Over 1500 delegates from around the world represent over 190 countries in 25 different committees at the annual London International Model United Nations Conference - and 2015 we will be 14 out of them! Next to the delegation for Harvard WorldMUN 2015 in Seoul, South Korea, be.boosted newly established the LIMUN Program this year, offering 14 young people the chance to be shaped as future global leaders by being part of Team London 2015.
Model United Nations has been an important part of my life for a few years and as I read about the be.boosted program on MUNplanet, I couldn’t wait to apply. However, what made the be.boosted program so interesting for me is not only the possibility to serve as an eMUN-fellows delegate, but also to get an extensive training and coaching as well as the opportunity to network and learn from outstanding fellow young leaders. Being part of be.boosted means a lot more than just attending a MUN conference, beyond it means to grow personally as well as professionally and to be supported by an outstanding team on this way. Exactly the unique combination of an intensive coaching and the guidance of the be.boosted team is quite new but highly precious for me. Thanks to be.boosted I have the chance to get to know Model UN from totally new aspects as we learn about public speaking and contagious communication, successful negotiation, authentic leadership, networking, personal branding and much more.
So I would like to share my experiences from the first weeks of my fellowship. Team London started working and it couldn’t be more interesting and exciting. After getting to know each other we learned about efficient communication, we spoke about inspiring personalities as well as we trained body and diplomatic language in our first online meetings. What are the golden rules of diplomacy, how to structure a speech and how to connect to the audience are some out of many questions we already discussed during our weekly online sessions. Above we got initial insights into the general MUN procedure and had the honour to attend our first expert session together with Team Seoul, where we learned a lot from Dr. Erzsébet Csereklye about approaches to diversity.
All in all I can say it was an exceedingly successful start of our program the last weeks and by now I am already facing situations in my daily life where I remember what I have learned so far whether during group discussions, in situations in which I have to take over responsibility or also just during everyday conversations. Therefore I am overall looking forward to everything what will come up in the next time, especially to our first Munich offline weekend in January 2015.
So I can just say - Stay tuned! - Team London will definitely keep you up to date.
