Shelly Hanani is a third-year student at the Interdisciplinary Centre in Herzliya, Israel majoring in International Relations and Counter-Terrorism. Coming from Vienna, Austria, she has been exposed to the United Nations and its work, as well as issues that concern it, such as the refugee influx coming from the Middle East.
In high school, she developed a keen interest in the Model UN world, and the conferences she has attended have quickly added up. She further continued her MUN career in college, where she was the President of her society last year.
In her spare time, Shelly enjoys to hang out with her friends, pursue her photography hobby, as well as take pictures of fantastic food. Shelly is very excited to be the USG of Academics, alongside her friend, Dor Gvishi, and cannot wait to see the outcome of the work put in for the conference!
A native from the NonStop City itself, Tel Aviv, this year's USG of Academics is Dor Gvishi. He seems to know the city and MUN like the back of his hand. Tel Aviv University is Dor's second home, he is currently studying to receive two Masters; one in Diplomacy, and the other in European Union Studies. At his BA orientation day in 2017, he stumbled across TauMUN and seemed to have found his calling. One of those reasons is that he sees himself as a geography geek. TauMUN has given him a better understanding and perspective on worldwide politics and diplomacy and is currently classified as a "veteran" of the society.
Dor has represented TauMUN in national, and international confrences, having many opportunities to be both delegates and chairs. Dor sees MUN as a positive change in his life, developing his negotiation skills, public speaking, strategy building capabilities and has granted him great research skills. He now feels ready to take on the biggest challenge of his MUN career the USG of Academics to fulfill his skills and knowledge for TLVMUN2020.
In his spare time he's a killer bartender at one of Tel Aviv's hottest spots. And like any good Tel Avivi he loves to go out and party. Long story short, you want a drink? Either he'll make it or get you and him one to dance the night away!
