Our chair for the Human Rights Council at this year’s NottsMun will be Maria. Maria is a third year student of psychology at the University of Konstanz. After starting MUN several years ago in high school, she still loves the heated debates and fruitful discussions. She is currently a board member of the United Nations Association Konstanz e.V.. The two topics of the HRC are important to her. Sexual violence is still affecting men and women all over the world. No matter whether online or offline, solutions need to be found. The refugee crisis has shaken Europe and we need to talk about how the HRC can help to maintain basic human rights for the people fleeing their own country. She is looking forward to meet everyone in Nottingham!

Tiziana is a third-year student of Sciences Po Paris, currently doing an exchange year at the London School of Economics. Her desire to pursue International Relations and Political Sciences Studies stems from an early exposure to foreign cultures, as she has been able to travel to over 40 countries and lived in 5 countries on 3 different continents. She has thus had the opportunity to become both a polyglot and a nomad, always on the go and curious to get to know more about the world. When Tiziana isn’t preparing debates or conferences, you can be sure to find her working out cooking Risotto and drinking wine with friends or planning her next travels.
