I was thinking of applying for an academic conference, actually, any MUN, since I am in the end of my studies at Political Sciences school and I was searching for a "strong" experience. Fascinated by the motto "MEET WHERE THE CONTINENTS MEET" combining with the fact that I was looking for summer vacations, I felt it was a great opportunity. Some friends from school told me that there was an organized delegation and I joined them without second thoughts even though I barely knew my fellow students. We started by studying the rules of procedure and then with a mock session. When the time arrived and I learnt my country and my committee I was thrilled and terrified at the same time.
Commision on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) representing Russian Federation. Since, this was my first MUN experience as an academic student I had to try hard and study hard to do my best and I think I did because in the end I got an award as honorable mentioned delegate! Hours of reading the study guide and searching for advice in MUNplanet (by the way thank you guys!). But this in not the important part! The most important thing is the fact that I had the chance to meet amazing friends from many countries and enjoying my stay in Istanbul, a city so beautiful that you cannot even describe it. So, no words now, just photos!
