At my age, a very few people can genuinely claim that they
have had a life changing experience. After  
  organizing the finest Model United Nations conference
(MUN) in my city last summer, I became one of those fortunate people to have
experienced a life changing academic event. About 20 weeks of meeting business
executives, working with teammates throughout the night perfecting our strategy
and courses of action, preparing and communicating the sponsorship proposals
and ideas, rigorously marketing at all platforms…none of this was advertised on
the social media site of Ahmedabad Youth Model United Nations or communicated
to anyone, but all of this is what made it uniquely meaningful to me.

Organizing such a big event was indeed very difficult. The
main motto of Ahmedabad Youth Model United nations was not to engage in the
rhetoric, but actually make a legitimate change. In order to distinguish this
conference from others, I came up with a method to contribute a portion of our
proceeds to a humanitarian cause under which we donated a sum to a United
Nations affiliated agency with a view to contributing to the very organization
that we aspire to emulate. We used our method to contribute a certain fixed
amount to ShareTheMeal every month, a non-profit initiative of the United
Nations World Food Programme. Apart from that, we also contributed a certain
portion of our proceeds to United Nations High commission for refugees. What
we’re doing here in the name of MUN is not just discussing and deliberating,
eating good food, having a nice venue and wearing fancy clothes, what we are
doing is building our future and finding out our passion. Meeting educators,
executives and entrepreneurs while organizing this conference broadened by
knowledge of business and I was able to relate that very well to what I was
doing. I vividly remember the time when things got haywire and we reached a
point where we considered cancelling this event, but the way I was naturally
able to step up and pull of this conference, that to making it the finest
conference of the circuit, I was very certain that I would be able to very well
distinguish myself in a field of equally qualified and eager peers.

Despite the hardships I faced during this conference, I
established really great friendships with my teammates and the delegates
participating in that conference. I was also able to meet and connect with
people from far reaching places, such as Africa and Bangladesh. The exposure
which I have got is unparalleled and the lessons of hard work, compassion and
team work were definitely the cynosure which, with surety,  I can tell made me a better person than I was
before. The desire to constantly better this event and make it the most unique
spurred my entrepreneurial abilities and helped me find out my passion. I
wanted to devote my life to something bigger than me, and this particular
conference provided me the kick start I needed.

I knew that this experience had changed me forever, for not
only did I go beyond the purview of my responsibilities and help this event be
an immense success, but also I was able to find my entrepreneurial and business
like abilities which sparked a domino effect on my future plans. This was the
turning point of my life. I found my passion. This is what I want to do for the
rest of my life. Exploring and honing my business and entrepreneurial skills
was intimidating initially, yet with creativity, hard work and an unparalleled
group dynamic of cooperation, this experience cemented my passion for business
and opened grand doors of opportunity.
