Darius is 19 and currently undergoing the second year of his bachelor in Law and International Relations at the University of Geneva. Half German and half Swiss but brought up in Colombia, France and Israel, he had the privilege of travelling and being surrounded by different cultures for his entire life, which firmly planted the roots of his belief in internationalism. The opportunity to learn multiple languages and meet people from all over the world developed a passion for exchange that brought him to MUN, first in Bogotá and then in Geneva. To him, GIMUN embodies the spirit of international Geneva and its values, and he hopes that by organizing the GIMUN conference this year he can transmit them by creating a space to debate, to exchange and to learn as much as possible.
