When Ms. Raja first asked me to write this blog post about my experience interviewing Nobel laureate Didier Queloz, I instinctively worried about one question: how can I make this interesting for others to read while still keeping it somewhat informational? Hence, like the title suggests, I decided that I will try my best to give you some practical tips on how to effectively handle a nerve-wracking, unfamiliar situation, such as interviewing a very important figure, while still sharing my personal take on the whole experience!

Let me start off by shortly introducing myself. My name is

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. 

To create a better understanding to this very emotional response I should probably start from the beginning. During my

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.

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
