Favorite Conference: AMMUN XVIII

When thinking about my passions, hobbies and interests, the first thing that comes to mind is my interest in international relation, and politics. Ever since I was young, I always found myself drawn to what was happening in the news, always interested in politics, and had a curiosity to find out more and learn more. When I attended my first MUN conference, AMMUN XVII, my passion towards conferences, debate, politics and international relations grew sturdier and sturdier. After attending my first MUN conference not only did I find myself more interested in world issues and politics, but I also noticed that there was an improvement in my character. Before participating in MUN, I was a very introverted and quiet person. I never really liked to speak in public or in front of a crowd. Through the conference, I was supported to talk publicly more, and speak up. I noticed after the conference that I felt more comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. Not only that, but I also grew an even bigger interest in the style of debate, international relations, and world issues, which was the reason I decided to continue my career path in international relations and world affairs. MUN aided me in defining my passions, interests and my part as a citizen of the future and gave me the opportunity to share my desire with others.
