The delegation of UUMUN consists of 17 delegates. Just as the other delegates, the board also trains their skills in speeching, lobbying and strategie during the year. Five delegates form the Board and the other twelve delegates are being placed in one of the three teams: Team Corporate Relations, Team Public Affairs or Team Content.
Each year, the Utrecht University Model United Nations delegation is assisted by one or two Faculty Advisors. They accompany the delegation to the conferences in Oxford and Harvard and assist them with advice and practical service. This year, Diede is our FA!
Being part of the 16th delegation was one of the highlights of my student life. Therefore, being part of delegation 17 is a great honour! As Faculty Advisor, I make sure that the transition from the previous to the next delegation goes smoothly. MUN has a lot of different sides to it. It is part speech, part lobby, and part social experiment, all mixed together in a prestigious contest of champions with students from all around the world. I am confident the new delegation will perform well, whether it be by winning a prize, or by reaching their personal goals in overcoming hardship and learning new skills.
We will go to Harvard, we shall see, and we shall conquer!
