 John-Paul Duddy

Assistant Director

John-Paul Duddy

18, British

Occupation: Politics student at King's College London

MUN Experience: Whilst I’ve only been doing MUN for one year, I’ve managed to get quite a few conferences under my belt in that time. I’ve been a delegate at a number of conferences across Europe, and I’ve now started getting into chairing. I’m also on Secretariat for two upcoming conferences and I’m on the committee of my university MUN society so MUN is certainly keeping me busy!

Hobbies: When he manages to escape studying and MUN, John-Paul enjoys food (snacking, cooking, eating, the lot – he’s probably susceptible to food-based bribery), Brooklyn Nine-Nine, listening to music and travelling.

Fun Fact: John-Paul has an odd passion for penguins and the best rollercoaster he’s ever been on is precisely that because it involved a slower section so he could see penguins going about their daily business.

 Diane Audras

Assistant Director

Diane Audras

20, French

Occupation: Statistics, Economics and Mandarin student at University College London

MUN Experience: She started MUN during her first year at university and has so far attended conferences in Europe including LIMUN and PIMUN. Diane is delighted to co-chair for the WHO this year at CUIMUN, and is looking forward to meeting all of you!

Fun Fact: She is very curious about Asian culture, having lived in Singapore and Shanghai when she was younger.
