Occupation: Civil Engineering Student at UCL

MUN Experience: At the time of writing this bio, I have done 33 MUN conferences. CUIMUN will be my 35th. I have been doing MUN for over 7 years now and started at the age of 12 when I was coerced into it by my older brother. Fell in love with the activity since then and kept on going. Aside from doing conferences, I founded my highschool society at Whitgift School and I am currently serving as part of the Secretariat Team for Oxford International MUN 2018

Hobbies: Usually spend most of my days watching YouTube videos, looking at memes, and reading the occasional book. This might be unexpected to most people but I can also do magic tricks with cards

Fun Fact: I have 5 cats and we’ve sort of adopted a 6th (the neighbour’s cat likes our place more)
