There is a famous saying in China, ‘ if you have never been to the Great Wall, you cannot become a real hero.’ Until you have had the experience of HMUN, you may not have realized your potential!
At the opening ceremony - you would see that even though the children were only 13 or 16 years old, they were already dressed up in suits and proper shoes. Their facial expression would make you feel like we were already in the UN General Conference Hall. Before the opening ceremony, many students began to discuss whether they belonged to the same committee and whether the position paper was consistent. For those students who attended the conference for the first time, they met with so many proactive national representatives，they were a bit embarrassed, but the real test would be coming soon!
All the students who attended the meeting for the first time gave us the same feedback：Some delegates are too excellent to make us feel much pressure! That’s right, in such a high level HMUN, you will encounter strong opponents with clear thinking and good preparation. Their excellence is amazing and inspiring! This evening, Yanting and Simon told us that they gave speech six times today and had successfully attracted other delegates to agree with them. This is the second time that they participated in HMUN and they prepared for a long time in this team. On the way to Beijing and even during the short break in the hotel lobby, they still discussed each other's debate skills and kept collecting information.
Every March in Beijing, more than 1,500 of the best students from different countries will participate in the HMUN. They come from major international schools and excellent foreign language schools. But why?
A teacher who has studied the HMUN for more than 10 years told us: The real helpful thing of attending HMUN is to have a positive impact on people for the entire experience of the HMUN! When you are surrounded by an excellent environment, you will also be influenced by such people who behave well and have a good influence. They have commonality of courtesy and humility, wise and demeanor, they are persistent and willing to explore. Therefore, in the HMUN, such an environment will force the children to rapidly grow and to be stronger rapidly. For example: 15 minutes to come out the project case; 3 minutes for free question and answer; 1 minute to state the point of view! Every hammer strike of the presidium is testing the children’s resilience.
Since the afternoon, you didn’t need to open the door to see the children, because most of the delegates have started to come out and discuss their resolutions. The HMUN is a kind of role play. Each committee will pass only one motion, but from 3 or 4 different motions are raised by other teams. To be a leader and stand out in the whole committee is a really hard work. You may think your working plan was so perfect that you can get more support. Since other delegates have to consider the flexibility of the working plan, the national benefit and even the negotiating skills, so, to be a well-round person is not an easy job!
In the evening, many students told us that they made their first public speech today. Congratulations to them, they finished their first trial.
the Global village activity-we prepared CAIS gifts and our dance show.
You can imagine the screaming, applause and cheering. That is the best
way to release pressure for this competition.
Isabelle, Sarah and Cassidy cheered and cried during the closing ceremony.
“ Those delegates who gave us big pressure in the committee are now looking so lovely. Maybe you don't believe it, we only know each other for 4 days, but to me, that is a deep friendship. Some delegates set so many difficulties for us, we cannot even fall to sleep…but at this moment, I suddenly feel lonely and 4 days ago, we didn’t even have a good chance to say “Hi”, but 4 days later, I want to say “Goodbye” to my dear friends.”
