Sophia Telonaki is a 4th year law student at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She was introduced to Model United Nations during her high school years but never really got the chance to be a part of a simulation till her entrance into university. Since then drafting positions papers, raising motions and representing governmental officials turned out to be quite an addictive habit of her. This will be her second time taking on chairing responsibilities in SimUnesCO and she couldn’t be more excited that her keen desire to serve as a board member will be accomplished within the welcoming family of such a beloved conference. The quality brand name that surrounds SimUnesCO already promises an exciting adventure, both academically and socially. That being said, she would like to urge anyone interested in culture, education, sciences and information alike to visit this summer the island of Corfu. For it will be nothing less but a one-of-a-kind experience full of memories extraordinary enough to last
His name is Christos Anastasios Tzagkas but everyone calls him Christos and he would like to welcome you to this year’s edition of SimUnesCO. This would be his second time in this conference and in this short time he has come to love and embrace SimUnesCO for it’s spirit, warmth and the willingness of the people,who organize it, to take diplomacy to a whole new level. He thinks that it will be a great chance for newcomers as well as for veterans to create and cultivate beutiful friendships, to gain experience on the aspects of international relations and diplomacy and last, but not least, to have a wonderful time in the magnificent island of Corfu.
Few things about him, he was born in the, not so famous but really beautiful, city of Katerini and he studies in the Department of Political Sciences in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. At the moment, he is preparing for his Erasmus experience in Tallinn at Estonia but, simultaneously, he is at the last stages of his studies and he really hopes that he can complete them in time in order to proceed with his M.A in International Conflict Analysis and Security.
He has participated in nearly 8 simulations and strongly believes that alongside, his two beautiful and smart colleagues, Sophia and Tatiana, they will be in the perfect position to help in any way they can the delegates and answer their questions.
Unforgettable moments are ahead of us!
Tatiana Kyttaroudi was born and raised in the most north and newest town of Greece, Orestiada, in which she stayed until the age of 18. She is currently an undergraduate student at the Law Faculty of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, studying a subject that she loved from a really young age and is now becoming a reality for her. The criminal, as well as the international sector, are two fields she is really fond of and she hopes to combine them and work in them professionally, especially engaging in cyber crime.
This summer, she has the honour to come back to Corfu for the second year and now serve as a member of the Board at one of her favourite simulations in Greece, SimUnesCO. Although it is true that her MUN journey has only recently started, this does not act as a barrier to working hard for something she loves so much, MUNing! She is assured that multi-dimensional activities, ones that go beyond the every-day academic routine, are those that complete our personality as young adults. One of the aforementioned activities is participating in simulations, the best part always being the number of friendships that emerge in parallel with the broader understanding of current, burning international affairs, through an enjoyable and fun procedure.
Do not be afraid to raise your placards and speak up about what your country stands for. The Board is here because they want to hear your propositions and work with you. The goal and the challenge for them always remains to make you leave the conference saying “This was worthy, I gained so much and I will definitely be coming back next year!”.
