Favourite Conference: AMMUN XVII


From a young age growing up watching the news, I have always had an interest towards global politics and the affairs of the world, but I never really understood what it meant or how anything worked. However, from my very first MUN experience, AMMUN XVI, my passion and dedication towards Model United Nations conferences, global politics and debate only grew stronger and stronger. Ever since then, I made it a priority to attend every Model UN conference I possibly could and achieve as many awards as possible. However, throughout my vast experience in the MUN world, I came to notice that awards do not mean anything. What really matters and what truly interests me about MUN are the opportunities I am offered to further develop myself as a whole in many different ways. Whether it be my leadership and public speaking skills or my social and debating skills, MUN was always an opportunity for me to learn more and discover what I could do. However, what interests me the most about MUN is just the general process in which delegates get to exchange different opinions and perspectives and debate them as well as offer and propose plausible solutions for the topic at hand.
