The event gives teens the chance to think and act like world leaders, and tackle global problems.Because these are students from all different schools, you get a lot of people concentrated together that have very similar interests, said Rachel Sommers from Pittsford Mendon.And they get to represent different countries, which is very unique and they get to learn their policies and current issues, said Adil Ali from Pittsford Sutherland.
