Secretary General: Omar Faizalla

Hello everyone,

My name is Omar Faizalla and I am a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Sheffield. I am the president of the University of Sheffield MUN society and the current Secretary General for the 7th edition of SheffMUN. I started doing MUN many years ago as a judge on the ICJ (International Court of Justice) then moved on to various committees as the years went by. During that time, I was able to participate in many international conferences in various countries. In the UK, I was the president of BraMUN and the training officer for the University of Sheffield MUN society. I strongly believe that being able to voice concerns in a professional and concise manner through MUN is what really makes an impact, for we know that the words are mightier than the sword. We will be working hard this year to make a difference and make SheffMUN an unforgettable experience. Our team is experienced and is eager to definitely make this year’s conference the pathway to a better 2030.


Deputy Secretary General: Chris Brookes

Hi everyone, I’m Chris, and I’m the Deputy Secretary General for SheffMUN VII. I was the USG for Media and Communications for the last edition of SheffMUN, and I’m currently the President of Sheffield Hallam MUN Society, although I’m originally from Sussex in the South of England. I’m looking forward to making sure everyone has a wonderful time at SheffMUN later this year, and hoping that we have some vibrant debates!

Hello everyone! My name is Minoas and I am from Greece. I’m currently the USG for Chairing and Applications for the 2018 Winter edition of Sheffield Model United Nations. It is my pleasure to welcome you all to SheffMUN VII and I hope you have a pleasant time with us in November. At the moment, I am a Politics with International Relations undergraduate student at the University of York.
This year, as the USG Chairing and Applications, my task will be that of selecting the best chairs possible for the conference and of ensuring that we get people into the right committees, so that everyone can have a memorable MUN experience.


USG for Public Relations: Bastian Harth

Hi, my name is Bastian, I’m from Germany, and I’m doing an MA in Politics, Governance, and Public Policy at the University of Sheffield. Before, I lived for four years in Japan – studying the language, working, and doing my Bachelor in International Relations. I have also lived in the UK, Vietnam, and Indonesia before for volunteering, interning, and studying. I strive to do a PhD in Politics, but my ultimate goal has been to become a diplomat. While I’m usually joining MUN Conferences as a delegate, or chair I’m excited to be your Public Relations Officer. I hope that I can include my prior knowledge and my experiences from other conferences, and I’m looking forward to meeting you!

Hello everyone!! My name is Dimitra Psychari and this year I will be the USG Logistics (External) of SheffMUN VII! I am a Masters Student of LLM Human Rights (this is a Masters in Law) at the University of Cardiff. At my free time when not doing MUN, I like listening to metal music, looking at pictures of cute cats and writing poetry. I have been involved in MUN for more than 6 years and it is my pleasure to welcome you at the beautiful and historic city of Sheffield. As USG Logistics my duties involve anything regarding the most optimal support of all the participants of the conference. MUN has offered a lot to me and I believe that being a Secretariat Member is a way to give back. It is a pleasure to me to meet you all in November.
