Hi! I'm Annikah from the Philippines and I have been nominated as a delegate to attend the International Leaders Model United Nations (ILMUN) 2019. This amazing opportunity will be held at January 30-February 2, 2019. I am extremely excited about this educational simulation and academic activity which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations in UN Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand.
As an individual, I always thought that I can't do anything for anyone, nor can I make a difference in the world but as I got older, I learned that even small things matter. And as a Development Communication student, I hope to give voice to the marginalized and be a catalyst of change. Through this opportunity, I hope to enhance my knowledge on societal issues and encourage people, especially the youth- to create a more inclusive society even through small steps.
However, the cost of the program and airfare is more than my parents and I can contribute, so I'm asking for your help. ILMUN is a once in a lifetime opportunity. As a National Youth Delegate, I will be recognized as one of the most promising young leaders in diplomatic skill and will join others from across the region to share in this unique experience. I will attend educational seminars, attend speeches by representatives of United Nations and be challenged to work with my peers through simulations and group discussions. In addition to this amazing experience, I will also get one college credit for my work. I will develop my leadership skills and gain into the issues surrounding culture and tourism promotion. You can find more detailed information about the selection process and conference on their website http://ilmun.org
I would greatly appreciate that you might be able to give me. If you would like to sponsor me, it will go directly to my travel and conference registration fund. Thank you in advance for any support you can provide.
