Sanduni Mudiyanse

My name is Sanduni Mudiyanse (Sandy), I am currently a third year Politics and International Relations undergrad studying in Oxford. As an aspiring diplomat, Model United Nations has always meant more than just an extra curricular. I enjoy traveling and what better way to do it than meet with people from all walks of life with similar interests and a passion for politics, other than my faith in the Gavel, I am a foodie and an avid reader. I believe MUN creates the best diplomatic colloquium for a diverse discussion about current global affairs, so my next destination is Hamburg. I look forward to being a part of NATO and hope to see a committee with a clear vision, energy and zeal to achieve what has thus far been the unachievable. See you soon!

Dvir Spinka

Honourable delegates,
Nice to meet you! My name is Dvir Spinka, I’m 24 years old and am currently pursuing my BA in History, Philosophy, and Humanities.
I have been doing college level MUN for two years now, but I have also done MUN throughout high school.
During the last two years (and of course beforehand during my high school years), I have chaired and delegated in numerous conferences, both nationally and internationally.
BTW, this HamMUN will be my third HamMUN in total and first as a chair, so as you can imagine, I'm quite excited (. In addition to both chairing and delegating experience, I've also had the privilege to take part in one of my country's international conference (HolylandMUN) as the Director of Communications and Foreign Affairs and a member of the Secretariat.
MUN is one of my biggest passions in life, ergo I consider it a privilege to serve as your co-chair, and I hope we will all experience fun, enriching, prolific conference.
All the best and I hope to see you all in December!
