USG for Press and Media
My name is Michelle and I grew up in Ticino, Switzerland. My father is Swiss, my mother comes from the USA, and my brother is originally from Thailand. Who am I? A piano-playing book-worm, a rock ‘n’ roll and hockey fan, and a language enthusiast. I hold a Bachelor’s in English and Italian literature, and am currently studying for my Master’s in English at UNIL. I fell in love with journalism after my first internship at the La Regione newspaper in 2015. In the meantime, I have also started a non-profit organization called Books For the Future after my participation in the 2016 CGI U conference.
I enjoy getting to know people from other cultures and this is my favorite aspect of the 2016 GIMUN AC (my first MUN). I was a journalist then, and now have come back as a USG PM. I am excited to be a part of the GIMUN team and super motivated to make this conference as memorable for you as it was for me!
