CHAIRS – Maria & Silvia

My name is Maria Vastardi and I will be serving as a chair in BIMUN/SINUB2018’s Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee(SOCHUM). I am studying Law in the University of Athens, hoping to pursue a career in International and Human Rights Law.

I joined the MUN community 4 years ago and this experience has been life changing. Throughout High School I participated in many conferences, both national and international, and got the chance to travel and meet people from all around the world. As my university years started, I could not miss the chance to continue this journey, now from a different position and point of view, that of a Chair. Model United Nations has taught me the virtues of dialogue, solidarity and open-mindedness, but above all, it provoked my interest and raised my awareness of international issues and challenges.

I can’t wait to meet you in Bonn and discuss, debate and decide upon global social matters.

My name is Silvia Kirollos, I will be serving as your one of your Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) chair.  I am recently graduated student from California State University Long Beach with a double major in Political Science and International Studies. I am currently JusticeCorps Fellow. I lived most of my life in California but I am originally from Egypt and moved to America when I was 10 years old. I love traveling and exploring. I am trying to learn new languages.
Model United Nations helped me get involved in the field of international relations and opened up many opportunities for me to travel and met people from all over the world. I have been involved in MUN for the past four years with California State University Long Beach. My last year with Cal State Long Beach MUN, I had the honor to serve as MUN club president.  Last year, I was part of BIMUN/SINUB in the Security Council committee and I wanted to experience the conference further as a chair.
I hope to inspire great ideas in this committee and to help delegates with whatever ideas comes their way. I do feel incredibly honored to go to BIMUN again this year and am very happy to be chairing SOCHUM. I look forward to meeting all of you and creating unforgettable memories.
