Olga is a 21-year-old Political Science student at the University of Hamburg. She started doing MUN in school when she was 16 and absolutely fell in love with it. Ever since she has travelled around the world to take part in MUNs, get to know new places and meet new people. By now MUN has become a huge part of her life and she would not want to have it any other way. She is beyond excited to chair the UNEP at the OxIMUN and looks forward to interesting debates and amazing socials in a Harry Potter-like scenery.
