Agata is a second-year undergraduate student in Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Exeter. Originally from Poland, she first came to the United Kingdom on a scholarship at the age of sixteen.
Having attended conferences all across Europe, she considers WAWMUN in Warsaw to be the most memorable for the chance it offered her to speak in the main chamber of the Polish Parliament. She is particularly fond of economics-based committees, and won an award as Ghana on ECOFIN at LIMUN 2015. Currently a head of conferences for the Exeter Model United Nations Society, she additionally pursues her interest in diplomacy by working with Exeter’s Diplomatic Hub.
Outside of MUN Agata has a keen interest in technology: apart from being an amateur coder, she recently launched an initiative aimed at teaching beginners to programme. In the future would like to explore the impact of technology on the work of international organisations such as the UN,particularly with respect to its legal and finance-related work, which is part of the reason why she is especially excited to chair COPUOS at CUIMUN.
When she isn’t studying or running events on campus, you can find her debating with friends, encouraging people to join MUN, or munching on digestive biscuits.
Like her co-chair Yolanda, Alexia is a fourth-year undergraduate student of Law at the University of the Athens.
Having participated in every possible position at over twenty-five conferences all over Europe, North Africa, Middle East and Asia, she inevitably considers herself a simulation addict and wishes some day to join her country’s diplomatic corps. She is also a UN4MUN ambassador and a Media Associate for Best Delegate for Europe and Africa. Being “a firm lover of the gavel”, she eagerly waits for this year’s COPUOS. If you want to impress her, play by the book... or violate it with style.
Asked for an apposite quote for her committee, she added: “May the force be with you!

Yolanda is a fourth-year undergraduate student of Law at the University of the Athens, but also holds a Certificate in Transnational Law (CTL) obtained from the University of Geneva during her exchange semester in Switzerland.
A participant in MUNs in Greece and beyond, she also represented her university as a member of the Athens Law School Team in the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition in 2014, during which her team was highly praised for its performance. It was then that she realized that space law would be her future career field, which makes her eminently well suited to chair this exciting committee at CUIMUN.
Asked for a comment to share with her delegates, she added:“Space is the limit!”
