The chairperson announces the final vote and proceeds to wrap up the debates for the day. People get up, speaking quietly about what just happened on their way out. I am still sitting, in shock. I look around and find that everyone in my committee is doing the same. We slowly get up and the tears we were fighting back are now coming. We sob like children all the way to the next venue. Although we are inconsolable we wipe our tears away to keep up appearances during dinner.

We spent a week with European youth just like us, debating important issues that affect the EU and us everyday. Over the course of a week, we learned how to draft legislation, reach consensus on difficult issues, how to debate, how to speak in public and how to understand the other side of an argument despite feeling very strongly for your side.

This past weekend two of our students, Erika Carlsson and Mikael Carlsson, participated in the Chinese Language Competition here in Stockholm.
They did an amazing job, being both confident and aiming for the best results, their ambitions came from their serious, time-consuming preparation that they put in during the 2 months before the competition! Which definitely paid off as IEGS was awarded the second prize over all! Mikael won the first prize and Erika the second prize as individuals, which is a great accomplishment for them and IEGS. There were three parts that they were graded on which consisted of speech, questions and a cultural show.
