Çılga Merten

USG Public Relations

Çılga is a student at the Cologne University. Being part of the first generation of Model UN students at her high school shaped her life in the best way possible. As someone who loves international exchange she quickly realised how at home she felt in the world of MUN. She took part in several high school MUNs as well as a youth peace conference and is eager to connect with many more people from many more countries in the future.
Apart from MUN, Çılga loves going after literally anything that sparks her interest and preferably has that sort of “international spark”. She also lived in Japan for a year and is always ready to have a nice chat about the country, though her lack of knowledge of otaku culture hinders her from answering most questions about manga or anime.

Friederike Kühl

USG Finance

Friederike is currently enrolled in a B.Sc. program of Economics at University of Cologne. She believes that international relations and diplomacy are two of the most important and effective ways real political and social change can be achieved. MUN enables her to put these believes into action and fuse them with her passion for heated debates, political exchange and negotiations.
Friederike has been engaged in MUN debates and conferences since 2018 and is excited to be part of the CologneMUN 2020 Executive Board and Secretariat!
