Dear all,

Welcome to Thessaloniki International Student Model United Nations 2019!

My name is Ilia Papadimitriou and I have the honour to serve as the Secretary General of ThessisMUN 2019.

I was born and raised in Thessaloniki, where I studied International and European Studies in the University of Macedonia. The objective of my studies covers a wide range of subject areas related to international political and economic affairs. I worked for almost a year as an intern at the European Parliament while I was writing my thesis about socialism and media in Europe.

My experience in MUNs started in ThessisMUN2015 as a staff member. This was only the beginning since after that I took part in several conferences as a delegate and board member. My participation gave me the opportunity to attain a full-understanding of the UN system and discuss upon the pressing matters of our times. Apart from that, I earned one of the most important things in life, friendships.

All these years of my studies I tried to promote innovative learning processes, such as ThessisMUN, in the university. I personally believe that only through their educational system could countries achieve their goals in their economy and public policy.

I will be at your disposal for anything you may need and I am looking forward to meet you in person.

Best Regards,
Ilia Papadimitriou
