BIMUN/SINUB’s Executive Committee is very happy to introduce this year’s Secretariat to you:

Jonatan Hermann as Secretary-General and Francisco Rios Viñuela as Deputy Secretary-General

Hello! My name is Jonatan Hermann and I have the honour of being BIMUN’s Secretary-General in 2019. I am Swiss and Czech, though currently live in Vienna, Austria where I study political science. Four years ago, while still in high school at the German International School in Prague, I took part in my first MUN conference as the delegate of Estonia. I’ve been a committed MUNer ever since, which has given me to the chance to travel Europe and meet many incredible people, all of which I expect to see in Bonn soon! After spending the last couple of years largely inhabiting the position of chair, I’m excited be moving back “upstairs” as the Secretary-General, especially at a conference I have heard so many great things about.

As Secretary-General, I hope to contribute to what will be an excellent conference and a great experience for all those who participate in it. In collaboration with the chairing team and the executive board, my goal is to facilitate debate and deliberation on exciting and pressing issues with a global reach. I’m grateful for having the opportunity to put these experiences to good use in helping to shape this year’s conference and to share my passion for international politics, debate and Model UN with you all. On that note I sincerely hope to see many familiar faces, but even more new ones in Bonn this coming November!

Hi, I’m Francisco, I am 22 years old and I am delighted to be Deputy Secretary General for BIMUN/SINUB 2019 edition. I am from beautiful Salamanca, Spain, where I also attend university. There I study Law and have previously studied Translation and Interpreting. I first took part in MUN through mi university association, a team in which I am now a part of. I have been a journalist, delegate, chair and organiser in different conferences in Europe. I took part last year in BIMUN/SINUB as a delegate and I remember it as a great experience, so I am really excited to go back and take a more challenging role. I am looking forward to seeing the trilingual committee in action, since I did not have the chance last year and want to remember my interpreting days.

I hope that Jonathan and I, together with the invaluable work from the executive board, will create a wonderful conference for experienced and new delegates alike. It still feels like November is a long time away but I know these months are gonna pass before we even realise it and we will soon be enjoying a nice cup of hot wine in the Christmas market. See you all there!
