“I joined MUN as a junior in the ICC committee. Technically, this was my second attempt at MUN because I was a part of the club in freshman year, but I was so intimidated by all of the incredibly well-spoken people that I never went to another meeting. After doing YAG for one year, I decided to take the leap and do MUN and it was one of the best decisions of my high school career.

My favorite MUN memory was in ICC last year on the last day of conference. We had finished all of our cases, so our chair decided to give us some fun cases to deliberate over off of the top of our heads. My case was defending Robert McNamara and the use of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. We had twenty minutes to research as much as possible before presenting our case. It was easily some of the most fun I’ve had debating because you had to constantly think on your feet and be prepared for anything. I got to work with delegates that I hadn’t really spoken to and we were luckily able to dismiss almost all of the charges.”
