After the Opening ceremony, we had a very interesting and instructive panel on the topic of 📗African continent after the pandemic: a step backwards or a possible path to prosperity?📗

We hosted three speakers - Ms Natalia Al Mansour (Head of Department for Africa and the Middle East at the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Dr Maja Bučar (Professor at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences) and Mr David Tavželj (Executive Manager at ICPE)🌍📈

Even though there were some technical difficulties (Zoom duh🤷), the discussion was very lively and fruitful!🍓🥝

We have the honour to introduce our third chairing pair, the Chairs of the SC - Daria Kisseleva and Jonas Simorangkir!🤩✨

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION:
Jonas Simorangkir is a third-year Biology student at the University of Bonn, Germany. Coming from Indonesia and growing up in the Philippines, he discovered MUNs in high school. Since then, he has taken part in many different conferences, both online and offline, playing many different roles: Delegate, Chair, Crisis Director, Director-General, Under-Secretary General to Secretary-General, with a special place in his heart for UNSC, WHO, UNEP and Crisis Committees. Aside from his passion for MUNs, Jonas is a big fan of basketball, outdoor activities, reading and of course: cold drinks and rap music at the end of a long day. He hopes to bring all his experience to ensure high quality in Salient 2021 and excitedly wishes all the UNSC delegates the best in exploring the world of Model United Nations and working together to come to innovative and dynamic solutions!

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION:
Daria is pursuing a dual master’s degree in International Development and International Security.
She discovered MUN back in her first year of university in Paris and has been involved for a while now, in every capacity from delegate to Secretariat, and everything in between! Growing up between two countries with fairly different cultures, Daria’s favourite part about MUN is meeting people from different
cultural backgrounds and exploring the diversity of points of view. In her spare time, she enjoys learning new languages, playing the guitar and
meeting with her MUN friends from all over the world. She is deeply convinced that Model UN can be a great tool to create positive
change, and serving as the Chair of UNSC at SalientMUN 2021 is a true honour for her!

We have the honour to introduce our second chairing pair, the Chairs of the CCPCJ - Bor Grobelšek and Matthias Van Ongevalle!🤩✨

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION:
A bachelor of defence studies at the University of Ljubljana, Bor reached into the field of the economy currently finishing his second year at the Moscow State University. An avid follower of international politics for many years, MUNs are a perfect fit. He has always strived on representing his country faithfully and defending his position with passion and fervour. After participating as a delegate at various national and international MUN conferences, chairing has become a new passion of his. Taking great interest both in recent events and history, you will never run out of topics to discuss with him. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, listening to music and enjoying Russian culture.

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION:
22 years old and student business economics at KU Leuven. From an early age, I have always been fascinated by Leonardo da Vinci. Just like with the grandmaster, my interests are all over the place. This translated, among other things, from learning to control all kinds of driving, shipping & aircraft and understanding the underlying mechanics & science; about practising various musical instruments & sports; to exploring museums & learning the history of different cultures and languages. In short, anything that is international or that generates adrenaline will immediately blow my mind.

We have the honour to introduce our first chairing pair, the Chairs of the African Assembly - Raoul Cardellini and Glynn Cooreman!🤩✨

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION:
I´m Raoul Cardellini, the 24-year-old half Italian and half German Law student. During the six months I spent in Leuven, Belgium, as part of my Erasmus experience, I became a member of the local MUN association (KULMUN), and have not stopped pursuing MUN ever since. In my (not much) free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and (unsurprisingly) trying to attend as many MUNs as possible. Having attended Salient in 2020, I am looking forward to meeting both old and new faces alike, and can only hope my excitement is shared by you all as well!

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION:
Glynn is currently pursuing her Master of Laws at the KU Leuven in Belgium. Academically, she is most interested in IP/IT law, mediation and tax law. Her MUN experience encompasses appearances as ExCom, delegate, chair, and Secretary-General in several MUNs (both on- and offline). In her spare time, she enjoys watching true crime documentaries, muay Thai, travelling to unusual places and attending concerts (having replaced the latter two by reading books and listening to Spotify for the time being).
She looks forward to chairing the African Assembly at Salient 2021 and hopes to see a bunch of delegates on the virtual floor of the conference this summer.

🥁Drum roll, please🥁

We have the honour to present the Secretary-General of the Salient 2021 - Leonie Quentmeier!✨

🌟SHORT INTRODUCTION🌟
Hello everyone, my name is Leonie and I am serving as Secretary-General for Salient 2021.
I am from Germany, where I currently study Political Science and Arab Studies as my second bachelor. I started MUNing in 2016 when a dear friend of mine organized the Conference in Bonn and convinced me to participate. Never in the world, I would have thought that this is something for me. I was taught better and since then I participated in numerous MUNs around Europe as a delegate, chair or editor. Last year, Salient was my first online MUN and it was a blast. And I am convinced that this Edition will bring every one of us at least the same amount of fun.
