International politics and relations have always been my main point of interest and focus besides my law studies. By participating in the MUN seminar in 2019 I discovered MUN Bern as a student association and it has since enabled me to build a network of like-minded people, while immersing myself in the world of the UN structure and processes, diplomacy and negotiations. Besides my studies, MUN and work I love to read, bake and spend quality time with friends and families.

I`m currently a law student in my 7th semester. I joined MUN Bern as a seminar participant and immediately fell for the exciting chance to discuss international topics with amazing people. Last year I had the great opportunity to attend a MUN conference in Edinburg Scotland where I met people from around the world and was able to get a taste of diplomacy whilst debating topics from different perspectives. Next to school and MUN I also love to read, watch movies, travel, and spend time with friends and family.

I’m a 22-year old law student at the University of Bern, currently enrolled in my fifth semester. What I like is skiing, hiking, meeting friends, and traveling. With MUN I am able to travel and meet new people at the conferences. I also have the possibility to learn more about diplomacy and to improve my negotiation skills, which I like a lot!

I’m a law student at the University of Bern. Originally I learned about MUN in my second year at Uni because I participated in the seminar. With MUN I was able to attend an international conference in Frankfurt, which was an entirely new experience for me. Over the course of the year it became clear to me, that I wanted to be a part of MUN Bern as I learned more about diplomacy and international relations. In my leisure time I love to broaden my culinary horizon and to make desserts of all kinds.

am 21 years old and a third year law student. In my leisure time I love to spend my time outside and I volunteer at a student exchange organisation. I started MUN in my first year at the University of Berne to get to know new people and learn more about the UN. MUN definitely did not disappoint, it further gave me international friendships from conferences abroad, and an insight into diplomacy, international negotiations and world politics. So I'm excited to start my third year, still being a part of MUN.

I’m a Social Sciences major and joined MUN in my first semester. What I love about MUN is that I get to discuss world politics in a fun and engaging way while improving my speaking and negotiation skills. I also appreciate the friends I made and all the people I met at different conferences abroad. In my free time I like to read, work on my language skills and spend time with my dogs.

My name is Linda and I am a 4 year law student. After participating in the seminar and the international MUN conference in Scotland (ScotMUN), there was no other choice for me than becoming a part of MUN Bern. What I really like about MUN is the possibility to combine discussions about complex topics, international experience and leisure time all at once. I am looking forward to a year full of experience with great people.

I`m a 5thsemester law student that loves to hike, paint and write, but I wanted to put my energy into a seminar that fit my interest in international politics. I didn’t have to search for long: From diplomacy to negotiation tactics, MUN had it all. There was so much to discover and the atmosphere of the seminar mase it easy to ask questions and feel understood. That’s why I decided that I wanted to hold onto the memories we created just a bit longer and joined the board!
