22nd of March and BISMUN is officially here. All over the place you could see enthusiastic people ready to assume their roles as delegates and to turn this MUN into one of their best experiences.
Among all this participants it happened for me to come across with the delegate of Spain at the United Nations Environment Programme. Coming all over the way from Ethiopia, the delegate of Spain was visiting for the first time Europe and what a better moment she could have chosen than to take part to the BISMUN 2017.
What motivated the distinguished delegate to take part to this conference was, in her own words, mainly the fact that it would be interesting to discover the way such an event is carried out and goes on in other country than her own, given the fact that back in Ethiopia our delegate has also been taking part to several Model United Nations Conferences.
This MUN Conference would be the third one for our delegate to and as far as I could see, there was plenty of enthusiasm that convinced me of the fact that our delegate will make the best out of it.
The delegate of Pakistan to the ECOSOC, a role assumed by a very enthusiastic Romanian high school student, came to Bucharest to take part to BISMUN with the conviction that, in his words, MUN represents the best experience in Romania.
As expected, this was not the first time our delegate was taking part to such an event. Part of his motivation to take part to this conference was due to the fact that previous experience guided him to better scheduling and better organized work.
As far as the expectations regarding BISMUN are concerned, the delegate of Pakistan to the ECOSOC mentioned the fact that he is ready to socialize and meet new people and also to clash in debates and fruitful conversations during the conference.
Coming from Greece and representing New Zeeland in the ECOSOC, our distinguished delegate was convinced by her friends to take part to this conference and this thing proves, once again, the role Model United Nations Conferences plays for the young generations in assuming and spreading UN values.
As a student at Law, our delegate admitted the fact that the International Relations represents an area of which she is really interested in and this is a direct link to the reasons for which she has chosen to take part to BISMUN. Nonetheless, the topic of the debate was another aspect that stimulated our delegate to take part to this conference and it is about the violence against women in conflict zones that, most of all, grabbed the attention of our delegate. Given the relevance of the topic, she expressed its enthusiasm regarding her participation to the event, hoping that a fruitful debate will come out.
