How is European institutes working ? Is it difficult to take a decision? Is it fancy to be a president? All of these and more questions I had before attending for first time in a Model of European Union in the center of Europe, in Brussels . I have to be honest that it was quite stressful and full of adrenaline experience. Okay, we did not climbed to the Niagara waterfalls for bungee jumping, but everyone of 100 youngsters we had a different role and representing different country which in one perspective is kind the same.
For the ones that do not know what is MEU, as it said it is the original simulation of the European Union's legislative process. Each participant had to choose between different roles in four different institutes. European parliament, European court, Council of Europe and European Bank. Although, I had the privilege I think to be a journalist. Why privilege? Because I was a bit of everything and be as objective I could without take a specific place.
How was our schedule? More interesting that is sounds. Waking up at 7 o’clock, having breakfast and then running to take the bus to be on time. At 9 asap we were starting the session. Debating, discussing, creating memes, hide laughing and lot of visualization. And after the session…party party party!
But BMEU 2019 wasn’t just that. Actually, was more than that. 100 people from all around the world, we created a wonderful team and shared great ideas on how we are dreaming the European Union. But beside the European stuff, we sang together, we ate together and we had lot of fun together. These were the days I will remember and who knows, maybe they will convinced me that being a journalist of the European Union will be funky at all!
