Omar Ould Ali
Omar is a Moroccan first-year student in International Politics and Government at Bocconi University. His passion for politics sprouted from the very first MUN he attended back in his country of origin, at the city of Tangier (AST MUN). In 2015, Omar instantly fell in love with all of the conference’s aspects: the fierce debates between delegates, the diplomatic role-playing, the peculiarities of the conference's rules, absolutely everything.
During his junior year of high school, he decided to join a local MUN Club in Rabat, of which he became President the following year. Leading and representing the club, Omar participated in multiple national and international MUNs (AUIMUN, NAIMUN, Assabil MUN), and was awarded twice as Best Delegate. His favorite committee settings are the Historical Security Council (HSC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Beside Politics, Omar has many interests. He embraces philosophy as the womb of knowledge, is a passionate amateur poet, worships food and cooking, loves fantasy books and Mangas (they are his sanctuary of imagination and creativity), and finally he has an unbounded nerdy curiosity for science. More particularly, Omar is very interested in modern scientific fields, such as molecular gastronomy and quantum physics, and believes that an ideal Politician must have various and well-rounded knowledge (hence his exhaustive list of interests).
MUNs have contributed a lot to Omar’s life. Indeed many of his hobbies and interests originated from his social interactions during these conferences. But to Omar, Model UN was more than a path to self-discovery: it was a process through which he honed a large set of soft skills and an opportunity that allowed him to meet incredible friends and individuals.
This year, Omar is stepping out of the delegate spotlight to join the executive team: “I’ve had many amazing memories and experiences in my past MUNs, but it is now time for me to return the favor and hand to others the same joy and thrill that was once handed to me. So I will do my very best to make the MILMUN 2018 a successful and fun experience. See you this spring delegates!”
