Report by: Student Name and Class

Shuddhi Dalal-Gr. 9-This year I had an amazing experience at ABMUN. In comparison to last year, there were many improvements made this time which really enhanced the experience. My committee (HSC) was brimming with multiple crises which not only made  it interesting, but also genuinely helped me think on my feet. Our chairs were approachable and took all of our suggestions into consideration and also implemented them. The level of debate was extremely high with really good delegates present in the conference. The chairs made sure to keep committee intriguing by incessantly introducing updates. Overall, the MUN was super fun and there was so much to learn from not only the content of other delegates, but also the way they spoke and their confidence I have no complaints this year. Loved the MUN! 

Vedant Doshi-Gr. 9-The quality of debate at ABMUN 2019 was exceptional and surpassed my expectations.

Neer Mehta-Gr. 8- ABMUN was only my second MUN and in comparison to my first, it was organized much better and was more realistic.The chairs were very nice and the logistics and press were very active.

The committee I was in had a very persistent crisis update which was helpful for the flow. Lastly, the food was very yummy.
