Favorite Conference: AMMUN XVIII


Growing up I was always interested in discussions. Every family gathering, I would join discussions with my aunts and uncles, eager to learn things and voice my opinion. When I first heard of MUN I knew this would be a safe space were I would get to do something like that. I started my MUN journey in HRC. I went to my first conference not knowing anything, but the more conferences I did the more I learned. HRC has been a big part of my Mun journey. It is the forum that I have done the most. Even though I have done other forums like the security council and the courts, but HRC was always my favorite. It had many delegates which led to heated and interesting debates. Over the course of the past few years my interest in MUN turned into a passion. MUN was something that I strived to excel at. MUN has helped gain confidence, improve my public speaking skills, and reduce my social anxiety. Now thanks to MUN, I can declare my stances on topic clearer, discuss and debate better and socialize more. My goal in life to make a change in the world and use my voice, MUN was the correct path to do that, I do not regret it one bit.
