Kyriakos is a second-year Business Administration student at the Athens University of Economics and Business. He began participating at MUN conferences since high school and has not taken a break ever since. When not in an MUN, you can either spot him at his second home - the airport - or reading a huge accounting textbook. He feels really proud that he just joined the board of his university’s MUN club . He looks forward to seeing you in Tel Aviv for this amazing conference!

My name is Majo and I'm 22 years old, originally I'm from Mexico, but I currently live in Spain since I'm studying a double degree in International Relations + Humanities at Universidad Francisco de Vitoria in Madrid. I'm really excited to be chairing the UNESCO Committee and can't wait to meet you all!!
My name is Aparnaa, and I am pursuing my degree in Commerce in Chennai, India. Having participated in several MUNs, I have gained a better understanding of transnational issues from the perspectives of different countries. Model UN has provided me with systems to sharpen my researching, debating, negotiating, and leadership skills. In my free time, I watch crime mystery shows on Netflix. A fun tidbit about me is that I am an avid traveller and a huge adrenaline junkie. Looking forward to seeing you all in Tel Aviv!
