Your UNDP Chairs
Carolin is a third-year student studying International Development at King’s College London. She served as the previous USG social for ULMUN and has been a very keen delegate and chair at several UK and International Conferences. As co-director for the UNDP, she is looking forward to making sure the delegates have an amazing experience at OxIMUN 2018.
Outside of MUN she enjoys cooking, attempting to watch every Netflix show possible, and finding the absolutely best second-hand store in London.
Monika, originally from Greece, is a second year student of Political and Social Studies at SciencesPo University at its campus in Dijon which is dedicated to European studies. At this year’s OxIMUN, she is a chair of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). She has previously attended numerous conferences both in her country of origin and abroad, as delegate and chair. Monika hopes that at this year’s OxIMUN she will be able to give an unforgettable MUN experience to the delegates, one full of enriching debates and wonderful memories.
Monika’s passion is travelling and getting to know other cultures, so you’ll probably find her at least once per day checking Airbnb(s) around the world. Also, she enjoys dancing and swimming, even though, as she is going to tell you, doing sports is not exactly her thing.
