Occupation: Medicine student at Churchill College, University of Cambridge and DSG Chairing

MUN Experience: Emmanuel has been doing MUN for the past 7 years, starting at the beginning of High School (NB – he’s ancient), and this will be his 5th CUIMUN and 18th conference overall.

Hobbies: Beyond MUN, Emmanuel enjoys racket sports (spending an unhealthy amount of time at the table tennis table), complaining (See: Weather, work, minor inconveniences, anything to do with Chairing), going to the gym, going out with friends and doing MUN. He is also currently co-writing a charity pantomime organised every year by the Cambridge Clinical School.
