second years: Model United Nations of Hogwarts.

To Maya, this was a big deal. Many muggle-based schools had a Model UN of their own where students learn the politics around the world, how to judge others humanity with ethics and without bias and more. It was truly a strategy that Maya believed would be a lovely addition to Hogwarts, let alone, the Wizarding World. Typically, the Wizarding World had their own political views through the Ministry of Magic in England as well as MACUSA in the United States. It was time for students of Hogwarts to get a taste of Muggle Studies and what better than through the system.

As students walked into the classroom, Maya directed them to open seats where the papers lay waiting. With no words, students are asked to read the FAQ page and sign up at the bottom of the worksheet, handing it into Maya that they would like to join Hogwarts first Model UN.
