I am the type of person to just go with the flow, and jump into things not fully knowing what I am jumping into.  So once I found out that I was accepted into the class, I was not prepared at all.  I had an idea of what went on at the United Nations, but I never knew what actually happened during the conferences.  So I wanted to experience it myself. I also wanted do a little bit of research to see if I would want to strive for a carer at the United Nations.  There was a lot of research and work involved, and it was also an epic emotional roller coaster ride that had a lot of bumps, loops, and drops.  But in the end, it was a very rewarding experience for us all.

My experience at Model United Nations was absolutely amazing.  It was hard and frustrating at times, but in the end, it always worked out.  Thank goodness for my partner in crime, Robert Premus.  Our personalities complemented each other very well.  It was an absolute pleasure working with him, and the other schools at the conference.  I would recommend anyone who finds this intriguing to give it a try.  I discovered a lot about myself, my personality, and how to be more diplomatic towards certain situations.  You meet a lot of new people and create a connection with the other schools, but most importantly, you create strong bonds with your partner and your classmates.  Thus forming one big MUN family.
