5 Questions to Benjamin Alford: Finance Director for SPRIMUN 2017

benjaminBenjamin, you are responsible for the finances of the 5th edition of SPRIMUN. We would like to know more about you and your role in this event.

What do you enjoy the most in a MUN?

What makes a MUN special is first and foremost the delegates who take part in it. My fondest memories of MUNs come from the heated debates I had with delegates who were on the top of their game on the floor, but who were also turning up the heat on the dancefloor during the socials.

Why have you decided to join the SPRIMUN organization team?

So far I’ve enjoyed three great SPRIMUNs, including last year’s one where I represented the United States during a crisis committee in which humanity was tragically cut short by a series of nuclear explosions. The SPRIMUN is always a MUN that is great fun and I’m hoping to play my part in making this year’s edition the best ever.


Can you give us a secret away about SPRIMUN 2017?

I have heard a rumour that this year’s secretariat is one of the sexiest ever, but I cannot confirm or deny this for the moment. Delegates will no doubt have to come to the SPRIMUN to find out if there is any truth behind it.


What is your biggest dream?

I’ve always found it very easy to dream, so to choose the biggest of them all is quite a task. While I could pick quite a few noble dreams, some more individualistic ones, and even a few realistic ones, my biggest dream without a doubt would be to see my favourite football team, Southampton FC, win the Premier League.

What makes you very happy?

Pleasing me is not a very hard thing. Even a bad joke can sometimes make me laugh my socks off. But I’m by far my happiest when I’m in arm’s reach of some form of alcohol and surrounded by friends I can have fun with.
I’m also more than likely to be very happy to meet you when you come to Rennes for the 2017 SPRIMUN so don’t forget to sign up once applications open! 😉


Many thanks for your answers and see you soon at the conference !
