United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
My name is Rosalie and I am a first year student at LSE. I am on a joint program, studying International Relations and Chinese. I am from Germany and very passionate about international politics and foreign languages. The UN has always been a major field of interest for me. At Robert Bosch College, a United World College where I was living together with 90 different nationalities, I chaired and attended different MUN conferences. In one of my committees I even changed the MUN language from English to French.I really enjoyed chairing the Commission on the Status of Women and right now I am even more excited to chair the High Commission on Refugees. I am very much looking forward to teaching MUN, motivating new delegates and generally having a fruitful debate with my committee. Furthermore, I am sure that the current situation offers a lot to discuss on an international level and MUN is more meaningful than ever before.
Hello! My name is Syaiful Iylia Bin Jamalluddin, and it is my honor to serve as the deputy chair United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. I am a first year student studying Philosophy and Politics, and was born and raised in Singapore. I participated in my first MUN in 2014, and have participated in numerous MUNs both as a delegate and a chair. These varied experiences nurtured a passion for international relations in me, and I am certain that you will come to love the intricacies related to debating in MUNs too.
When not cramming an essay a night before my deadlines, I love to play football or do volunteer work. One of my most meaningful experiences was volunteering for an NGO in Greece, delivering humanitarian aid to refugees seeking asylum in the EU. I believe that the reason I went was due to my interest in global affairs from my MUN experience, and I do hope that this conference and the topics we will debate on will be as meaningful for you as it is for me.
