Fellow delegates, distinguished visitors,
Welcome to our website, and hopefully, our society. I thought this was going to be one of the easy parts of the job, but here I am, wondering what to write. First, allow me to introduce myself, I am Elissa Khalifé, president of Paris II Panthéon-Assas’ Model United Nations society.
During my school years, MUNs have always intrigued me, but I never actually had the courage to participate in one. When I arrived to Assas as a third-year law student, one of my friends suggested that I join her in the first training session saying that it will change my life, and believe me, as cliché as this sounds, it did. Model United Nations have taught me to speak publicly with no fear, to embrace my ideas with audacity, and most importantly to win arguments in the most diplomatic way possible.
My team and I are dedicated to making this experience unforgettable for you, whether it be during our training sessions, or through our participation in many international conferences. Don’t be shy, don’t let your fear of English or oral expression get in the way of living the MUN experience, come to our training sessions and embrace the diplomat in you!
Hoping that many young curious minds will join us,
