Daria is studying International Development at Sciences Po, in Paris. She discovered MUN in her first year of university and became addicted ever since, taking part in numerous conferences across Europe and around the world. Having grown up in countries with different cultures, Daria’s favourite part about MUN is meeting people from different cultural backgrounds and exploring the diversity of points of view found among participants in international conferences like HamMUN. When she is not doing something MUN-related, Daria likes to read about astronomy and cosmology, or taking long walks in nature. It is an honour for Daria to be back at this amazing conference this year again to chair NATO, and she cannot wait to meet all of you in Hamburg!
