I dedicate this guide to those who’ve — in some way— helped me in this process. Jyotsna and Rajiv Mehra You have been the most supportive parents for anything I have done. You have always stood by me. Ms. Angelika Küster You’ve been a magnificent Advisor, and your ideas, contributions and help have been extremely helpful. Thank you for everything, without you, this wouldn’t have beenpossible. Mr. Brian Chenault and Ms. Tanya Nizam From even before I began MUN, you both encouraged me to join ISA’s MUN club. Your advice has always been fruitful and refreshing. Ms. Frances Laughlin Every time we met and I showed you my progress, you’ve always been motivating, encouraging and provided me with helpful solutions to the problems I came across. Thank you for all of your help along the way.Ms. Linda Dubock It was wonderful to get your advice and opinion of my guide at THIMUN 2010. Thank you for your ideas, which have helped me to further develop this guide. Ms. Donna Saxby and Ms. Nathalie Morrissey From ordering books, to citing sources, to even keeping the Library open until late, I couldn’t have done this without both of your continual cooperation, support and help. Mr. AlessandroGuglielmi Your continual help and always being “online” whenever I needed you assisted me throughout the whole way. Our conversations, your opinions and ideas never ceased to amaze and be insightful. Thank you for all your guidance throughout this process as a continual support for this guide. Ms. Vivian Wu As my first conference chair, you have been the most supportive, helpful and encouragingchair. I owe all what I have learnt to you and your notes that explained things to me when I looked unsure. Had you not been so persistent to make me speak and “get out there”, I wouldn’t have succumbed to enjoying MUN. Ms. Bettina Böhm You were there at my first conference, and sat next to me as my guide and help throughout the conference. Without your little notes in your folder to me, or yourwhispers, I would’ve taken much longer to grasp MUN. Thank you Bettina. Ms. Elena Cinelli Your ideas as a new MUN Club member offered me a different insight which I greatly value and appreciate. Without your comments, I wouldn’t have known what new delegates want from a guide to MUN.
