As for now, though, he is ready to discover the Caucasus!

Aleksandra Grishina is from Moscow, Russia! Her home-university (MGIMO) is where her MUN addiction originates from, for she has been the member of Moscow International Model UN Secretariat for the last three years; MIMUN is considered to be the world pioneer in conducting a model UN in all the official languages of the United Nations.
In 2016 she received a bright opportunity of studying her major (International Journalism) in West Virginia University for an academic year. It is definitely the most rewarding experience she ever had , moreover as it was flavored by conducting a groundbreaking Model UN in the UN headquarters in New Your City.
She has strong ties to her major field of study, and do believe that it is a challenging, but truly iconic time to become a journalist. “I can't wait for LDAMUN 2017 to start, and I'm looking forward to reaffirm my deep commitment to our common passion!”

Isabelle is a not-quite-so-fresh first year fresher at the University of London SOAS, currently reading International Relations and History. She is fascinated by etymology and enjoys learning languages, although it would appear she has recently found her master in Chinese. Nobody could ever call her a cynic without inducing a deconstruction of cynicism as a retort. Outside of the ivory tower, the finer things of life Isabelle couldn’t do without include late night drives, garden dinner parties and sunsets seen through a glass of red wine; all sadly a rarity in her current domicile. Her love for MUN has its roots in a passionate, but ultimately doomed affair with stage acting - has not everyone who ever stood on the boards that mean the world struggled with having to do something incredibly stupid just because thus it is written?
Malte Christoph Westphal
Dear Delegates, My name is Malte Christoph Westphal, and I am honored to be one of your Chairs of the FAO. I have begun with MUN in 2014 and since then have participated in various capacities at 15 MUNs, in almost every position from delegate to Secretary General. I am from Germany and currently pursuing a Master degree in IT-Management and –Consulting at the University of Hamburg, after having received a B.Sc. in Computer Science. Despite this unusual background, International Relations have always been a hobby for me, and I am very interested in the mechanisms of international organizations. I hope that this MUN, and especially the Food and Agriculture Organization will be an opportunity for everyone involved to learn why it is hard to solve the world’s problems, and how we can still do it in the end. Kind Regards, Malte Christoph Westphal
