President of the General Assembly
My name is Josephine Hellauer, an IB1 student at Frankfurt International School in Oberursel, Germany. It is my honor to serve as President of the General Assembly at the 16th session of the CGSMUN conference. As a MUNer of six years, I am no longer able to imagine what not doing MUN feels like. I could never have expected how much I would enjoy my first conference; that I would relish the experience so much. I was unable to quit, leading me to attend 16 conferences all across Europe, always hoping to learn a new trick here, learn a new debate-line there, and, most importantly, meet new people across the continent. MUN has not only strengthened my curiosity and expertise, but further improved my debating skills and critical thinking. I sincerely hope that this conference offers you the same and that it will be a memorable experience when you look back on your MUN experience. After all these years, I cannot think of a better preparation for the issues that will face this generation in the coming years. I cannot wait to meet you all in December.
