History with NMUN: I was former participant of several MUNs and have organized the project in the past.

In 2008 I organized the project as Faculty Advisor and supported the delegations work in New York. For their achievements the delegation was awarded with an "Outstanding Position Papers" Award.

Faculty Advisor Johanna Kammerer

Profile Johanna Kammerer

Date of Birth: October 3rd, 1988

Studies: European Business, Bachelor & Political Science, Bachelor

Functions as a Faculty Advisor: As Faculty Advisor, I am responsible for the weekly tutorial. Together with a team of six tutors, I’ll equip the delegates with skills in public speaking and negotiation for the National Model United Nations Conference in New York.

As former participants, we contribute our expertise and knowledge to the project in order to make NMUN a successful and unforgettable experience for the current delegation. 

What I learnt from NMUN 2012 and why I became faculty advisor for NMUN 2013: Negotiating among diverse peoples and perspectives is not always an easy task, achieving consensus can be very challenging and winning progress sometimes requires a lot of patience.

As a member of the last year’s delegation, I experienced NMUN as a unique opportunity to understand the complexity of international relations and the inner workings of the United Nations. I really enjoyed representing Guatemala at the Conference in New York, where each year more than 5.000 students with diverse backgrounds, fields of studies and nationalities gather together to discuss the world’s most crucial issues.  

I am excited about working together with a Delegation of 21 students, who are highly motivated and filled with such an enthusiasm and excitement to represent their country Morocco. Preparing the Delegation for New York and seeing how they progress in becoming ‘dimplomats’ is something I really look forward to.
