Hello everyone! My name is Noemi Simon, and I am currently studying law in my 4th year in Heidelberg. I started my MUN journey in my first semester when I applied for the Harvard WorldMUN Society in Heidelberg. I enjoy the internationality of the MUN conferences and the people who are open-minded and interested in international affairs. I am currently participating in a MootCourt dealing with UN Sales Law and International Arbitration.
Apart from these, I enjoy baking and road cycling.
I am honoured to be a chair of the UNHRC at the 10th edition of KaMUN and really looking forward to meeting you all next week!
Fun Fact: I met my boyfriend at my first KaMUN conference in 2018.
Bo Sixt Finck
My name is Bo Finckh and I am currently procrastinating by chairing KaMUN while I should be studying for my state exam in law in spring 2022.
Apart from law, I enjoy having multiple hobbies that somehow switch every other month.
After hosting VirtualMUN, the first conference using MUNCommand, I did what never works and retired from MUN – here I am!
I’m looking forward to seeing you all and I hope that we’ll have a great time!
Fun Fact: I was happily in a relationship with my best friend before Noemi stole him from me at her first KaMUN conference in 2018
