The Secretariat consists of the Secretary-General, the Deputy Secretary-General and the Under Secretaries-General. Whereas the first two coordinate and monitor the planning and preparation of the conference as a whole, the Under Secretaries-General are directly responsible for one specific aspect of the event. It is now our pleasure to introduce the Secretariat for SheffMUN 2014.
Acting Secretary-General –
Welcome to SheffMUN 2014! I am currently a student at the University of Sheffield reading History. My main areas of study focus on Germany from 1871-1945 and East Germany from 1949-1990 with particular attention to the state justice system. After studying British history at school (for far too long!), I have always enjoyed researching the world outside of the United Kingdom and further afield than Europe.Fuelled by my interest in politics and history, I have worked with business forums, lobby groups and political parties throughout the United Kingdom and the wider world.My Model UN experience began at school and from this I have served as both Deputy Secretary General at SheffMUN 2013 and at Bucharest International Student MUN 2014 in Romania.Besides my studies, I have an interest in theatre, cinema, Greek art, gastronomy and aviation.
Under Secretary-General (Chairing)-Christiana Scarlatou
My name is Christiana Scarlatou (Scarlett) and I come from Athens, Greece. I am your Under-Secretary General for Chairing aka the Headhunter of SheffMUN 2014! I am responsible for Chairpersons, Rules of Procedure and smooth debates during the days of the Conference.I am on my last year of studies in the Department of Social Anthropology at the Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences. I love everything that has to do with International Humanitarian Law and (of course!) Human Rights.Besides the MUN addiction I really enjoy trips, movies, painting, dancing and eating chocolate.Chairpersons and Delegates: We expect all of you to perform your best during these three days and show the world your unique diplomatic skills!I am really looking forward to this memorable experience and to an awesome SheffMUN 2014!
Under Secretary-General (PR and Outreach) – Tjasa Pele firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a fourth-year student of International Relations at the Faculty of Social Science in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I was introduced to MUN two years ago when I participated in Durham Model United Nations in England. Since then, I participated in various MUNs as a delegated and Chair. I always had an interest in international relations and security, which grew even stronger after my participation in United Nations models. For me Model United Nations present a unique opportunity for present and future generations to learn and understand about the issues that concern the global community, as the world we live in today is more interdependent than it ever was. What is even more inspiring for me is the great spirit of coming together and being part of individual and social change and this is what makes Model United Nations so unbelievably interesting. I am looking forward towards both the hard and hopefully fruitful work during the conference and the great evenings afterwards.
Under Secretary-General (Socials) – Patrick Brown email@example.com
My name is Paddy, I’m a final year politics student and have the great pleasure of doing all the printing, scanning, copying and general organisation that goes into an MUN conference.
But on a more exciting note I’m also in charge of organising socials, a job I’ve been doing formally and informally since I came to university (and long before that if I’m honest!). For those of you unaware, Sheffield is well known for it’s vibrant nightlife, with a cutting edge underground music scene, amazing venues and, most importantly, some of the best drinks prices in the UK, you have a lot to look forward to by attending SheffMUN 2014!Being new to the MUN circuit I have quickly realised the socials are an integral part of any good conference, and that is why SheffMUN is trying its best at securing the classiest venues in town! I hope you are looking forward to attending SheffMUN 2014, and can’t wait to see you all extending your diplomatic skills to the dance floor!
