My experience started at the moment I decide to participate in MUN competitions. I have always loved to be involved in Model United Nations, now that I got the opportunity to go as a delegate with my school. I felt as if I was an ambassador and the fact that I have to represent a country is exciting, because you are working for that country and you are trying to do everything to make your country noticed. I feel it is a transformative experience that deepens the understanding of the participants about the world and their place in it. Delegates emerge from this activity with an open mind, fresh ideas and new friends. With the skills they develop in speaking, writing resolutions, negotiation and diplomacy, it is not surprising that many of us then become community leaders, and in the future global involved. I encourage all students that have the opportunity to attend to these competitions to do it. It is an experience that in the future you can actually serve in. Now it may be learning and working towards a role, but then that could be part of your future. Thanks to this practical experience I am feeling prepared and it makes me love more my major and field more.
