Marie Elise, you are responsible for the Committees of the 5th edition of SPRIMUN. We would like to know more about you and your role at this event.
→ What do you enjoy the most in a MUN?
Participating in a MUN is both enjoyable on a professional and on a social level. In three days, you get to know more about global politics, you can experience public speaking and you can meet people from all around the globe, it really is enriching. I always feel very sad when a MUN is over, because it is so intense and it is a real escape from ‘normal life’.
→ Why have you decided to join the SPRIMUN organization team?
I have been involved in MUN activities for quite some time now, having been a delegate, a chair, and the President of Sciences Po’s MUN society. I felt like it was high time to try and see how a MUN was made from scratch.
→ Why is SPRIMUN 2017 a must-attend event?
First, the team is highly motivated and all of the members have a strong experience regarding MUNs. Everyone knows what they are doing, so you should definitely expect an unforgettable conference. We will furthermore have a new committee in French – the Human Rights Council/Conseil des droits de l’homme – and this is definitely a must-try this year.
→ What are your strengths and weaknesses in life?
I think that when I am involved in a project I do it as seriously as I can. But on the other hand I can be too bossy and I know that, for instance, when I chair I really don’t like it when it is too relaxed, I’d rather see the debate moving forward until the very last minute of the debate than joking on undiplomatic matters.
→ What is the most important value that one could uphold in your eyes?
Many thanks for your answers and see you soon at the conference !
