Anna-Sophie Weinstein is a first-year double degree student majoring in Law and Near and Middle Eastern studies at the LMU.
Creating an academic equilibrium and making room for her interest in mathematical logic she has been consulting on computational projects as a scientific assistant at SciKnowTec for over two years now.
Education being an issue very close to her heart, most of her extracurriculars evolve around it: Mentoring highly gifted students, being an active member of the student council for the law faculty and being highly involved with Model United Nations give her different approaches and perspectives to the topic which she enjoys very much.
Amazed by the MUN concept since she was 16 years old, she has taken part in numerous conferences in Germany and abroad as delegate, chair and secretariat member. She was very proud of being involved in the organization and chairing the first-ever German-speaking committee in the Arabic World at ESKMUN in Cairo this spring.
She currently speaks German, English and Portuguese fluently as well as some Arabic, French and Spanish.
Anna-Sophie is more than excited to serve as CEO/ Director General of IsarMUN 2018 and work with such an amazing team on another year of IsarMUN-greatness.
For Sebastian Eppelt MUN has been an integral part of his university life since he joined the Model United Nations Association Munich in 2015.
