YMUN was an amazing experience! It was run by Yale University and was held in Beijing. Each delegate had to represent a country and was assigned a committee based on the real United Nations Committees. My country was the Russian Federation and my committee was the United Nations Development Committee. I was the youngest delegate from overseas. It was scary at first but I met a lot of other students. In my first meeting I mainly just listened so I could get an idea of what was going on. Then when I understood a bit better I had a go at talking in front of my committee. By the third day I was able to share confidently in front of my committee. Overall I really enjoyed going and I recommend MUN to any Secondary School student who is interested in global issues!
