The Team Behind St. Gallen MUN Conference 2018
Marco is an Italian Bachelor student of International Affairs at the University of St.Gallen. He loves travelling and considers himself a person very much open to cultural diversity, as long as this cultural openness does not entail the freedom to put pineapple on pizza. Besides politics, his main interests are football and history. He has entered the world of MUN more than two years ago, when he attended MEDMUN 2016. Since then, he has participated in various conferences around Europe and taken over board duties at the local MUN club during the spring semester 2017. He looks forward to welcoming you all here in St.Gallen!
Leonard Castritius is a 20 year old German student at the University of St.Gallen. Before coming to Switzerland he graduated and lived in the wonderful city of Munich in Bavaria, where he discovered that the world has more to offer than just knowing where the best beer is brewed. Thus, after school he absolved a voluntary year in the German Mountain Infantry where he could intensively pursue his passion for all kinds of mountain sports before going to University. Leonard is an open and interested student who loves to learn about new cultures and their people. In his major in International Affairs he seeks to specifically engage in the teaching of international relations and cohabitation. Besides his studies he discovered the MUN society where he can critically discuss opinions and perspectives with people of similar interests from all around the world.
