Greetings! My name is Salwa and I’m currently in my final year of my law degree at the University of Indonesia. My MUN journey began in 2019 and since then I have won several awards and gained chairing experience. Throughout my experience, MUN has taught me so many things and has strengthened both my hard and soft skills. I have no doubt at all that MUN is an excellent learning experience for us young people. This will be my first international chairing experience and I’m so excited to join Sakina Juzar and Adah as a board of dais team for the UNICEF Council.

Srilakshmi
Chidambaram

World Health Organization (WHO)

Hello! I’m Srilakshmi Chidambaram, an 18 year old university student from the United Kingdom currently studying in the Philippines. I will be finishing my pre-medical degree and starting my MD at the Jonelta School of Medicine, UPHSD Manila a little later this year. I started MUN in 7th grade in the UK and have since participated and chaired in around 45 conferences at both the regional and international level. I have a soft spot for committees with scientific agendas, especially in areas of public health and environmental policy.

I'm also an aviation geek, a geography nerd and very passionate about occupational hazards and disaster management. I enjoy reading political theory and prehistory in my free time, but nothing can make me happier than reruns of old British comedy and a giant bucket of popcorn. I look forward to meeting my delegates in WHO and hope this conference will be an amazing experience for you all!

My name is Apostolos, I come from Greece and I am an undergraduate Computer Science student. My MUN journey has given me the chance to come across incredible individuals from different cultural backgrounds, foster wholehearted friendships and explore sides of my personality that would not have otherwise surfaced. For polyphony to be ensured, I firmly believe that politics, policy making and human rights advocacy are domains that must consist of people from diverse fields of studies, each of them providing the everlasting dialogue with a different point of view.

Pumudika
Amarasekara

Economic and Financial Committee (ECOFIN)

Hey all,i’s me, Pumudika Amarasekara from the pearl of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka. I currently work as the Deputy Group management Accountant at one of the Leading Private Hospitals in the heart of Colombo City. I’m a CGMA, ACMA by profession and hold a first-class honours degree in business management from the University of Wales, United Kingdom, and a master’s degree with a distinction in business analytics from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, United Kingdom. I always believe that you should not love what you do, but rather you should do what you love. That way, there is no need for extra motivation since you already have it. My hobby is travel, and thus MUNs give me the perfect opportunity to see the beauty of Mother Nature. I live by the quote, “Magic happens when you do not give up, even though you want to. The universe will always fall in love with a stubborn heart,” which has proved to be true over the years.
