Secretary General

Fellow MUNOG-participants,

Dear visitors of the official MUNOG website,

welcome to MUNOG 2021!

My name is Karoline Wedekind, I am 17 years old and this year’s Secretary General. MUNOG 2021 will be my fourth MUN conference since I attended the past three MUNOG conferences as a member of the SimStaff, as a Delegate and eventually as the Deputy Secretary General. Currently I am in the eleventh grade of our hosting school.

Besides my passion for MUN conferences, I love to play tennis and to do creative things like drawing or painting. In addition, I am passionate about singing and dancing in the school choir of the GGS, as well as spending time with my friends.

I am really looking forward to MUNOG 2021 to see and to experience what our hardworking organizing team has set up, and I hope I will meet many passionate und open-minded students, who are as excited as I am for this year’s conference.

I wish you all a great time with amazing debates and much fun. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

So, see you in October!

Yours sincerely

Dear participants of MUNOG 2021,

My name is Anastasia Ristovski. I am 16 years old and I will be in the 11th grade of our hosting school when MUNOG takes place.

I am the Deputy Secretary General of this year’s conference.

Besides my interests in MUNs I love playing the piano, singing and dancing in our school choir and meeting my friends in my free time.

Moreover, as a member of the Sim Staff during the conference of MUNOG 2019 and as a delegate of MUNOG 2020 - unfortunately just in the online rehearsal debates - I noticed how much I love the idea behind this project. Especially the atmosphere and the debates but also getting in contact with all of you make this conference such a special event.

Therefore, I am truly excited and can’t wait for MUNOG 2021 to get started and I genuinely hope for fruitful, interesting debates and an unforgettable time for everyone.

Kim Wolf

Kim Wolf
Executive Director of CM

Fellow MUNOG participants,

My name is Kim Michelle Wolf, I’m 17 years old and one of the Executive Directors of Conference Management of MUNOG 2021 together with Vincent Pedde.

My First MUN experience was in 2019 as an Advisor. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and be part of such a big event. This experience encouraged me to become part of the Conference Management Team to learn more about the conference idea and the general process of organization. I always enjoy organizing things. Therefore, I believe I can handle the Conference Management challenges very well.

Since MUNOG 2020 could not take place because of corona, I was - unfortunately - not able to work in my position as one of the two Deputy Directors of Conference Management.

In my free time I dance Rock n Roll, give dance lessons for kids, and sing in the choir and our school band “Hills of Gold”.

I’m looking forward to MUNOG 2021 and seeing the result of one year of hard work. I hope all the participants will have a lot of fun in their sessions so that they will always remember MUNOG as an amazing experience.

Sincerely,

Kim Michelle Wolf

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at MUNOG 2021.

Yours,

Julia Penner

Julia Penner
Sponsoring Manager

Hello to you all,

I´m happy to welcome you to MUNOG 2021! My name is Julia Penner and I´m 17 years old.

In the last few years, I took part at MUNOG in various positions. As a member of the Logistics Staff in 2017, the Service Staff in 2018 and then one of the Heads of Food and Beverages in 2019. I have gained a lot of experience in different fields until I took the position of the Head of Sponsoring last year, which I fill this year as well.

In my free time I enjoy acting (which, sadly, is a bit difficult these days), playing the trombone or just reading a good book. Also, I`m interested in everything about sciences, especially physics and chemistry.

For me, MUNOG means international cooperation, solidarity and friendship. It´s a symbol of the importance of respect and standing together no matter how difficult the problems we´re facing are, how deep the crises.

I´m profoundly convinced, that this year's MUNOG will be a different one - different, but in a good way, that provides new experiences, which will help us in the future.

So, I´m really looking forward to seeing you in October at our conference!

Best regards,

Julia Penner

Luka Vrbljan

Luka Vrbljan
Deputy Media Manager

Hello everyone,

My name is Luka, and I am 16 years old and I am the Deputy Media Manager.

This will be my first MUNOG experience, so I decided to join the Executive Committee and see how the organization works.

In my free time I love doing sport. Before corona I did Judo. I also listen to music (almost every genre) and I play the guitar. At the moment, some of my favourite bands are Sunrise Avenue, Iron Maiden, Sabaton and Dire Straits but that changes every week.

Not so long ago I discovered skating as a new sport for me and now I skate with my friends, every now and then.

Playing poker is one of my hobbies as well and I’m always open to learn something new.

I love meeting new people and hanging out with my friends. That is why I chose to join MUNOG, because I think this will be a great experience with regard to politics and a great opportunity to meet new people and find new friends.

Best regards,

Luka Vrbljan

Erika Blehm

Erika Blehm
Head of Photography

Dear delegates and participants of MUNOG 2021,

My name is Erika Blehm, and I´m really looking forward to having my first MUNOG experience as one of the two Heads of Photography. As I have already done a lot of photography projects in my free time, it became obvious that this position is going to suit me best.

I´m a 17-year-old student of the Goldberg-Gymnasium Sindelfingen and always wanted to take part in MUNOG, but since there were many other international school projects, such as Erasmus and student exchange programs, which interfered with the MUNOGs schedule, this was just not possible for me.

That´s why I´m glad to participate this year and do my best sto apply my extensive photography knowledge.

See you at MUNOG!

My name is Antonio Novakovic, I am 17 years old and this year of MUNOG I will be one of the two Heads of Photography.

For a long time already, I have seen MUNOG as a great opportunity to test my English skills and as a place where anything is possible. For example, to make new friends and to learn about other cultures. However, I have participated at MUNOG only once, as a member of the Press Team back in 2019.

Something that is important to know about me is that I love photography. But not just that. I am an MMA athlete and I also love to read and draw.

Just like everyone else I am looking forward to meeting you all and having a great time to share experiences together.

Yours sincerely,
