“It is not the Soviet Union or indeed any other big Powers who need the United Nations for their protection. It is all the others.”
– Dag Hammarskjöld, UN Secretary-General 1953-1961

It is Amy’s pleasure to be chairing DISEC for you at CologneMUN! She did her Bachelor’s at the University of Zurich and will be starting her Master’s at King’s College London in September doing Philosophy. MUN has become a big part of her life ever since she started doing it in 2016. She has made some of her favorite memories and met some of her best friends at MUN conferences. She has been a delegate for DISEC many times before, such as at Cuimun and Oximun, and recently chaired DISEC at her home conference in Zurich. Perhaps a fun story to finish off this short introduction: This photo was taken by Natalie Joray, who is chairing ICJ at CologneMUN this year, during a four-cabinet crisis on the Napoleonic Wars in Zurich, where Amy was informed that her directives were some of the best, even though she can firmly say she had absolutely no idea what she was doing! She is looking forward to meeting you all In Köln soon and do not hesitate to contact her should you have any questions about DISEC or herself.
