My name is Yannick Bargfeldt and I am happy and honoured to welcome you to GIMUN 2018 as one of the Under-Secretaries General for Committee Management. I am 24 years old and am currently studying English and Political Science at the University of Oldenburg.
I was born in Germany, but grew up in a German-British family.
My MUN history began in 2011 with my participation at the Oldenburg Model United Nations Conference as a Delegate. I was really impressed, that that huge event was organised solely by a group of pupils. At that time, I was sitting in the crowd looking up at the Chairs and the Secretariat and felt inspired by their enthusiasm and passion. That sparked my interest for international politics and I joined the organisation team right after the conference.
Since then, I have organised the OLMUN as part of the Secretariat twice. Apart from that, I have been to conferences in Berlin, Hamburg, Istanbul and Tel Aviv and have served as Chair, President, Crisis Room Director and Secretary General. This year`s GIMUN will be my 14th MUN conference.
I very much look forward to meeting you all in March!
