My name is Elli Tsitsipa and I will have the honor to serve as the President of the General Assembly of ThessISMUN 2018. I have obtained a Law degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and I am now pursuing my post graduate studies in international law. Since my freshman year, a have participated in numerous simulations, both as a delegate and as a chair person. Finding many aspects of international law and relations interesting, I have participated in various committees related to topics such as international financing and sustainable development, human rights, disarmament and international security.
Participating in ThessISMUN is a rewarding experience, as you will get the chance to research and debate on interesting topics, make new acquaintances with students that share the same interests as you and develop relationships that will last a lifetime. To that end, I would like to encourage you to be confident, to not hesitate to raise your voice and form an opinion and always show respect to your fellow participants.
That being said, I am always at your disposal and I will do my very best to make this year’s ThessISMUN the best one yet!
