Chairs Intro

Marko is originally from a small village in Serbia. He currently lives in Germany and is on the verge of finishing his BA thesis as of writing this. MUNs caught his interest at the tender age of 16, maintaining the MUN marathon ever since. While a philologist by trade, the international relations at MUNs are what keeps him going: speaking many different languages and getting to know a vast spectrum of cultures at the conferences. Next to MUNs, he is part-time funny as a comic and occasionally plays videogames. Pay attention when trying to gossip behind his back – chances are with 7 languages and counting, he should understand you. Maša is a fourth-year BA student at University of Ljubljana, where she studies International Relations. Currently she is an Erasmus+ student at Vytautas Magnus University in Lithuania. Maša adores MUN conferences, because they combine a lot of things she loves, from philosophy, history, politics to travelling and meeting new people. She attended conferences in different roles – as a delegate, as a chair and as a member of the organising team. She is most interested in political philosophy, international security and theories of international relations. In her spare time she likes to read books, listen to jazz, travel and watch ballet. If you won’t be able to spot her, you will definitely hear her.
