Felix Schwabbauer

Felix is a dedicated Social Sciences student in his second year of his B.Sc. Growing up in Luxembourg and graduating at the European School of Luxembourg resulted in a rather international background. After gathering his first model-diplomatic impressions at the Model European Council of the European Schools in 2014, he joined the Cologne MUN Society in 2016 and proved to be a motivated MUNer ever since. To him, becoming part of the Secretariat of the very first CologneMUN, was an “irresistible honour” and offering you a conference full of great debates, thrilling ceremonies and unforgettable socials a “pleasant duty”.
