The first day of the BerMUN conference was great. The speakers knew what they were talking about and some of the students had obviously practiced while others stumbled. It was serious, it was hilarious, and there was the BerMUN spirit in the air. The teenage habits did not hide in time when professionalism was highly required but it was perfect. The first two speakers were adults and their speeches were LONG. It was a difficult task for me to stay completely awake for the first one for some unknown reason. It was however easier when I started to engage myself with what was being talked about that I found it easier. A lot of the people also found it difficult to stay awake but personally, I regret dozing off a few times because I believe there were some information that would have been of great help. This is because, before the power of sleep almost engulfed me, I WAS taking good notes and ideas were coming to my mind. It was a strange feeling to suddenly become sleepy. Anyway, Gina as the Political Committee Delegate did a great job in her speech. She was excellent in stressing the position of the Country of Haiti that we were representing. The opening was great. I met some more people, made quick and useful alliances and enjoyed a thick orange juice and cake lunch. It was an awesome experience to be officially part of BerMUN. I had fun and from what I saw and heard, everyone present had fun too.
