Favorite Conference: AMMUN XVI

Ever since joining my first MUN conference in the eighth grade, I have developed a growing interest in the world of politics and international affairs. This interest only continued to grow as I began to dedicate more of my time into these conferences, especially AMMUN, as I know that the time I invest would not go to waste. MUN as a whole has impacted my life drastically, as with every conference I attend I improve my public speaking skills, my social skills, and my overall confidence. However, what truly fueled my passion, and changed the way in which I view the world, was my second AMMUN experience. Despite having done the conference the year before, this experience played the largest role in shaping my MUN persona, as being more experienced, I was able to put my newfound skills into action on the podium of the Security Council, allowing me to grow into someone my younger self would have never thought I was capable of becoming. There is no other conference like AMMUN, for in all the national and international conferences I have attended over the years, I have yet to see debate like that of which I have witnessed at AMMUN, where the experienced are challenged and the inexperienced are encouraged. It is an experience that will leave you with valuable skills and unforgettable memories.

 

Thank you

Sincerely

Noura Matalka

President of the Security Council
