Russell greatly enjoyed the Model United Nations conference of his hometown in the previous year and thus he will resolve to ensure the enhancement of its reputation for NottsMUN 2018. As Russell questions his plans for the future, he takes solace in the notion that his three years at the University of York studying History have prepared him well to chair SPECPOL with his additional experience at the OPCW giving him an insight on the function of multilateral committees. Russell will also have no qualms in noting and applying elsewhere the inevitable innovations and precedents that NottsMUN 2018 will create.

Anna-Leah Gebühr is a second year War Studies student at King’s College London. She has done Model United Nations for a year now. Having participated in a wide range of committees and conferences, she soon discovered to love committees a little outside of the norm, such as a summit of Marvel superheroes. NottsMUN will be her second time as a chair, and she is looking forward to a great conference. Anna is always happy to answer questions. She loves to learn about peace and international organisations, as well as religion and culture. In her free time she enjoys studying Arabic, going to the theatre, exploring London and reading – or you can catch her talking about medieval fortifications and artillery with her friends.
