Function as a tutor: Tutoring the Final Report team, preparation of tutorials, teaching how to hold speeches & Rules of Procedure of a MUN conference, accompanying the trips to Berlin, Erfurt & New York.

Motivation: For me, NMUN is not only about getting a better understanding of international relations and global politics, but also about developing one's own personalty. Having been part of the delefgation in 2015/16, I enjoyed one of the most exciting and influential semesters of my studies. Now, I would like to share my experiences with this year's delegation.
