Ananias Raftopoulos is a graduate student of the Department of Political Sciences in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

His first MUN conference dates back in 2008 and the virus spreads since. He has served as the Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization in ThessISMUN 2017, President of the League of Nations in MILMUN 2017, President of the 1st Committee of the GA in ThessISMUN 2018 and looks forward to serve as one of the Deputy Secretary Generals in ThessISMUN 2019.

Having participated in more than ten international MUNs, Ananias had the chance to delve into various issues of historical, political and international interest, such as the Napoleonic Wars, the struggle against terrorism, nuclear disarmament, human rights violations and the protection of the marine environment. He has also made friends from Turkey, Romania, Russia, Germany, Georgia France, Pakistan and India.

Apart from Greek, Ananias speaks English and French, struggles to learn Arabic and writes articles in Greek and foreign blogs. In his free time, he hikes the mountains of Greece, reads literature and writes poetry, cooks and feels sad that his guitar is gath-ering dust in a corner of his bedroom.
