Our school got the opportunity to represent the Russian Federation and the Republic of Sierra Leone in numerous councils including: the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Special Conference and the Political committee. As well as some students being advocates and judges in the International Court of Justice, a completely new experience. So all I can say now is, hope to see you in person next year Berlin!

In my opinion, what makes MUN extra special is that you will get to learn and consider world issues taking place in the present moment that cannot be learned in school. Every time I participate in the conference, there are always some great people who push me up even further and that’s why I am obsessed with MUN. This year, I took part in BERMUN as the advocate of the United States of America with my partner Polina in the case of relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem.
Despite the fact that this was my third MUN conference, having participated in ICJ was a completely new experience for me which has greatly fortified my persuasion skills as well as a mental to go through with our side’s policy until the end even in a tough situation. Although our side was not granted to the final conclusion, I was truly grateful to have such an eloquent speaker to be my opponent, who was the advocate of Paletine, the winner of this year’s case. Her evidence lists were exceptionally strong and the way she pointed out our arguments was exceedingly accurate.
