Chairs Intro

Diego is a freshman at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Studies studying International Affairs in Monterrey, Mexico. He is passionate about the human rights record in Latin America and the ways both government and civil society must confront terrible historical events in order to heal their nuanced societies. This was shaped by his experiences in Monterrey during the most stressing point of Mexico’s War on Drug and further motivated by the return of authoritarianism in many Latin American countries. Diego hopes these ideas and experiences allow him to engage in comprehensive and empathetic discussions with delegates in international conferences such as PragueMUN, and aid him in portraying his country and region in a new light. He thoroughly enjoys going for coffee or tea to debate controversial topics over, and is a vehement supporter of the right of freedom of speech. When he is not debating, Diego will talk to you about Mexico, its people, history, literature, music, philosophy, and cinema, as well as those of many other countries he has visited both as a tourist or as a solo backpacking traveler. Teja has become a part of MUN community soon after she started her Bachelors of International Relations at Ljubljana’s Faculty of Social Sciences. She fell in love with the role of a delegate, passionately defending her country, and. after getting a taste of what presiding over a committee feels like, she went on to be a chair at different conferences across Europe. She successfully helped to organize MUNSC Salient 2018 as the Deputy Project Manager, and will be serving as the President of MUN Slovenia Club from October 2018 and as the Project Manager for MUNSC Salient 2019. Besides MUNing she enjoys good old 70s music ranging from frisky disco rhythms to powerful rock songs, talking about anything related to the DC Universe (Batman Forever), having guitar sessions with no audience, and binge reading Oscar Wilde.
