Her first MUN was VICMUN 2017, where she was in the Human Rights Council and developped an abiding passion for MUN.

She is delighted to be part of AMUNC 2018, and the team holding such an incredibly diverse and original conference. When she isn't working on all things MUN, she can be found with her adorable rough collie. Alternatively, she'll be helping her friends deal with their lives to ignore the insanity of her own. That's the sort of straight-talking you can expect from the female USG Equity at AMUNC!

Alex Feofiloff

Equity
Read More

Alex’s first MUN was in 2014 at Sydmun. His proudest MUN achievement was threating war with the Commonwealth nations as New Zealand, for forgetting to mention it too, was part of the Commonwealth. He claims to be a first year, doing Speech Pathology, which is technically true, yet has previously completed a B.A majoring in Philosophy, Politics and International Relations. AMUNC for Alex represents a chance to be a part of the institution building process of Equality, ensuing a safe and positive environment for all to enjoy. In his spare time Alex complains that MUN has changed and no one wears suits to socials anymore, after committee.

Hey I’m Shuhan. I’m a third year Economics/Law student from UNSW. My first tertiary MUN was NCMUN 2017 where I acted as a judge in the International Criminal Court. The reason for joining AMUNC is that it is the largest conference in the Asia-Pacific region and I’m keen to help provide the best experiences to all participants. I mostly just chill at home in my spare time, coastal walk and hiking are tiring options but I do them occasionally as well.

Lungol Wekina

Socials
Read More

Lungol Wekina is a 2nd year Environmental Management/Arts student at the University of New South Wales and is loving known (by himself, at least) as the Anti-Social Socials Director of the UNSW United Nations Society. He’s always been an active participant of Model UNs – partly for the dynamic learning experiences they provided, but mostly because they were the only place where he could talk and not be told to be quiet and curb his anti-capitalist spiel. His first MUN at a tertiary level was MUNSW Crisis+ 2017, and his affinity for large bar tabs and even larger hummus platters led him to the AMUNC 2018 Secretariat as the USG for Events. Lungol is hyped to bring you incredible socials throughout the entire conference, and looks forward to seeing you in Sydney.
