It gives me great pleasure to be a part of the ninth edition of VIBGYORMUN, this time, as the Head of the Press Corps. I expect three days full of exciting debates and it’s our job to ensure you have something to take back with you to remember your time with us.
We live in uncertain times. The political climate is unstable and voices that long to be heard, voices that preach individuality or dare to defend it are being silenced. In a world where free speech is still a myth, standing up for what you believe in is paramount. With this conference, we find ourselves in a unique position with the privilege of being heard. Rise to the hustings, delegates! Dare to speak up! Use your voice; and while you do, we’ll be there championing you through ours.
While our work primarily revolves around our Press Release, La Voce, our team will also keep you updated on the happenings of the conference through various social media platforms so you don’t miss out on a single moment. For those joining the Press team, I urge you to actively participate and showcase your journalistic prowess.
Working in the Press Corps is not for the faint hearted. It means signing up for what can be a formidable task, especially for first-timers. It’s easy to be intimidated when you’re surrounded by a sea of loud voices, ideas being thrown around and unyielding deadlines. But once the storm settles, it’s no wonder that we love what we do. It’s creative, it’s demanding and it’s arguably the most dynamic role at the conference.
I look forward to working alongside all of you and I wish you all good luck.
The press is perhaps the most dynamic committee throughout the conference. Constantly lauded for its snoopiness and berated for its dramatic gossip, we’re the soul of VIBGYORMUN, constantly infusing life into the committee sessions of black and grey.
Though we are the smallest committee, by number, as any VIBGYOR MUN veteran would tell you, we are the strongest. We hold the power to write the story, document the moment, and be a part of each committee’s intimate moments, enabling each delegate to take home memories of the most happening three days of VIBGYORMUN.
That being said, it’s essential to be relentless, persevering, omnipresent and tough throughout the conference. After all, we are its eyes and ears, wielding our pens and cameras to perfectly capture the conference news. The Head of the Press Corps and I hope that VIBGYORMUN9 will be an enriching and memorable experience for all of you!
