I do have one thing: the G(irls)20 Summit.
Designed G20 style, the G(irls)20 Summit brings together one delegate from each G20 country, plus a representative from the European and African Unions, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the MENA region. The final communiqué is presented to the G20 Leaders for their consideration.
In August 2014 I found myself in Sydney, Australia, representing my own country, Italy. In one week I went through lots of workshops and formal meetings, all converging in the final day, spent writing the communique: almost 11 hours in a room with the other delegates.
Was it all about the country I was representing and the final task? Definitely not, and this is where the G(irls)20 Summit becomes similar to any other MUN experience I’ve had. During these conferences we are so focused on incredibly difficult topics that we don’t realize what we’re actually doing. At the end of the conference it will hit us: we came out of our comfort zone and took a risk.
Whether you are a first-time MUNer or an experienced one, standing up in front of strangers to talk, trying to take part in the debate and expressing your opinion in an effective way is never easy. And there’s more: MUNs are made great by the people you work with, human experiences that always leave you with some nostalgia and a group of new, amazing friends!
After all, I'm not really that worried. Join me in New Delhi for TGIMUNC, I guarantee that it’s going to be an amazing experience!
