Dominik, born in 1994, grew up in Munich and attended Kurt Huber Gymnasium in Gräfelfing. He served as head boy and editor-in-chief of the school magazine and participated in a couple of extracurriculars like theatre, orchestra and debating. Playing the piano since the age of six, Dominik performed publicly very early, thus establishing classical music as his major hobby. After his graduation in 2012, he moved to Italy to study piano performance, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in music from the Conservatory of Trento in 2015. Subsequently, he returned to Munich where he is currently pursuing a law degree at Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU). His studies are furthered by scholarships of both the German National Academic Foundation and the Cusanuswerk. Dominik works as a student research assistant at the Chair of Public Law and State Philosophy at LMU and as a freelance piano teacher. Maintaining an avid concern for international politics and law-making since practically forever, he joined the MUNAM Delegation Project in 2016 which got him in touch with the world of ModelUN and proved to be a highly addictive environment. As part of the MUNAM Delegation he participated in IsarMUN 2016, Harvard WorldMUN 2017 and EuroMUN 2017. Dominik served as Deputy Secretary-General of IsarMUN 2017 in Munich and was appointed Secretary-General of MUNSC Salient in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2018. Trusted with the position of the Chairman and driven by his own experiences in the club, he is committed to expand the role of MUNAM e.V. as an integral part of Munich’s landscape of student societies as a melting pot for curious individuals from all disciplines.

Ismail, born in 1995, was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt where he attended a German foreign school until 2013. Upon graduating, he moved to Munich to pursue a degree in Economics at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) where he is currently enrolled in a two-year Master of Science program. Growing up in Egypt and actively witnessing the Arab Spring at the age of sixteen made Ismail develop a growing interest in politics and international affairs. He attended his first ModelUN conference in 2011 and, seven years and countless conferences later, still considers every conference an enriching experience on an academic as well as on a personal level. Since joining the MUNAM Delegation Project in 2014, Ismail held various positions throughout the society, such as Secretary-General of IsarMUN 2015 and Faculty Advisor for the Delegation of 2017/2018 and is eager to apply his knowledge and experience to further develop MUNAM e.V. and realize the projects the board has planned. He is especially excited at the prospect of introducing a new generation of enthusiastic students to the world of Model UN.
Ophelia is a student of political sciences and law at LMU with focus on European politics and law, international relations and civil rights and freedoms. In the course of her studies she joined university excursions to Vienna, Brussels and Moscow and served an internship for a member of parliament at the Deutsche Bundestag. Pursuing her passion for political and social issues, Ophelia took part in MUNAM’s delegation project in 2016/17 and was awarded with the Best Delegate Award at IsarMUN 2016. In her year abroad at UBC Vancouver, she joined the local MUN society MUNSA and won the Position Paper Award at NWMUN 2017 for her paper on intersecting discrimination of women. Working as a technology scout in a non-for-profit innovation network has further inspired Ophelia’s interest in the impact of new technologies on society and power structures. Together with the other board members, Ophelia hopes to shape MUNAM and its delegation project meaningfully to sustain and create an inclusive and open-minded society and a place of learning, networking and thriving.
