Dominik is a fourth-year undergraduate student of International Relations and European Studies at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic. He has additionally spent half a year at Bologna through the Erasmus programme, and is thus fluent in Italian.
A pan-European MUNner, Dominik has attended conferences as a delegate in Granada, Istanbul, Oxford and Rome, and chaired committees such as DISEC and the Security Council in cities such as London and Prague. In addition to preparing for CUIMUN, he has also helped his colleagues at Masaryk organise their conference, MuniMUN, as Security Council chair.
The topics for debate at UNEP are of great personal interest, while interests outside of debate include photography, volunteering, learning new languages, football, athletics, and cinematography, Asked for further comment, Dominik added that he has found all MUNs enriching and always built relationships with people from all over the world. He highly recommends MUNs to all those who are interested in improving their public speaking and understanding of different views on problematic topics as well as meeting new people and future world leaders, for which reason he has particularly endorsed CUIMUN 2015.
Milia is a second-year undergraduate student in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London.
Her MUN career started in high school in 2010, and her subsequent university experience has included CUIMUN and LIMUN, in addition to sitting as conference secretary on the executive board of the Imperial College MUN Society.
She is currently President of the Bioengineering Society at Imperial, but also enjoys dancing, playing the piano, and singing among many other activities in addition to her academic interests. Milia is looking forward to CUIMUN 2015 as it promises to be an exceptional conference with many fruitful discussions, though not least in UNEP where the topics are of particular interest and relevance to current world affairs.
Quote: “I am really excited for CUIMUN. What better could one ask for than a great historical city, topics of a most intriguing and pertinent nature up for debate in UNEP, and a plethora of international students eagerly discussing current world issues?"
Piotr is a student of Law at University College London, having previously studied Law at the University of Warsaw.
An active participant in MUN since 2012, he has chaired close to a dozen MUN committees in Europe and beyond, including SOFIMUN (Sofia, Bulgaria), HolylandMUN (Tel Aviv, Israel), and MUNIST (Istanbul, Turkey).
His interest in international law and international politics has a predominant focus on Eastern European affairs, but has also led him to involvement in the student debating circuit in the United Kingdom. Outside of academia and MUN, Piotr is a long-standing Wikipedia administrator as well as a published poet.
Quote: “I am looking forward to leaving a positive and constructive mark on the conference. I am open to any questions regarding the MUN format, especially first-timers – the bigger the MUN family grows the more motivation and enthusiasm there is to keep holding conferences and cultivating the culture of MUN."
