Her MUN career started back in 2015 and ever since, as chair and delegate in multiple conferences, she was looking for as many opportunities as possible to continue discovering the secrets of the “MUN world”. This year it will be her first time attending PIMUN and she is looking forward to meet all of the wonderful people participating in it.
Savvas studies Geophysics at Imperial College London and will be going into his second year in September. He was introduced to the MUN world in 2013 back in his native Cyprus and hasn’t looked back since. He became a mainstay for the island’s biggest high school conference, MEDIMUN, eventually serving as its President of the General Assembly in 2017.
His MUN experience is long and varied, from delegate to chair, and from Secretariat official to organizer. He jumped straight into the university MUN circuit last year, and is very excited for OxIMUN 2019, which will be his first university conference as chair. Aside from chairing, he will also be the Secretary of Training for Imperial’s MUN society (ICMUN) in 2019-20.
Outside of MUN, Savvas is a keen traveler and explorer. As a genuine earth scientist, he enjoys the great outdoors, and never misses an opportunity to talk to people about how earth science rocks. He usually enjoys music, movies and sports when earth science or MUN don’t keep him too busy.
