What motivates you to stay involved in United Netherlands? “As a delegate and as a board member, I have experienced that the most valuable aspect of UNL is its people. Very cliché, but also very true. I count some UNL’ers among my best friends, and have time and again been inspired by people that I have met within UNL. That has motivated me to stay involved after my time as a delegate. Since UNL is approaching its 20th anniversary, UNL has a very extensive alumni network with people with a diverse range of careers. To fully use the potential of this network, it is important to have events and initiatives that bring people from different delegations together. That is what I am aiming for as president of the aMUNli association. This way, I hope to strengthen the UNL community.”- Koen Donatz (President aMUNli association) Want to know more about our organization? Check out our website: www.unitednetherlands.org/. 💙 ...

As a current delegate, what has been your biggest highlight of the program so far? “The UNMD/Delegation Program has helped me immensely with my personal and professional development. At the beginning of the program, I remember I was nervous when it came to doing impromptu speeches. After a few MUN practices, I felt more comfortable and confident in what I had to say. After every speech, I was embraced and received encouraging words from my peers. With more practice, I realized how important it is to use rhetorics and silences in public speaking. I also value the interpersonal connections and friendships made with my peers. In that sense, my biggest highlight involves learning public speaking skills and forming interpersonal relationships. Both of these personal and professional skills have helped me significantly in my day-to-day activities and participating in MUNs.”- Dominique Lopez (Delegation, 2021-2022)Want to know more about the Delegation program?

What do you like most about doing a board year at United Netherlands?“Doing a board year at UNL gives me the opportunity to meet so many inspiring people from all over the world. Not only throughout the delegation and the UNMD program, but also through the communication with other organizations and parties. I get a lot of energy from the people around me, so being surrounded by so many dedicated and passionate people creates a perfect work atmosphere for me. Furthermore, I truly enjoy organizing the logistics for the conferences and for the delegation. When everything goes according to plan, it serves as the cherry on top of my experience.” - Roos van Ewijk (Event Manager, Board 2021-2022)Want to know more about United Netherlands, our programs, and positions?
