This is the world’s largest conference meant for global youth to experience the Real UN Diplomacy. More than 140 countries students are estimated to gather aiming to meet in New York and discuss the most pressing UN Topics.
Objectives: FWWMUN seeks to bring together future generations of leaders from all corners of the globe to gain first-hand experience in international relations, to produce high-quality resolutions aimed at bringing about the Future We Want, and to submit these resolutions to relevant UN agencies and world leaders for consideration.
How did he get selected?
He has applied through an online application system where applicants need to demonstrate the importance of their attendance to this conference, their future goals and possible strategies to take this for the benefit of the community.
Further the selection process consisted of creating a video message, tagging FWWMUN and posting it on social media.
Thus he got a scholarship to cover all his fees, accommodation expenses for said duration at NYC.
What are his achievements so far?
He is exceptionally good at political analysis and he has participated in live debates on various national televisions which includes TV9, CNN, News18, Republic TV, etc.

Tell something about your family?
His father is ICT teacher in private school, he also is president of Universal Versatile Society. His mother is a housewife and part time working for Universal Versatile Society, a volunteer organization, since 2005 in the field of education, sustainable agriculture and environment.
(UVS is working on very limited funding but had made remarkable progress in the field they are working)
What is the hurdle in attending the conference?
Ved’s parent’s income source is not enough to bear his flight expenses so his attendance to this conference is only possible with external funding.
