“Traveling to India with All-American was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve ever had. The friendships I made, skills I gained and culturally enriching experiences I learned from go far beyond the trip itself. The mentors taught me how to be a better team member and leader, especially when I became head delegate; they helped me pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses, stay calm under pressure, and balance my personals goals with team goals.
I remember the night before the closing ceremony at HMUN India, Frank pulled me aside and reminded me of how nervous everyone would be the next day. He gave me enough candy for the whole team so that I could leave candy and encouraging notes outside everyone’s door. When the team woke up the next day to the notes and candy, we all felt ready to end the conference on a high note—in the end, we were happy to take home Best Small Delegation! If I had the opportunity to travel to India with the team again, I would do it in a heartbeat.”Laura Chu, All-American 2015
“It’s hard for me to explain how much my All-American experience has changed my life. I traveled to China and India, two places I didn’t think I’d ever get to go to, with an amazing team. Spending so much time with such awesome people is something I’ll always remember. Being able to experience the cultures of China and India within two and half weeks changed the way I viewed history, politics, and society.
Then there’s the mentorship and support that I’ve received from Frank and the other mentors. They want to get to know every person on the team and see them succeed in all that they do.”Alex Nehrbass, All-American 2015
“Going to Budapest with All-American was one of the best decisions I made in High School. The competition was tough, but having Frank as a coach really helped me navigate my way through the many obstacles I faced in committee. Coming home with a gavel was great, but that feeling that comes with world travels made the the experience one I will never forget.”Roshan Shelley, All-American 2016
