2013 Secretariat

 

 VICTOR MYLONASVictor Mylonas
Secretary General

Greco-Bulgarian, with an International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma from an American High School and an expected Degree in Economics from Bocconi University, Victor has been passionate about International Affairs ever since he was a child. Being a supporter of the private sector as a means to public policy reformation, he has also engaged in internships at venues ranging from KPMG Auditing and Allianz Insurance to smaller companies in Italy, an NGO in Africa and the Consulate General of Greece in Boston, MA. Model United Nations, however, holds a most significant spot in his heart, since it has helped him develop more than any of the aforementioned activities. Having perpetually served as an award-winning Delegate, Chair and Secretary General at U.N. simulations both in the U.S.A. and Europe, he has come to realize that the value of public speaking permeates any and all aspects of our lives. Hence, he has founded the Bocconi MILMUN Club, hoping that he will also convey his love for debate to each and every one of the MILMUN 2013 Delegates, who he looks forward to meeting in person.
