- The 2030 South China Sea and Hong Kong Integration
Born and raised in Indonesia, Arkan is currently on an internship for a political consultancy firm in the EU quarter of Brussels – focusing in Agro-Economics & Environmental policies. Having dived into the MUN world since his first week of university in KU Leuven 3 years ago, Arkan now serves as the Director-General of Brussels Model EU 2019. In this year’s EuroMUN, Arkan returns to Maastricht for one last time to direct a Crisis that tackles on a region close to his home – the South China Sea. Always bringing his energy to debates inside committees and dance show-offs on the socials, Arkan is expecting you to unleash the same energy later in May. Are you up to the challenge, delegates?
Martin is a third-year French student currently in his last year of a BA in International Studies in the Hague. EuroMUN 2019 will be his 14th MUN conference and 9th Crisis Simulation. As one can probably very easily tell, Martin loves Crisis and is extremely happy to be the Co-Director alongside Arkan for a very interesting 2030 South China Sea Crisis. Amongst his many and varied hobbies – he includes the sport of drinking wine and haunting the streets of the Hague for cheese and bread.
Rizqi Imaduddin was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia and is now in his final year at the University of Groningen. He has a special interest in the field of regional integration and the post-colonial world. Rizqi was a self-proclaim freelance MUNer, going wherever the MUN world takes him. However, he has settled down and is currently raising his university MUN society and serving as the Under-secretary General of TEIMUN. He is looking forward to chairing the Crisis council in EUROMUN and hopes none of his delegates will backstab him as he has done multiple times being a delegate of crisis. Outside of the MUN world, he enjoys experimenting with making Asian food in the kitchen and searching for the freshest memes on the internet.
Bianca Getzel is a second-year Politics and International relations student at the University of Manchester. Despite being Italian she began MUN in the United States where she completed high school. While in the US she was captain of her team and acted as a UN Student Representative organizing forums and panels throughout her region. Now at university, after spending her first year as a delegate in the UK and international circuit and working for projects for the UK Foreign Office, she is now chairing/organizing an array of conferences from being in the Secretariat in her own Manchester to Chairing at London International MUN and soon working as USG of Academics for Oxford International MUN. However, it is her background in the US and prominent American Accent which explain why she will be chairing the US Cabinet at EuroMUN 2019’s crisis this year.
Coming from Croatia, Matej is a final year student of Politics and Economics in the UK where he got introduced to MUN. He has been a president of his university MUN society and throughout the past four years has been involved in directing, backrooming and chairing in crisis committees at over 15 conferences. His love of crisis stems from the fact that it is the only outlet, other than MUN socials, to vent out his obsession for (mostly irrelevant) historical facts. Returning to chairing after two years of absence acting as a backroom puppet master for unsuspecting delegates, he is looking to pass his experience, love of crisis, and mild lunacy to the delegates in the final crisis our loving director Arkan is putting on. Although, all experienced MUNers will tell you retirement plans in MUN rarely pan out. Just like your plans in crisis. See you all in Maastricht!
