At the start of the conference I was a bit nervous like any first timer will be, but I challenged myself and set a goal of not being a quiet delegate. On the first day I talked more than I expected to and I’m proud of myself though sometimes I had questions to ask and I wanted to speak for the motion, but I shied away which I quite regret. It was a fun, new and interesting experience. It was funny seeing the many punishments delegates had to do like singing and dancing. I’m not surprised at all by the delegates input to the gossip box. I could barely remember the names of the people in my committee as I referred to all of them as delegates. I really enjoyed the three-day conference at the SOS MUN and I highly recommend everyone to join MUN club and attend the upcoming MUN conferences particularly ALAMAU in south Africa and IMUN in the USA.

As my first MUN, I must say I was a bit nervous because I didn’t know how to cope in arguments with other personalities. However, with the information I gathered from the prep sessions headed by Mr. Darko, Aunty Janet and the MUN leaders, I was able to confidently voice out my ideas with little blunder in my argument that thankfully landed me two awards. The experience I gathered from the 3-day conference is surely going to help me in my everyday life because I now acquire the attitude of wanting to be aware of what happens around me and possibly question them. I have improved my public speaking skills and I have acquired the ability to be a reflective thinker. I would definitely want to have this experience again and I am looking forward to participating in more conferences.

I think that throughout the past three days I spent at the MUN conference, I have learnt a lot. I have learnt how to research into issues further. I have also learnt how to communicate with other people, share ideas and also come together and work to meet a goal or to solve a problem. I think that the MUN conference is a conference that every High School student should attend, because it exposes you more to the world. It shows you the ethics of different countries, how hard people work together everyday despite their different cultures, religions or beliefs to solve global problems.
