I came to know TIMUN during my first year of Law school, and the concept of MUN was not familiar at the time. The experience was new, and I actually missed the applications deadline! but still, I decided to attend the conference anyway in order to understand the concept and be prepared to apply the following year. And I was NOT disappointed! In fact, I was so eager to be part of this amazing new experience that I actually convinced the organizers to fill in for another delegate who dropped out last minute. And there I was, the "Distinguished Delegate of Japan" in the ECOSOC, and even though I had no interest in economics or prior knowledge of the topic at hand, I managed to do my research and got to co-sponsor a draft resolution (I know, right!).
That one-day-experience ended up in a five-year MUN career, between chairing and organizing both local and international conferences, and led to an amazing network of equally passionate MUNers who would get it when I joke about "moderated caucus", "informal informal informal consultations", or "remaining actively seized on the matter" without giving me the "what are you talking about" look! :D
