This was the first MUN conference that I have ever attended. This wasn’t a normal MUN conference because this was a 4 day event and was hosted by a famous university, Yale.
I really enjoyed the committee sessions. Maybe it was just my council that was amazing, but in general, I think all the committee sessions were brilliant. My council was the UNSC (United Nations Security Council). I didn’t know at first when I was assigned to take that position, but later on my fellow delegates in the committee told me that the Security Council is one of the hardest councils to be part of.
Being part of the Security Council, there was a lot of pressure put on us, but without the pressure it wouldn’t have been as much fun!
It was one of the best events of my life! The Security Council was the only council I’ve ever been part of, but I’m fairly sure that being part of an MUN conference is one of the best things you can do in your school life.
The Yale MUN conference was extremely realistic (and serious too) whilst also being fun. Undoubtedly, it is not a joke and you have to take things very seriously, you cannot start World War Three for no reason, but for that weekend you have as much power as your president and can make nearly any decision, which is really exciting.
I will definitely be taking part in more MUN conferences in the future and would recommend it to anyone!
