A very special recent speaker was Stuart Bryson. Stuart was a participant in MUNA (twice!) in his last years at high school, and has now gone on to engage deeply with international affairs. Stuart spoke of how valuable the MUNA experience had been for him and his friends, opening up not only new networks of friends that remain active, but also inspiring students to develop their studies and careers and contribute to the world around them. Stuart is now our contact at the ANU and has been a great support in organising this year's MUNA.
