Whilst MUNAM aims at preparing students for MUN conferences, Niklas obviously learned it the hard way.
He attended a conference first and then became part of the MUNAM Delegation Project 2019/20 which equipped him with skills and knowledge that might have proven useful for him before.
Niklas is a business graduate from LMU Munich. Currently in a gap year between bachelor’s degree and further studies, he serves as President of MUNAM. Niklas is delighted to steer the association through another term of uncertainty, keeping this platform of debate and education, joy and academic exchange alive as well as developing it further.

Vice President for Financial Affairs
Justin was born in a suburb of Munich and spent his entire primary and secondary education there. Nevertheless, having both a family spread across the globe and being born to a pilot on his mother’s side enabled him to travel to various regions of the world and thus experience different cultures.
This is where MUNAM comes into play. Offering both the opportunity to deepen his understanding of international politics and to meet new and interesting people, it did not take him long to sign up. After having an amazing experience during the 2020/21 Delegation, he has now joined the Board as Vice President for Financial Affairs. Whilst having no experience in this field, he hopes to actively shape the future of MUNAM.
In his free time, he likes to play tennis and read books of different subjects, where he is particularly interested in history. He also likes music, where he is a passionate concertgoer. The occasional TV show and video game is also part of his weekly routine.
Vice President for Internal Affairs
