Alumni Story :  Lintar - Indonesia

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.

I was excited and nervous at the same time a few days before the event. Since this was my first time, I was really confused as to how the whole event worked. I did manage to read the ROP and understand some of the procedures but as the event started, I tried to analyse other people as to how they did it and got comfortable in midway. I managed to talk three times despite being really nervous and after the session finished, I felt a little regret since I did not talk more. I could’ve done better and could’ve at least gotten the most outstanding or honourable mention. It was a fun experience and I would never forget it.

As for best moment, everything was great except for the queue. Each and every moment in MUN was something else and they were good at their own thing. I couldn’t just compare and pick which was the best because everything combined together would create the best moments at AYIMUN. Like the time where different nationalities were dancing, exploring Bangkok, debating on a very serious topic, and sharing rooms with complete strangers that turned out to be some really good friends. All those moments together created a bigger moment that I would forever cherish and learn.

At AYIMUN 2018, I got a lot of social media followers, succeeded at overcoming my nervousness over stage anxiety and got to talk to people from all over the world. I also learned what it took to become the best delegate.

To all future delegates of AYIMUN, I would like to say that there is no such thing as something dumb to say. Just say what you think you want to say and always have confidence in it.

“It's never too late to become what you might have been.”
