AMSA-Unpad MUN: A Game of Diplomacy

For me, diplomacy has been as much as subject of interest as it is an unsolvable enigma. It has been hard to be a great speaker with no opportunity to compete in debate competitions or the like. Having a chance to do it through a Model United Nations convention is a new thing I was eager to try, and that’s what got me to finally joining AMSA-Unpad MUN. I finally registered and represented the People’s Republic of China in the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Council. After officially registering, the committee obliged us to do a position paper on the topic and country involved.

As an assigned coordinator, I was also concerned about the preparations of us, FMUI delegates. So, I arranged for several preparations, including tickets and committee liaisoning to a one-session training held with the support of UI’s very own MUN Club.

Finally, the day came. Due to a combination of bad planning and traffic, I only managed to arrive in Bandung at Saturday, 1 AM  Arriving after everyone has gone to sleep (and after the welcoming party and a presentation of the basics of MUN), I’m very anxious of the day to come

Day 2 came, with the first session being a seminar session with a doctor from UNFPA. Afterwards, came the first conference session (thankfully, with a brief introduction as well). Through the day, we went through three conference sessions, but were very hard-pressed to find solutions to the problems of drug and organized crime. On the other councils of UNFPA and WHO (which was participated by Aya and Jilly respectively), discussion also got to a standstill in the end of the first day.

After the conferences of the day was finished, we participated in the farewell party to relieve us from the discussions’ stress. Here is where the solidity of my council shows. We had fun and took pictures together. Afterwards, most of the council held an after-party of, (against the mainstream), drafting the mock concluding documents to be discussed in the morning.

By the morning, the conferences (which I attend late due to dizziness), has came to a quick path to conclusion. The draft document we concocted the night before was argued very diplomatically by its supporting nations, to the point that the product was unanimously agreed upon by the conference (a very satisfying result for its supporters). Due to the availability of time, mock awards are held, in which I (pitifully) got the predicate “The Most Single-looking Person”. Afterwards, comes the closing, in which Aya won the Honorable Mention in her council. We finally can go home in peace (and with an award, too)

The 2-day process led me to extend my connections to a lot of the new friends I met through the conferences­­. It also would, in a way, help me in everyday life, as I got more competence in interpersonal communication through this. It is a very fun and satisfying experience (which is helped a lot by the comfort provided by the committee’s helpfulness and hotel’s ambiance), which I would love to participate again in next year.

National Action Event 2016

March 15th, 2017 by in News

National Action Event (NAE) is one of AMSA-Indonesia’s national events. Out of all AMSA-Indonesia’s national events, this event highlight AMSA’s  action philosophy the most (national action event, get it?). Other than action, this event also highlight AMSA’s knowledge philosophy since there is also a debate competition for all AMSA-Indonesia members (it’s NAE+DC, actually). The other philosophy, friendship, as always can be found throughout all the events! You will understand how soon.

This year’s NAE was held by AMSA-Universitas Syiah Kuala in Banda Aceh, Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam on 9-11th December 2016. There was something that made this year’s NAE slightly different than the previous ones or any other national events that was held/will be held this year. It was because NAE 2016 was held in Banda Aceh, where the Aceh province use syariah law (Islamic law). While we were there, the girls were expected to wear a hijab (or at least cover our heads), especially during the health campaign and social act.

So, what exactly did we do on NAE 2016?

On the first day, there were lecture and workshop, and also welcoming party at night. But unfortunately, most of AMSA-UI delegates missed all of the events on the first day because we arrived at Banda Aceh at nearly midnight.

On the second day, the delegates were divided into two. The debate team did the preliminary round at Unsyiah’ campus while the rest did health campaign at a village in Banda Aceh. For the health campaign, we were divided into teams (and met new friends from the team) and went to villagers houses to educate them about heart disease. At the end of the campaign, the villagers were gathered on a field for a short seminar and workshop session about cardiac arrest. After all the events of the health campaign had finished, we went to Unsyiah campus for a talkshow about research and also to hear NRPC presentation (psst one team was from AMSA-UI! Assyifa, Tamara, and Kak Fadhian). Then, we went back to the hotel for one of the most awaited event: Farewell Party! With casual dresscode, we had fun, took a lot of pictures, entertained with the original Saman dance and music, and of course, saw our Anjani got inaugurated as AMSA-Indonesia’s Ambassador of Public Health!

Finally we reach the last day of NAE 2016. On this last day, our debate team (husin, Raku, and Aya) unfortunately didn’t made it to the final rounds, and so they went on to hang on the beach with our LO. Meanwhile, the rest of us did social act on Lapangan Blang Padang. After we did the social act, we went to eat some Mie Aceh before finally went back home to Jakarta.


We would like to say our thankyou to AMSA-Unsyiah for hosting the amazing event!

AMSA-UI’s 30th Birthday Party

March 15th, 2017 by in Uncategorized

November 26th, 2016 was a great day for AMSA-UI as we celebrate the organization’s 30th birthday. The party took place on the Da Vinci Penthouse Multifunction Hall in Sudirman from 17.00 until 21.00. To celebrate the organization’s pretty old age birthday, this year’s birthday theme is Thanksgiving. Everyone came to the party suited and dressed ready to get sedated by the awesomeness of the party AMSA-UI prepared. Before the party even started, a festive atmosphere could already felt because so many people came, not only from AMSA-UI, but from AMSA from around Jakarta.


The event began with speeches from the Project Officer, AMSA-UI Representatives, and the Student President of the Faculty of Medicine of University of Indonesia. After that we sang the National Anthem and The Asian Medical Students Association Anthem.


Everyone was already really hype for the party right after we all sang the National Anthem. That was why everybody loved the next event, which is eating dinner. During dinner time people not only eat, but they all socialize with people they never met before. Now that everyone knows everybody, it was time to play games. The first game was battle of the sexes. It was a game with an objective to move cards to the next person using nothing but your mouth. Bunch of funny things happened especially in the men’s team. Unfortunately, the women’s team won easily. Next, was battle of the departments of AMSA-UI. It was a game to guess anything the messenger give without saying a single thing. It was a total chaos because every department played to win. Although every department gave everything they got, the winner was AMSEP Department.


After everyone was tired after playing two great games then came the sharing session from former representatives and executive boards. So many things can be learned from their experiences. Finally, the party ended with a flash mob and a mannequin challenge participated by everyone who came to the party. Although, it was great, everything must end. So, we took one last photograph and said goodbye and thank you to everyone.


Having the privilege as being the Project Officer of AMSA-UI 30th Birthday Party was such an honor for me. Everyone helped me to make this event a success. I learned a lot of things and gain more than I could ever ask for. Once again, I want to thank everyone for this party and congratulate them for making one of the coolest birthday parties ever! Yeah, we did it guys!
