Who are you and where are you from?
I’m Jana, I’m from Oldenburg and I’m going to the Altes Gymnasium Oldenburg. I represent Canada in the Arctic Council.
Is this your first time participating in the OLMUN?
Yes, it’s my first time.
How did you get to know the OLMUN?
I think it was through friends and social media. Also, some teachers of mine provided information about the OLMUN.
What was your motivation for applying as a delegate?
I’m really interested in politics and also history, so I think it’s a really good opportunity to get to know what is going on in real politics but this is like a game, so you can learn a lot and you do not have any obligations, so it’s more free and more relaxed.
What was the most challenging part about being a delegate?
I think it’s being nervous about talking in front of other people, especially in English or having to go to the front. But I think if you have done this once then you know it really doesn’t matter. There’s nobody who would punish you if you got a word wrong or something else, so that was really challenging but you overcome that.
What has been your favourite OLMUN experience/ memory so far?
The singing and karaoke in our committee and the other punishments. I think that was really funny. But also our sessions, talking about the resolutions and debating, I enjoyed that a lot.
