VUBMUN Alumni


What Our Alumni Say ?

“Joining VUBMUN was not an easy decision for me, loading myself with hard work and effort during my freshmen year is what I was concerned about, but gratefully enough, it was definitely worth it, the support that we get from the board and other team members had made it way manageable. Improving public speaking, negotiation, debate, leadership, & research skills are just a few of the skills that we have acquired. Friendships, knowledge, world-wide connections & memories are what we build here at VUBMUN.”
— Elias Sahlieh
“I never expected to get this much out of just one year of MUN experience. Confidence, knowledge, friends & most of all unforgettable memories. I always joke with friends now that we can switch to “MUN-mode” whenever we have to perform in university or in a professional setting. The whole experience gives you the skills you need to excel and really stand out.”
— Daan Pierson
“I joined VUBMUN to get out of my comfort zone. I must say that participating in MUNs has taught me more than I could have ever imagined! Apart from the expected skills like public speaking, negotiating and writing, I also improved my leadership skills, became a faster learner, and discovered many new interests. Being part of VUBMUN really did help me become my best self. The skills I developed definitely helped my in my professional and personal life later on.”
— Karle De Volder
“I never knew that Sher was honourable, Albanians are as lovely as they are difficult, and that Armenia is actually a country. There are things like the nine-dash line that, for better or worse, I will always remember.”
— Loyle Wesly Campbell
“By going through the difficult moments, and moving on despite so many setbacks, by not taking the easy path and backstabbing your colleges, by not giving up on your core values even with running the risk of losing, by looking for the common ground for the benefit of all, you end up a new person, a potential leader that the world so much needs.”
— Andrei Ratcu
