The secretariat perform a vital role in IsarMUN 2019, fulfilling all the academic and substantial part of the conference. They are also a wealth of information and experience for IsarMUN to draw upon throughout the conference and beyond.
Philippe Lefevre is a Third Year History and Politics student at the University of York. He has been doing MUN for three years now, and if you ask him, has contracted an addiction to the sport. To date he has stumbled his way into over thirty conferences across ten countries but could not be prouder than his role for IsarMUN 2019, a conference close to his heart. He enjoys pushing the boundary of MUN, it’s capability and the role it can play in engaging youth into the ever complicated globalized world. As well as MUN, Philippe also Chairs the Institute for a Greater Europe, and is fascinated by the role Europe has to play in the world, as well as European integration in general.
Deputy Secretary General
Abdelrahim Abdallah (more commonly known as Rimo) is an Egyptian student at the University of Mannheim in Germany. In 2011, the Egyptian Revolution inspired him to become politically active, participating in numerous MUN conferences in Europe, Asia and Africa. In 2016, he co-founded ESKMUN in Cairo, attracting participants from all around the Middle East. Under his leadership as Secretary-General, ESKMUN 2018 hosted the first German-speaking MUN council in the region and generally raised the bar for other Egyptian MUNs. Now in college, Abdelrahim is a Student Consultant with INTEGRA e.V., the management consultancy of the University of Mannheim, and continues to chair and lead MUNs both in Europe, such as EuroMUN and IsarMUN, as well overseas, such as Asia Youth Model UN 2019 in Kuala Lumpur.
In his (rare) free time, Abdelrahim enjoys travelling the world and reading diverse Arabic, English and German literature. In IsarMUN 2019, Abdelrahim is very excited to serve as Deputy Secretary-General, hoping to make it a true sensation.
Under Secretary Generals
Currently doing a masters in European and International Studies at Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle, Camille is half French and half Lebanese. She has been doing MUNs since January 2015 and quickly fell in love with the whole UN Simulation system. She even had the chance to do an internship at UNESCO and have a true UN experience.
After chairing at IsarMUN last year, she decided to continue this experience by applying as part of the Secretariat as one of the USG Academics for IsarMUN 2019.
Bene (short for Benedikt) is 22. After going for a degree in philosophy & economics he has started an engineering degree at the TUM last October. He loves combining the fields of decision making and ethics with quantitative research and hopes to pursue this interest later in his job. Currently he is in Lisbon for an internship and is already looking forward to meeting up with the people from IsarMUN when he ́s back in Munich. Fun Fact: After spending some time in Scotland and having watched Trainspotting like way too many times he sounds like strange version of Gordon Ramsay.
Inés Faghihi is currently a 21 years old German Economics and Business bachelor student at the University of Groningen. During IsarMUN, she will do her Master in Economic Development and Globalisation. Her Model United Nation path began in 2013 and over the past years she has participated in more than 20 MUNs or MEPs all around Europe as a delegate, a chair or the secretariat. Next to her passion for international political and economic affairs and her lifelong dream to work at the UN, she shares her heart with an equally big passion: ballroom dancing. This year is going to be her third time participating in IsarMUN and she is extremely excited to be able to shape her favourite conference as one of the Under Secretary Generals for Academics.
