“Hi! My name is Glynn, and I have the pleasure of serving as the Secretary General of BIMUN/SINUB2020.
I was born and raised in Belgium, where I currently study law & economics at the University of Leuven. I have been taking part in MUN conferences for 3 years now, thanks to Leuven’s own MUN association, KULMUN. After experiences as delegate, chair and conference manager, I was offered the incredible opportunity to be Secretary General of BIMUN/SINUB 2020, a task I very gladly accepted.
Through MUN, I had the chance to travel across Europe, expand my knowledge and skills and most importantly, I have met some of my closest friends along the way. This will be my third time attending the BIMUN/SINUB conference, and I hope that I will be able to share my excitement and my love for MUNs with all of you.
As Secretary General, together with the Secretariat and the Executive Board, I hope to provide all participants with an experience that will last them a lifetime, which includes, but is not limited to:heated debates about intriguing topics, high-quality content, unforgettable socials and a unique atmosphere of friendship and enthusiasm you will not find elsewhere.
I look forward to reuniting with the incredible group of friends I’ve made, and I hope to meet as many new people as possible at the BIMUN/SINUB conference this November in Bonn!”
Deputy Secretary General
„My name is Joël Koutangni and I am excited to be your Deputy Secretary General for BIMUN/SINUB 2020!
I live in Switzerland and am currently finishing my third year of bachelor’s in economics at the University of Maastricht. I love to read, play basketball (ball is life), go out with friends and go walk in the woods. I mainly listen to jazz, blues, funk, and rap (sipping some wine while listening to Duke Ellington is my thing).
Although I now live in Switzerland, I’ve come a long way. I was born in Benin where my family and I stayed for a few years. Afterwards, thanks to my father being a diplomat, we had the opportunity to travel and live around Africa. This gave me the opportunity, even at a young age, to learn a lot from and discover new cultures and fascinating people but also to learn English, especially while I lived in Ghana. We then moved to France where I attended an International school where I further perfected the English language throughout secondary school. It is also there that I first encountered MUNs. I was interested in the concept, and already familiar with the international relations scene, so I signed in. Due to my young age, I first began as an admin, and then acted as a delegate before going to high school. When I wasn’t debating, I would work with the organizing team, especially with the interprets. Fast forward to today: I have attended around 25 conferences as a delegate or as a chair and loved every minute of it.
All those experiences were truly amazing, and I am sure that BIMUN will give me the same pleasure. See you all then (and stay healthy)!“
