Goal: To overcome my shyness and participate more in debates.
Model United Nations (MUN) always makes me feel nervous, but also eager to participate and, in a way, get it over with. i like debating, but it does put a lot of pressure on me: a normally reserved person when around people I do not know. However, I have already attended one other MUN conference in Dublin, so I know what to expect, which helps me calm down my nerves. Still, I am sure I will end up having fun, as I always do with the activities I am nervous about.
I expect the Royal Russell MUN conference to be similar to the Dublin conference I attended last year, although perhaps less serious. This is because the Royal Russell conference is seen by many as a conference for first-timers, so it will not be as demanding as Dublin, which was one of the largests in Europe. However, this does not mean that there will not be some very good debaters present, so I will try to do my best and speak out a few times during the debates.
My shyness and introverted personality will probably be my greatest problems, as I will have to overcome these aspects of my personality in order to contribute to the different debates that will take place. This will undoubtedly be very difficult for me, and I may not achieve this goal, but the important thing is that I tried hard and did my best.
