I’ve been searching for the best way to get to know people, and it’s through having a debate with them.

Being in a model Knesset simulation gave me the chance to express my point of view about the Nation state law and the status of minorities as a Palestinian living in Israel. People with different thoughts, ideas and backgrounds were in the same committee trying to explain what they want or what they are hoping for.

We had disagreements because of our different perspectives, but we all agreed on Peace. Which means we’ve done the first step as young leaders who are willing to do more for this world.

MUN has helped me to understand the principle of ”if you judge people you have no time to love them”. I will judge people by the content of their character and by knowing them as a human being, regardless their nationality, religion and beliefs.

Bashaer MUN was a good conference to start with this year, and I’m aspiring to achieve more on the next conferences.
