Representing HKBU and served as the Head Delegate to participate in the international Model United Nations conferences (MUN) is an indispensable  part  of  my  university  life  and I have undoubtedly benefited much from these exposures, both socially  and culturally.

Throughout the journey of MUN, I have acquired a lot from it, but much more are yet to be acquired. Although I have been involved in MUN for years, it was my first pilgrimage to the UN Headquarters in New York. I could hardly forget the moments when I sat in the General Assembly Hall and pressed the buttons to cast the sacred votes on behalf of Estonia. One day in the future, I wish I could come back and work as a part of the UN, without the ‘M-’ ahead of it.
