Arnold SangingaDR Congo | Director of Programs

    Arnold’s passion for diplomacy and global collaboration developed after living in Nigeria, Uganda, and Kenya as a Congolese citizen. This led him to participate at several Model United Nations conferences ranging from the East African Model United Nations (EAMUN), UNESCO Center for Peace International Model United Nations (IMUN) and Harvard Model United Nations (HMUN).

    He is currently at Macalester College, USA studying Political Science with an African Studies concentration. Before this, he attended the African Leadership Academy in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he completed his A-Levels and earned a diploma in Entrepreneurial Leadership. During his time there, he took interest in the arts; performing in a French play, as well as choreographing and performing contemporary dance pieces. He believes his biggest achievement was serving as Chairperson of the African Leadership Academy Model African Union (ALAMAU) in 2015 when he organised a conference that simulated the African Union for over 100 students representing more than 40 nationalities.

    Arnold dedicates his free time towards developing a program that seeks to further boost efforts in rehabilitating victims such as child soldiers in conflict-torn areas.
