Srinidhi Dhulipala is an LLM student at Warwick University aspiring to work in a City Law firm. She has been involved in MUN since Grade 10 which she passionately continues to the detriment of her bank balance. She believes that MUN is her mental escape from routine speech. It is debating with a purpose and the best stimulation available for people seeking to make a difference. She believes in balancing country policy and diplomacy. Her first MUN was one of the most daunting conferences she had been to but the knowledge she gained about the debated issue, country policy and international politics got her hooked. Though she prefers university MUNs to high school THIMUN conferences due to their smaller committee size and flexibility to conduct effective discussion of the matter at hand. She comes from a typical Non-Resident Indian background and has lived in three Middle Eastern cities. When she isn’t studying, being anti-social or doing MUNs, she enjoys painting reading and dancing.
