Natalie Joray has joined the UNYA board in Autumn 2020. She has been involved in MUN since her last year in high school in 2016 and served as a public relations director of GIMUN, as well as the Secretary General for the GIMUN Conference 2021 while pursuing her bachelors in International Relations in Geneva. Currently, she's doing her Masters in Standardisation, Social Regulations and Sustainable Development at the University of Geneva. As she has profited both academically and professionally from her experiences with GIMUN and active MUNer, she'd love to provide new students with the same opportunities. She is dedicated to increase collaborations between the UNYA member associations and to contribute to the strengthening of the Swiss MUN network through common events, joint delegations and other networking opportunities.
Aral Arbatli has joined the UNYA board as a treasurer in Autumn 2021. Besides his engagement for UNYA, he is also the treasurer of MUN EPFL.
Amin Tlili studies Political Science and Law at the University of Zürich. He has joined the board in Autumn 2020 and has since then been assisting in projects whenever more manpower or expertise were of need. He began his MUN career at the St. Gallen MUN, and then, after continuing his studies in Zurich, joined the MUN Team UZH where he is currently serving my second term on the board. Throughout his MUN path I’ve been to many conferences and met many other Swiss MUNers, and those connections inspired him to join UNYA to enable connections like that for future MUNers still to come. Overall, his goal with UNYA is to strengthen Swiss MUN societies through cooperation
Nicolas is a 22-year-old student from Ticino, studying International Relations at the University of Geneva. From a young age, Nicolas was always interested in what was happening outside his region, abroad. For this reason, Nicolas pursed his post-secondary studies in Geneva, the epicenter of international relations. He then proceeded to join Geneva International Model United Nations (GIMUN) as a delegate and was later elected as the Secretary-General in 2021. Being very passionate on Model UN, he has already attended conferences in Russia, Spain, and Albania. On these occasions, he had the opportunity to forge links and gain experiences meeting a variety of people from different backgrounds. He looks forward to contributing to UNYA by bringing together young Swiss people, passionate about the world of Model UN.
Jennifer Angst has joined the UNYA board in Autumn 2022. She studies Law at the University of Zurich and has been a member of MUN Team UZH since 2019. In the academic year 2021/2022 she served as the Head of Communications for the MUN Team UZH executive board. Having experienced how Model United Nations not only brings students together and teaches them valuable skills, but also raises awareness about the United Nations among young people, she sees great potential in advancing MUN in Switzerland. She is committed to helping foster the relationship between MUN associations and creating a closer Swiss MUN community through UNYA.
