Hi! I am Aleksandra Jakób. My whole life is about art, more precisely playing piano, singing and drawing. On the other hand I love traveling and learning new languages, meeting new people, simplifying- living the adventure. A year ago, I was the exchange student in the U.S which have helped me to learn about myself, who I am and what I want. I have become the passionate student of the IB program through which I can fulfill my plans for the future and encourage what is in store ahead of me! I have learned about MUN from the people from my class. My co- chair Aleksandra Wasylów has helped me to come up with the decision to represent the committee on her side Dear honorable delegates, I believe, together we will make the upcoming session the unforgettable experience! I am looking forward to see You there on November!
Aleksandra Wasylów: I sincerely believe in the validity of human rights and social issues. For me, it is critically important not to neglect social and environmental problems, and be active in mitigating them. As the chair of the Economic and Social Comission for Europe, I am aiming to bring open-mindedness and trustworthiness in order to lead the debates worthily. Personally, I devote most of my time to drawing and painting. I place the broadly understood artistic exploration on a pedestal in order to develop and enhance my abilities. Additionaly, I consider travelling, understanding diverse cultures and acquring knowledge about them paramount at this stage of my life.
