This is officially my last article here at MUNPLANET INSIDER, and I must say it is going to be a rather nostalgic and emotional one.
I discovered MUNPlanet, while looking for ideas as to how to write a position paper and while trying to understand what MUN actually was, and few months in, I instantly fell in love with this site, because it has so much to offer.
On one such day, I saw that they were giving opportunities to budding writers, and I wasn't much of a writer, but I applied for it anyways.
Few days, down the lane, (having forgotten about this completely), I received a mail, with the details, and I honestly could not believe it! This meant a great deal to me.
Initially, I didn't know how and what to write, as I am not an actual full fledged writer, it was challenging and NOT AN EASY TASK. To be able to pen your thoughts into words, to voice out your opinion in writing form, and connect with people. It surely was not easy.
I was always a voracious reader. And that helped me a lot. English is a subject I am very passionate about since my school days, and even today it fascinates me a lot, so that helped me a lot, too.
After writing a couple of articles, I observed that writing is something that is not easy, it is underrated and underestimated a lot in this world. There is immense amount of effort that goes into writing a single article, I cannot imagine how authors write books. A big big salute to them. And it doesn't stop with just typing it all out, one has to edit it, choose fonts, and many more.
Writing does change you as a person, it gives you a lot of perspective, and a broader way of looking at things. Nowadays, when I read an article, it's not just reading, I usually am able to visualize the kind of effort the person has put into it.
MUNPLANET has definitely given me a lot. And it also gives one recognition by giving them a certificate, and getting a certificate from such a huge well acclaimed website, is definitely not a small thing.
I consider myself lucky to have been a part of this project. Some of my articles also trended in the front page, which instilled a lot of confidence into me.
This journey, would have not been possible, had it not been for the immense support and guidance offered to me by the content manager of MUNPLANET, and most importantly my good friend, Mr Pavle Lazarevic. He has been an amazing guide through this wonderful journey, answering all my queries, and helping me out in a big way ! So thank you very much Pavle!
And finally, I thank MUNPLANET, from the bottom of my heart, for giving me this priceless opportunity! I thank all the people who have taken out their time to read my articles and give me their valuable feedback. I am overwhelmed by emotions right now. No words can express what I feel at the moment.
Thank You very much for today I can call myself a writer! Thank You for giving me an identity!
I look forward to continue being associated with MUNPLANET in the future.
Till then, signing off for one last time,
This is Sruthi Ranganathan, for MUNPLANET INSIDER.
