Maria Despoina Patouna
President of the General Assembly
My name is Maria Patouna, I am currently an IB1 student in Costeas-Geitonas School and it is my utmost honour to address you as the President of the General Assembly in the 14th CGS MUN. I got involved with Model UN 4 years ago, when I became a member of my school's club: fascinated by the complexity of the arena of politics and the art of diplomacy, it instantly became my passion. Since then, I have participated in 14 conferences, both domestically and abroad, each one offering me a unique, life-changing experience. MUN has undeniably shown me an open-minded way of thinking and contributed in the formation of my concept of the modern world. My wish for this year’s conference is that it is a most creative, rewarding and memorable experience for all the participants. I can’t wait to welcome you all in December!
