United Kingdom is the 1st dream country of mine. I can’t tell exactly why… but since i was a child, i really wanted to go there. Most of the actors and actresses and also some musicians that i love are from UK. my favourite broadway songs are made by Andrew Lloyd Webber who is british. I think i just have a connection with this country. =D
So, it began when i saw some of my friends were doing Model United Nations abroad and i want to do that too! I was so curious about the MUN, and i think it’s gonna be so cool to know many students from other countries and make friends to them through the positive events such as MUN. well, the first time i went abroad is to Prague to attend the International choir competition. It was so fun! But somehow, i wanna do something by myself, so i decided to attend the MUN as a single delegate =D
I had lots of free time before i get started to study in hospital as a young doctor. So, i took this chance to go abroad and attending the MUN. the 2nd things that i have to think is about: which MUN? so, i remember that i really wanted to go to UK, then i go browsing some MUN that held in UK. And then i found the website of Sheffield Model United Nations. I never heard about Sheffield before, but i found out that SheffMUN seems quite interesting since it offers a couchsurfing accomodation so i can get socialised with some students from The University of Sheffield. so yes! I applied to SheffMUN! =D
But it wasn’t case closed yet. I need lot of money to go to UK, and the rupiah currency is not good at all. So, with some help from my friend (Rizki Candra) i made a donation proposals and give them to some friends and family who might want to help me. It was so hard! I have to swallow my pride (i’m a kind of person who doesn’t like to asking help for donation, though i have no problems at all to help people), but my friends and family told me that if i am doing a positive things, then it is fine! People needs people, and they’re glad to help me. I was so happy and so thankful because when i think that i’m alone, there are lots of people who really care to help me. Even my university helped me. I never thought that every doors seem to open so wide for me. And i thank God for that.
