Imogen Gander

Publicity Officer

Imogen is a second year Classicist from Girton College. She has taken part in many MUN conferences both home and abroad, most recently at the ScotMUN conference at Edinburgh University. Her enthusiasm for MUN and the work of the UN as a whole means that she will use her role as Publicity Officer to encourage new members to the society, so that they too can experience a relevant, yet fun, way into current affairs. Her key aims for the next academic year are to raise awareness of what CUUNA entails, and to encourage those from all subjects to come together and discuss real world issues that will affect us as we leave university. 

 

She also hopes to be able to attend more conferences this year and would urge anyone who is unsure whether MUN is for them to take the opportunity to learn about a new country, meet new people, and have a fun weekend away from work!
