In recent representation at the Arab Youth International Model United Nations conference held in Dubai, he was awarded for Diplomacy & Honorary Mentions as well as played a huge role in securing Most Outsanding Delegation for Jamaica.
Mr. Hall’s work spans from youth leadership to volunteerism with a special vested interested in politics.
