I've been organizing international Model United Nations conferences, with over 600 participants from around the world.
I'm reaching out to you because I'm considering including this experience in my portfolio as an extracurricular activity. However, since I'm applying for journalism, I'm not sure if it's relevant or impressive enough to include.
I would really appreciate your input and advice on this matter. Do you think organizing six international MUNs and coordinating over 600 participants is an impressive extracurricular activity? Is it relevant to a journalism application? I value your opinion and would be grateful for any insights you can offer.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
Hey there @dako1! I know this response is a bit late, so sorry about that.
I think that this would be a great thing to put on your application! Even though it doesn't directly correlate to your chosen major, it's still an impressive (and time-consuming, I assume) achievement that seems important to point out. It shows that you're organized, disciplined, handle yourself in situations with lots of people, and can orchestrate large-scale events, all of which can be important in journalism. You could also potentially use some of the skills you learned from Model UN to strengthen your journalism skills!
