MEET OUR SECRETARIAT

Amalia.jpeg

Amalia is in her third year of completing a major in Political Science and a minor in history. Initially interested in the sciences, she discovered Model UN in high school, an experience which would change the course of her education. While she has since retired a delegate, she continues to participate in Model UN as an organizer, a passion she discovered as Secretary General of MariMUN 2019. Amalia recognizes how privileged she is to have been exposed to such a remarkable activity that has truly changed her life and she hopes to share this experience with as many people as possible. When she's not writing essays, Amalia enjoys early mornings, unironically playing sudoku and endlessly scrolling through UK realty websites for a London flat she definitely cannot afford.

Emanuel is a second-year student in Medicine. He discovered his passion for Model UN back in 2017 when he was in high school. Since then, he has participated in numerous conferences as a delegate and as a staffer. He had the opportunity to fulfill the roles of Interim Chargé d’Affaires for JACMUN 2019 as well as Director of Committees for MUNC 2019. When he is not procrastinating/complaining about his exams, you can often find him getting involved with medical student advocacy groups such as CéAMC-Qc, AÉÉMUM, and IFMSA amongst others. Beyond his everlasting quest for a normal sleep schedule, he is often on the lookout for food joints, and can often be seen indulging in a much-needed iced coffee or bubble tea while listening to music.
