DISC President and Vice Presidents 2014
Sophia Papaspyropoulou - President
I was born and raised in Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece. I graduated from Anatolia College, the American High School of Thessaloniki, and currently I am studying law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I have always been intrigued by international law, international politics and foreign affairs and when in 2008 I discovered the magnificent world of MUNs, I knew I had found an activity that I wouldn’t give up easily. Since then I have participated in many MUN conferences both in Greece and abroad, either as a delegate or as a chairperson. All these simulations have enabled me to deal with exciting international issues, improve my negotiating skills and meet extraordinary young people. Apart from MUNs, I have also been involved in debating competitions during my high school years and last year I served as a member of the organizing committee for the 1st Model Greek Parliament. This year, I will have the honor to be the Chair in the GIMUN 2014 Disarmament Committee and thus I am grateful for two reasons: firstly, because I will be part of an exceptional MUN simulation, hosted in the beautiful city of Geneva, and secondly, because I will direct one of the most intriguing and exciting UN committees, DISEC.
Hélène Pilloud - Vice President
I was born and grew up in the city of Philadelphia, in the United States. Having just completed my Bachelor’s degree in Law at the University of Geneva, I am currently a student at the University of Lausanne for a Master's degree in International and Compared Law. After helping with the organization of last year’s annual conference as an Under Secretary General for Logistics, I am honored to be able to participate in this year’s conference as Vice President in the Disarmament and International Security Commission. I have always been passionate about different cultures as well as international affairs. Also, having the privilege of living in a city such as Geneva has offered me the chance to nurture and develop my passion. My first experience of GIMUN, in the annual conference of 2013, was an amazing and unforgettable one. I therefore am thrilled to be able to participate and acquire more practical skills this year. I feel like GIMUN represents a unique event for young minds to meet, debate and reflect upon current international issues, an opportunity that's worth seizing.
