It's new and exciting
Start something new and turn your MUN career upside down for this one! Becoming a MUN Journalist was a unique experience back when I started at KULMUN, Leuven and well, what can I say. I went back to it! New and exciting also means that you get to experience the conference from a whole new angle. You are an observer to the debate, but at the same time, your writing may spark new ideas among your audience and help them get to better outcomes. Furthermore, you are learning so much about journalism, international relations and professional writing - all while being a the MUN! Public Speaking? No, creative writing is the new skill you will certainly acquire! And do not worry, this is exciting so do not fear to step up your game and apply as a journalist for your next conference!

MUN is there to experience the life of diplomats and the challenges they deal with. And MUN Media is there to experience what it can mean to become a journalist.
