Hibat-Allah Hably

Hiba is a 22 years old Masters student majoring in African Studies at the University of Geneva after majoring in International Relations in France. Having lived in 6 countries during her lifespan (Morocco, Burkina Faso, Benin, France, Turkey, Switzerland), she saw GIMUN as an opportunity to connect even more with the world that surrounds her and to give more layers to her student life. As a Secretary-General, her goal is to organize the most inclusive conference she can, with topics and committees that cater more to the so-called global  “South” than usual.  Because what is the use of having a conversation if it does not include all the actors involved ?
