November 2013. The very first edition of theModel United Nations of Malmö (MUNmö)was taking place in my university, and I was not part of it. Having most of my friends attending as delegates and knowing well the organizers and their capabilities did not change a thing: I simply was not interested in this type of event. Even the amazingly cheap participation fee that year and all that was offered in exchange (€10 (!!) for 4 days of food, unlimited coffee, night club entry) could not convince me to take my first step in the MUN world.
During the following months, I found myself drawn to MUNs, learning and reading more and more about the concept, while telling myself next time, I will participate, next time I will get my pizza!
All this would not have been possible without that MUN I did not attend, hence making it in a way the best conference I have 'attended'.
