"It was my first time at ... any MUN"
It was my first time at KAMUN, to be honest, at any MUN. I have joined IDSA just this semester, and things have kept speeding up ever since. KAMUN was definitely a peak.
As a beginner, I was often nervous, but loved it all the way! My heart was racing constantly during session, as I needed to gather the courage to speak up. There was even a time when being given the floor caught me by surprise, so I had to improvise a meaningful speech. Fortunately, we received a lot of help throughout the preparation, and were ready to take one many of the challenges even if we did not realise it. I felt great while working with all these enthusiastic people.
It was a humbling experience to see my peers struggle and overcome obstacles in order to contribute to the debate, just like how I did.
Taking on this trip with IDSA turned out to be quite an extraordinary journey, and I’m glad for it.
