Messages from Winners

Sathmi Dinanja

SLRMUN  was one of the best things that happened for me in 2022. I remember being anxious to apply and even trying to not participate even after applying since it was my first time participating at a Model United Nations Conference. But this fear was in vain. We were constantly guided and mentored by Rotaract Mora from the time we were registered. The practice debates that were held were able to make the intimidating “MUN conference” less intimidating and more fascinating for me. All the Ayyas and Akkis answered my endless queries and made me feel at ease about participating. At the conference I was able to become acquainted with amazing personalities and build  friendships with like-minded people. This MUN experience was an asset to my life.
