CCF - From Becca - Part 3
On Thursday, my interest group (Advocacy and Political Strategy) was informed that negotiators from the Maldives and from China would be visiting Friday and that we would be preparing a question and answer session with the negotiators to be presented before the other delegates. I, along with Cressie (my roommate from the UK), Ragnar from Iceland, and Anand from India were chosen by the group to introduce the negotiators and serve as questioners. We developed a variety of questions that would provide interesting answers, and we meticulously evaluated these questions from all angles to ensure that the negotiators had to answer directly, yet would not be offended. The amount of time debating over each individual word was incredible, yet necessary.
