Olga is a political science student at the University of Hamburg. She fell in love with MUN at the age of 16, as it was an activity that combined many of her favourite things including travelling, discussing politics and meeting amazing people. Therefore over the last few years she spent an almost unhealthy amount of time participating in conferences all over the world. HamMUN however always remained the conference closest to her heart and she is beyond excited to chair the G20 at HamMUN 2019!
