Olga Kalašić – Vice President
My name is Olga Kalašić and I am currently an OSI Scholar at University College London doing a taught Master’s degree in Institutions, Development and Globalisation. My attention to international relations and the European Union in general increased decisively in my first year of undergraduate studies at Faculty of Economics Finance and Administration, where I attended several conferences concerning the European integration process and the role and importance of development of Serbia in many areas of its policies. Furthermore, I have gained a lot of experience in international relations by organizing the Belgrade International Model of the United Nations, where I represented Austria in the Security Council in 2009 and where I was the Vice-Chairperson in the General Assembly in 2010.
Despoina Papadopoulou – Vice President
Hello Everyone! My name is Despoina Papadopoulou, I’m 20 years old and I come from Greece. My field of expertise is International and European studies, a path I decided to walk when I was introduced to the inner workings of grand scale organizations such as E.U, through the Euroscola program. The MUN virus was the next step and so after my first MUN and 10 MUN after that one, in one year, I am happy to come back to the crime scene as a chair this time around. In addition to that I am an intern to the UNESCO Center for Women and Peace in the Balkans where my love for anything that has to do with human rights (especially those of children and women) is fully expressed. BEUM and wonderful Belgrade here we come !
