Hi there fellow munners, I’m Athena Michael, a third year Political Science and History double major student, who is also pursuing a minor in religious studies. I am the Secretary-General for this year’s SMUN.
My deep interest for MUNs was first stirred when I participated as a delegate of South-Africa of the World Health Organization (WHO), when I was in JC2. Soon after that MUNs became an addiction. This saw me participating in the prestigious Harvard World Model United Nations 2011 as an Assistant Chair of UNAIDS and in SMUN 2011 as an assistant chair for the special committee of NATO. I also served as the Under-Secretary General for Academics in SMUN 2012. Little did I expect myself to be signing up for another MUN soon after; SMUN 2012.
I have always been passionate about issues concerning international politics; which would explain my love affair with MUNs. I am an avid reader and largely concentrate on books about religion and politics. No surprise, I would guess. Amidst all of that I love watching CSI, Glee, New Girl and several other TV series. Also I wear the titles of ‘mugger’ and ‘nerd’ as badges of pride.
I look forward to seeing all of you at SMUN 2013. Till then take care and have fun!
