Alumni Story :  Arvind Goyal - India

Hello, I’m so glad to have this opportunity to tell my story starting from how I joined AYIMUN, my best moment, the things I got, and my messages for future delegates; every single thing will surely open up your eyes and mind towards the importance of MUN.

In the beginning, I was quite anxious and a bit scared about getting out of my country, flying all the way to Thailand all alone. Little did I know that there was a new family in the form of new friends waiting for me on the other side. From the airport itself, my excitement reached its peak with so many people around the globe getting together, acknowledging each other. It was all fun and amazing beyond my expectations.

To me, the best moment was the one when one of my co-delegate dared me to dance in front of the whole council which I accepted it with open heart, performing my traditional Punjabi Bhangra was my pleasure. This was indeed amazing!

The hotel I stayed in and the conference I attended, were pretty inspiring and cool. The fun I had with my friends near the poolside, spending hours discussing global agenda in the hall to the hours of heart-robbing party after the event, Bangkok City Tour with new things to explore that awaken all my senses. If one wish could come true, all I wanted was to go back to these marvellous days of me and AYIMUN. I want to thank AYIMUN for giving me the best 3 days of my life.

AYIMUN also helped me to get out of my comfort zone, additionally the friends and the another family I found there were the best part. Networking and public speaking are the two best values about attending such conference. It gave me the best 3 days of my life while learning global agendas to partying together with my new friends. Enhancing skills in leadership, teamwork, expository and persuasive writing, debating and negotiations; I also learnt the significance of these skills for personal development and a successful future. With AYIMUN, you will not only enhance your network but you will get a chance to explore yourself in a new way. Don’t lose this opportunity. See you at AYIMUN 2019!

“I want to pass the wisdom and vision I carry to the rest of the people;
to be the change they want to see in this world.”
