There were smart diplomatic people standing before me that made me nervous on the first day. But on the last day, I was molded in a way that how to speak, stand and deal with the delegates and that has made me more confident person and has helped my overall self-esteem.  The best part of AMUNC was making lifetime friends and knowing the world culture around us. The six days long conference gave me a lot of exposure which would be a vital part of my career. I still remember this last phrase I’ve said in my farewell speech of committee “I want to do this for the rest of my life.”  As I’m being the Event Coordinator of SOPHEP I would love to implement the ideas in GIMUN’16 that could be ample experience for my community.  Thank you so much GIK Institute and honorable Rector Jehangir Bashar for the generous financial and moral support which made it possible for me to avail this wonderful opportunity.
