New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2011
The Stellar Six participate in a debate on the important issue of redistricting New York State.
||Aboudoubaki Boukari (D, WF) represented New York Senate District 14 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator Malcolm A. Smith. Aboudoubaki voted against Bill MS-15 because he felt that waiting 10 years to initiate a Constitutional Amendment, would not help the people of New York State. He argued vigilantly for the people of New York State and appealed to the members of the opposition party to look within to come to a consensus and vote in accordance with the “dictates of their principles.” Aboudoubaki used simple language and a distinguished demeanor to establish a justification for his position and worked to sway the opinions of every other member in the chamber. Aboudoubaki is from Togo, West Africa and served the National Model United Nations in Washington, D.C., representing Ghana, West Africa in the fall of 2010 and in the National Model United Nations in New York in spring 2011, representing Burkina Faso. He is the winner of the 2011 Non-Traditional Leader award.
