According to the dictionary, enthusiasm represents a feeling of energetic interest in a particular subject or activity and an eagerness to be involved in it.
Well, after I met Jasmine Sutherland – coming from the USA and representing China in the ECOSOC Committee – I realized that, actually, she is the definition for enthusiasm, being more than thrilled to be part of BISMUN 2017.
Asked about her expectations regarding this edition, the 9th, she told us that she thinks it will be very professional, even though she never participated before at other editions of BISMUN. That doesn’t mean she is a stranger to the MUN Conferences, because she recalls a few events of this kind in which she participated, some of which were international, concluding that this edition of BISMUN marks her 6th conference.
I also tried to find out what does she think makes this particular Conference stand out, what made her choose it. I think what made us choose it was the fact that Bucharest is not somewhere where most people think to go when they think of Europe, so they wanted to take their delegation somewhere where they wouldn’t normally go, in order for them to experience this part of Europe as well. – was the answer which made me smile not only with my mouth, but with my heart, too.
The theme was another aspect of this edition of BiSMUN which made her so happy, confessing that she really likes it, especially because she is representing China.
All in all, I’d like to thank Jasmine one more time for answering all of my questions and for the great vibes that she’s spreading and, also, to welcome her to the BISMUN family!
