Getting “NEIMUNed” could be pretty much the gist of the unending hype of most young leaders. I had been wanting to be NEIMUNed for a good amount of time (since 2015 to be precise), but found it hard to be a part of it until 2017, when I had participated as a delegate. Back then, the experience was like a drive through, where I had to sit back in my car (figuratively) and try to observe and adapt to the menus (agendas) laid out. Once you get the hang of it all, you start understanding the true meaning of ‘empathy’; the committee sessions, the research, the drafting of the resolution - everything drags you into your purpose in life, your contribution towards the society (locally, nationally and globally), you start questioning yourself “Have you done enough?” “Have you done at least a bit?”. Returning to NEIMUN in 2018 as a Secretariat changed my entire perspective; I realised it is not just about having a diplomatic discussion on world issues and taking action; the effort and time you put into organising and managing one among the most prominent conferences create a major impact on your own personality development. You start seeing things differently and eventually get the impulse of doing better in life, carrying along with you all the lovely memories and relationships built. From hustling to get things done to meet the deadline, to conference calls, to late night meetings, to unbalanced meals and sleep, to roaring and clacking at untimely hours, all leaves but good bonding with like-minded people, creating a better social life. Will I be a part of NEIMUN in the coming years? In my heart, always of course. In 2019? Why don’t you join the family and find out?
