The Press Corps operates as a very distinct style of committee. It synthesises the need for swift coverage of international developments in the Information Age with the guiding principles of the UN. In OxIMUN, each delegate will act as a journalist from a different media organisation and will provide frequent updates from the field in a form of the chairs’ choosing.

Soila has a strong passion for journalism and just graduated with a BA in Mass Communication (Print Media concentration). She has been with Model United Nations for the past 8 years and has attended several as a member of the Press. She helped found the Sub-Saharan International Model United Nations in Nairobi, Kenya with a few friends and served as the inaugural Under-Secretary-General Communications for the past 2 years.
Outside of MUN, Soila enjoys watching anime, cosplaying, reading any book she can get her hands on and generally hanging out with friends, not always in that order.
Malavika is a final year student reading Political Science and Public Policy at Singapore Management University. She attended her first MUN in 2009 and has not looked back since. Shuttling between India and Singapore, she’s constantly navigating between two societies and street maps, but would not have it any other way. As an undergraduate scholar for Singapore Press Holdings, she’s reported at local newsroom, covering community, crime and political beats. She spent her summer interning at the European Union Delegation to Singapore, making friends while staying away from diplomatic pitfalls. A lazy Sunday might find her choreographing in a dance studio or singing along (tone-deaf) to tracks by Arctic Monkeys.
