Esteemed all,
My name is Georgia Giannakidou and it is my great pleasure to welcome you to ThessiSMUN2018 and to Human Rights Council, in which I have the great honor to serve as the Vice-President.

I am 21 years old, I was born and raised in Komotini. The last 3 years I live in Athens and I study Political Science and Public Administration at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, specializing in International and European studies while I am running my internship in the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs. As far as it concerns my academic interests, they are focused on the upcoming rise of China in the international community.

From an early age I had a great concern in politics and also in international relations. As a result, 5 years ago, when I was a high school student I have started to participate in conferences, for the first time as a delegate. Since then, I have participated in several Model United Nations (MUNs) and other simulations of the European Union, Regional and International Organizations, in Greece and internationally. As a result they became a part of my life. By this point my passion for international relations is constantly growing and growing.

Distinguished delegates of HRC, my honorable President Georgios, Inesa the High Commissioner of our Committee and I, assure you that we will provide you an unforgettable experience. Till then keep in mind that the best ally is your diplomatic ability but it is not only about your diplomatic act but also it’s about the tact.
