Irmak okur

My name is Irmak and I am 17 years old. I love debating, sharing my ideas- especially by talking!- and searching for movement of thoughts.

I have participated in 6 MUN Conferences and I do have 3 Outstanding Delegate Award. I have started going MUNs after I realized I am actually not bad at debating. My current life goal is to search for a field towards my talents so that I can study on for a long time.

I have decided to be a columnist in MUNTurkey.com to share my knowledge about MUN and improving my writing skills. So I am open for any kind of criticism!
