Director: Antoine Lemonnier

Born and raised in France, my experience became international when I started university in Lyon for a Dual Bachelor of International Relations and Translation, where I had the opportunity to live in London, New York and explore several cities all around Europe. I discovered the MUN world in 2015 and since then have been addicted to it. I believe in the United Nations and its values, it carries a strong message of solidarity, hope and peace to humanity.
Starting in September, I will study Public Policy and Human Development in Maastricht at the United Nations University and Maastricht University.
