MEET THE TEAM
President of the Bocconi Students MILMUN Society
Martina is a 20-year-old Italian student pursuing a bachelor in International Politics and Government at Bocconi University, in Milan; and starting from January she will head off to Madrid for an exchange program at the IE Business School. She embraced the marvelous world of Model United Nations in 2015 by joining the MILMUN Society, and this year she has the honour to be MILMUN’s President.
Since 2015, Martina has participated both as a delegate and as a chair in numerous conferences at European level, including BERLINMUN, BIMUN and KULMUN. She has then been part of the Executive Committee as the marketing manager for MILMUN’s 2017 edition. These experiences have allowed her to have a 360-degree perspective of a Model United Nations conference. Additionally, Martina has worked for the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Dominican Republic, where she got acquainted with commercial and diplomatic relations among countries and she had the opportunity to practice her negotiation skills in pure Caribbean style.
It is a pleasure for Martina to be this year’s President of the Bocconi Students MILMUN Society, since she deeply believes in the values that MILMUN embraces, such as cultural exchange and international dialogue. Her multiple exchange and volunteer experiences abroad in countries such as Indonesia, Peru, and India can demonstrate it. Martina is clearly a travel-lover and every occasion is a good excuse for her to catch the first flight and explore the world (with a good photo-camera in the backpack).
Martina is thrilled to work with the members of the MILMUN Society and shape them into true MUN lovers, as her predecessors did with her. Having Sofia by her side will then make the task much more easy and joyful!
Sofia Di Cesare
Vice-President of the Bocconi Students MILMUN Society
Sofia comes from Rome and she is currently a second-year student enrolled in a Bachelor of International Politics and Government at Bocconi University. Her involvement in MUNs dates back to high school where her desire for debating and discovering new subjects was finally satisfied. Since the age of 15, she has participated in several Conferences including international ones in Istanbul, Chicago, and London. Last year she took part in MILMUN as the Chair of the Human Rights Council.
Now she serves as the Vice-President of Bocconi Students MILMUN Society, in the hope of transferring her knowledge and passion for MUNs to others.
Her main area of interest concerns environmental issues and related socio-economic rights. MUNs gave her the opportunity to further deepen the understanding of these topics, but mostly they increased her ability to build strong and long-lasting friendships with amazing and very talented people.
