After recently becoming a law graduate, Miloš has completely abandoned everything that has to do with law, and has dedicated his professional life to the vastness of the IT sector. However, he still remains passionate about all the things that he always was passionate about, such as history, numismatics, philosophy, sociology, etc. His long and outstanding MUN career will not help him much in life, however, it hadn’t influenced his resolve to continue doing MUN’s with the same enthusiasm as the first time he applied.
”For this year’s special edition, we plan on focusing on contemporary topics of worldly politics, with an emphasis on humanitarian issues and challenges. Therefore, we have modeled the committees based on this very goal, in order to ensure that this edition of MostiMUN truly does become special in the full sense of the word.”
Kristina is a student at the Faculty of Law in Zagreb, currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Law while dreaming of continuing her studies in a field of International Relations, one of the main reasons she decided to become a member of MUN family.
Commencing from membership in the Croatian United Nations Association and participation in informal workshops, over the past two years Kristina attended several conferences and gained vast experience and knowledge, be it in a role of a delegate or as a member of the organising team, or even conducting mischief as a crisis team member – her journey was fruitful and memorable, with a puissant impact on her life.
Ana is a fifth year medical student from Spain, currently living it up in Tuscany while on Erasmus in Florence. She has been enthusiastic about MUNing since she first participated in her home conference MUNUSAL (Salamanca, Spain), which she currently helps organise. A few years and a dozen conferences later, she’s enjoying the relative freedom her Erasmus offers to take off and join way too many conferences.
In the past year she has been Editor-in-Chief in two MUN conferences and one Crisis Simulation, and is looking forward to taking on this role again for MOSTIMUN 2018, and to immersing herself into what she fondly calls ‘the Balkan MUN circuit’.
She loves singing at the top of her lungs during karaoke (to the detriment of her speaking voice the next morning), spreading Spanish party music across Europe, and having any excuse to put on a costume (business attire counts as such in her book!). Feel free to approach her and introduce yourself during MOSTIMUN, but no earlier than 9:30. Ana is not a morning person.
Though he was raised in beautiful city of Pula, Ivan will state following loud and clear: He is from Bosnia and Herzegovina, precisely a little town of Kraljeva Sutjeska where great Bosnian kings ruled in medieval times. He graduated 2 years ago from Faculty of Economics and Business at University of Zagreb. Now holds of master’s degree in business economics, Management and Human resource and pursue a career by working in one of the Croatia’s largest telecom companies as a part of Business Sales development department. Shortly said he is strong minded, analytical and have an eye for details. MUN virus Ivan got back in his student days when he first participated on Model European Union Zagreb, after which he got a lead to apply on MOSTIMUN. Although applications were closed he followed his instinct and kindly asked to attend. Finally, his wish was granted, and he participated as a delegate of WTO in G20 Summit. A year after he made his comeback again but this time as a Soviet Union in Historical Security Council. Ended in both of years holding a party animal nomination in his councils. After a few months in 2015. his what he thought last MUN was in Ljubljana. But since old love don’t fade that easily, he is back, better than ever to make an official closure in MUN career. He describes himself as loud, talkative and ready to make stand and drama if necessary. He is a big party animal, loves to go clubbing and dancing so if you party with him prepare to leave the club last one. He cannot be bribed but he likes to discuss all the topics in some nice place while eating (pancakes especially). So, we strongly encourage you to tag along.
His personal motto is: ‘Wrong thing done for a right reason is still a wrong thing.’
As a Crisis Director this year he stated: ‘Prepare for everything because you never know when an ally might become and enemy and vice versa.’ In his free time, you can find Ivan doing what he does best: going to gym, driving his car, planning his next trip, partying hard and napping.
Prospective participants of MOSTIMUN, my name is Martin Wycisk and I will have the utmost pleasure to be a member of the crisis team. My MUN career started 2014 in Warsaw and since then I attended 10 conferences as delegate and chair.
I am graduate of the Eastern Studies programme of the University of Warsaw and currently working as an analyst at a research institute in Poznań/Poland. Besides this I am active in a Polish NGO, educating students on international relations and leadership. In my free time I like to travel the world, learn foreign languages (currently Russian) and attend MUNs when ever I have the occasion to.
When a MUN is organized for the 10th time in a row, it has to be a good one. What you can expect from MOSTIMUN are certainly the highest levels of rhetorics, challenging negotations and unexpected turns of action. Even more important MOSTIMUN will also be an occasion to visit the unique city of Mostar, meet amazing people and enjoy the social events in the evening.
Matic (and, please, not Matić) is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in International Relations, focusing his research on the nexus of economy, security, and international relations. MOSTIMUN holds a special place in his heart, as it is precisely in Mostar where he was at his first international MUN conference. Since then, Matic assumed many mantles in the world of MUNs, and made plenty cherished memories along the way, as well as co-wrote a guide for delegates, the Delegate Handbook.
Having experienced educational systems of Slovenia, Japan, Denmark, and the United Kingdom, Matic learned to appreciate the value of different perspectives, as well as uniqueness of cultures and individuals. MUNs never fail to affirm his conviction that they are the most precious platform to learn, make new friends, and have fun.
