Every good envoy knows that when being in a new city, one does a lot of travelling and gives up sleep, especially when you are part of an official delegation. Our participants successfully passed the test of the capital’s traffic and arrived, bright and shiny at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at 7 P.M sharp.
The diplomatic reception started with the speech of Secretary of State Mr. Dan Neculăescu who encouraged the participants to bring their contribution towards the reform of the Ministry and advised them to get to know the world around them , because one day, the decision making process will be passed to us. This makes it of the utmost importance to keep on networking and stay engaged. This is because trustworthy relations are crucial in finding a consensus.
Next to address the public was the president of UN Youth Association, Mr. Valentin Florea, who expressed his hope that the works of the committees will be presented to the international institutions and the proposed suggestions will be taken into consideration.
Somewhere between exquisite dresses, glasses of champagne and the fuss, the high heels obliged our classy and fabulous ladies to stand up for the first part of the reception, but after the things settled, they bloomed like fresh flowers and started taking pictures, chat and…basically be amazing. Now that I’m thinking about it, maybe their excitement had something to do with the cake? Hmm, we will never know for sure.
Nevertheless, the highlight of the night was when the chairpersons took over the microphones and summoned the delegates for the group committee photos. Of course, that was also the time when euphoria stroked and the prestigious reception room of the MFA witnessed the tremendous power of the very large and enthusiastic UN youth family (and the shouts of the Committees: DISEC, SC, DISEC, SC, ECOSOC, ECOSOC) .
