Chairs Intro

Mohammed is a student of Software Engineering at Prince Sultan University in Riyadh, KSA. Born in Britain, raised in Sudan and studying in Saudi Arabia, he has been around the world from a very early stage in his life. During his first committee as a delegate Mohammed displayed a fiery passion for leadership, so much so that he was told by the chair to “stop trying to chair the committee”, and that made him decide to become a chair himself. As the vice President of the PSU Falcons Toastmasters club, he has participated in, organised and won many debate contests. When he’s not arguing with someone, he likes to spend his free time reading novels and playing league of legends with his friends.  Niklas is studying law in Heidelberg in his third year. He has been a part of the Heidelberg MUN Society since the start of his studies. It will be his third time chairing and his fifth conference in total. He will do his best to ensure that the whole committee feels comfortable and ready to discuss. He is especially looking forward to PragueMUN as it is his first conference outside of Germany. He hopes to relive the wonderful week he spent in the city during a class trip two years ago. His secret wish is to drink a certain cocktail in Prague that he has not found anywhere else yet. When not thinking about law or MUN, Niklas loves spending time with his friends and playing the trumpet in an orchestra.
