MUN Value: MUN is definitely the best experience I have had during my school life. It opens opportunity to every single person to develop themselves in many aspects. MUN helped me to understand politics deeper and gain knowledge about current world issues. Also, I made a lot of friends all around the world that I am still in touch with and meet sometimes. It develops you personally in areas like leadership traits, speaking in front of the Public, and debating against others on important issues. My word to the newcomers: use your time to attend as many conferences as you can, because if not, you will regret it later!

MUN Value: Model United Nations (MUN) has become an inseparable part of my life. With MUN I discovered a totally different world, a world that I never new existed. I feel like every single conference that I have participated in has instantly started a new chapter in my life. I really am indeed grateful that back in 2014 I had the opportunity to join the MUN Club in my school and become a part of this unforgettable journey which has lasted until this very day. I can wholeheartedly say that enrolling in the MUN Club was one of the best decisions I have made in my life because little did I know back then that MUN was going to open up so many doors and opportunities for me. MUN is more than just my hobby; it is already a part of me and has shaped me into a completely different person. Just by participating as a delegate, I’ve established a different point of view and now I look at everything from a completely different perspective. MUN gave me a profound insight into world politics and the art of diplomacy. If you are fortunate enough to have an opportunity to join MUN, do not miss it because it is indeed the experience of a lifetime!

Value of MUN: MUN was one of the most important experiences in my life so far as it taught me how to face the world (literally and metaphorically). It was extremely interesting to look into a country’s culture and politics. Moreover it was unbelievably fun, yet challenging, to put aside all of your views and ideals and take on a role of a delegate from a country and express its position not only objectively, but also passionately. MUN taught me vital skills such as the ability to speak and persuade, to vastly perform critical analysis of a situation and to express my arguments precisely in a diplomatic manner. It helped a lot so far in my life and I am convinced it will have a significant impact on my future.
