Ideja Efendija

Co-chairperson Of General Assembly 1



If I were to say anything to the EAMUN programme, it would be thank you. Thank you for teaching me that I have a voice, which cannot and should not be muted. That to be heard, I have to speak. But to be listened to I have to speak with confidence and passion. These past five years participating in the MUN programme have attended some of the most nurturing and enriching years of my life, moulding me into the person I am today. Going into it as a shy, timid 10-year-old little girl, I had no idea the impact it would have on my life. How each year I joined I would push another limit, be it as small as speaking at the podium, to chairing at the best of my ability. This programme pushes you to come out of your comfort zone and do THAT thing you were scared to do. Not only does it give you a forum to discuss world issues and their solutions with such passionate and determined individuals who have diverse perspectives and backgrounds, it grants you a forum to grow and break any mental walls that you had built. It enables you to come out of the experience an enhanced version of whom you were when you walked through those flagpoles for the first time. I’m profoundly appreciative for these past five years and what they have taught me as well as being able to come out of them as the Co-Chair of General Assembly 1, one of my goals since I joined the programme. I have no doubt that in joining the programme yourself, you will be as grateful as I am.
