During an assembly Wednesday morning, Prep’s juniors and seniors heard from Geraldine Byrne Nason, the Irish Ambassador to the United Nations. Ambassador Byrne Nason appeared via Zoom to discuss her career in international affairs, and Ireland’s role on the global stage. This included her successful campaign to secure an elected seat for Ireland on the UN Security Council in 2020 (a seat it will continue to hold through the end of 2022), and Ireland’s priorities as a member of the council.

She encouraged students to find their voices, trust they can make a difference, and pursue a career in international relations if they have an interest in the field. Prep is grateful to the ambassador for taking time to speak with our students, and to Ethan Richards. ’22 of the Global Education Student Board for making this connection!
