Favorite Conference: AMMUN XVII

When I first joined MUN in the eighth grade, I barely knew anything about it, and it seemed like a scary, intimidating thing that would not be fun at all. My first MUN experience was AMMUN. I was in GA6, which is a very big forum, meaning I was very intimidated and did not want to participate. When I finally spoke in front of the forum, I realized how enjoyable it can actually be. From then on, my passion for MUN, and AMMUN in specific only grew. AMMUN XVII was my first court experience and was the conference that started my love for courts. My confidence grew, my speaking skills developed, and I learned a lot about myself. I am still learning new things; every experience enhances my skills and knowledge. Not only is it beneficial, but every conference is extremely fun. Every AMMUN conference seems to top the previous one. I am thrilled to be a part of such a hard-working, excellent team this year, and I cannot wait to see what I will learn in AMMUN XIX.
