Hello! Thank you for visiting our website.
Nabila Elassar is a Model UN veteran whose MUN Journey started in 2002, and since then, has included numerous escapades of bringing valuable educational leadership ventures to global success. This first included multiple experiences a delegate, secretariat/ staff member, board member, Model UN program developer, Model UN trainer & professional consultant and finally, education entrepreneur.
Nabila holds a Masters Degree in Education from Stanford University, an Executive Certification in Non-Profit Leadership from Harvard University, two Executive Certifications in Entrepreneurship and Advanced Project Management from Stanford University and a High-Honors Bachelor in Management Technology with a Double Major in Economics/ Marketing from the German University in Cairo.
She has developed educational curricula and taught Model United Nations in the three major platforms to hundreds of students in multiple locations including Geneva, Switzerland, London, UK, Doha, Qatar, Moscow, Russia, Cairo, Egypt, Kuwait, Dubai, Sharjah & Abu Dhabi, UAE, and New York, USA. United Ambassadors' valuable initiatives in the field of Model United Nations have affected over 3000 students (to date) who have taken part in the programs on-site, as well as thousands of website/ social media followers. United Ambassadors' delegates and staff have come from 140+ countries of residence + nationality, and its programs continue to consistently deliver excellence in every location.
Her first encounter with the United Nations was in 2015 while attending an educational workshop by the United Nations Department of Global Communications (previously known as DPI) at the UN Headquarters, where she had previously developed a UN4MUN training video series that was mentioned in the opening statement of that workshop. Later, Nabila contributed to the original development of UN4MUN by introducing the world's first complete accurate simulations of the International Court of Justice, and the ECOSOC High-Level Political Forum, the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Human Rights Council through direct consultations with the ICJ information department, the ECOSOC HLPF Secretariat, UN Women, and the UN Human Rights Council. In order to achieve this task, Nabila traveled to the International Court of Justice to meet with the ICJ Information Department in the Hague, Netherlands and arranged direct meetings and consultations with UN officials and subject matter experts from across the UN system un multiple offices.
Before starting United Ambassadors, Nabila worked at two startups founded by female entrepreneurs and at a Multinational FMCG in data analysis and insights generation. In Model UN, before United Ambassadors, she worked with numerous organizations as a website contributor, multilingual MUN developer, trainer, and consultant. Presently, she is developing United Ambassadors educational programs and running its global educational leadership ventures, which have taken place in 5 major cities worldwide, and welcome delegates and staff from 140+ countries. She serves as the Academic Director of UA-MUNC, a leading UN4MUN conference held at the UN Office in Geneva, and the UN HQ in New York. She is also the trainer at the UN4MUN workshops held in collaboration with the United Nations in NYC, Geneva and previously held in London, and the Academic Director of the MUN Academy in Dubai.
United Ambassadors was built on the premise that Model United Nations is a platform that can inspire youth, develop leadership skills, accelerate future success in any field and create "Global Youth Citizens" working to serve society and better the planet. Nabila believes that education can change the world. United Ambassadors strives to achieve this mission through Model UN education, one program, one speech, one delegate, one conference, and one gavel at a time.
