My AMUN experience

Algeria Model United Nation -Second Edition 2015

Hello everyone, both AMUNers and non AMUNers. Below you will find a summery of my journey in this AMUN’s edition and a little bit more.

I have been recruited in the DAIS team in mid September as the Chairwoman of Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC), which made me both thrilled and honored by this responsibility. And now that I think about those moments, when it all started, I want to tell the old me that she just made the decision of her lifetime. I worked during the next few months with my delegates and as I was getting to know them I grow fond of how successful they were academically which challenged me to give more, and to work harder.

Then the real conference started, and I was amazed both by how organized the secretariat team were and how well prepared my delegates.

Now that it ended, I am on my laptop reflecting upon what it all meant. I think Algeria Model United Nation is far more than just a simulation it is an annual meeting for dreamers, being there made me feel home , understood and completely relaxed. The positive energy that was spreading through the air has made it impossible for anyone to frown.And I think the fact that you can gather youth from all over the country and have them know that they are not alone in their hopes and dreams and that there is people with the exact same vision as theirs do exist in real life, is so beautiful in itself.

On a personal level, this experience has given me a new perspective, and a better understanding of myself. I was strict and organized during the conference that led to my committee having a very smooth debate which is something I am very proud of. I developed my public speaking skills and also found a lot of sources of inspiration.Now I know that working on personal and social development is what I want to do for the rest of my life.

Looking forward to the future and what it brings, I am fully ready to work hard and smart to create a better world.

I’ll leave you with this quote, until we meet again.
