“Dear Delegates, My name is Natasha Vale and I am putting myself forward for the role of President of the London Met MUN Society. This is my first year at London Met and I am studying Criminology and International Security. When I joined the Society, at the beginning of the year, I felt welcomed and supported and, therefore, I was motivated to enthusiastically participate in its activities. Now that the Society is transitioning to a new phase, I would like to provide new members with the very same experience. Furthermore, I aim to reach out to more people and bring more members to the Society, keep members engaged by organizing regular simulations and events, inform them about interesting topics and relevant talks, and actively communicate with everyone. I will put myself available for helping members with any issue they may encounter and be open to suggestions for further developing the Society. I also intend to maintain the friendly and positive atmosphere shared by its members. I am an organized, responsible and hardworking person which I believe that together with my decision making and communication skills will be key for acting in the best interests of the London Met MUN Society. Finally, as you know, the current President and Vice President, Klara and Adrianna, will be graduating by the end of this year. I would like to thank them for the amazing job they did while running the Society and the unique opportunities they provided to its members. I would be extremely honoured if I was chosen to be President and have the chance to continue the good work.”

“To all delegates, London Met MUN holds a very dear place in my heart. I am nearing the end of my second year as Secretary and Treasurer of the society and have enjoyed every moment spent working with Klara and Adrianna. With my final year at London Met coming up, I am now ready to step up! I am therefore running for President of London Met MUN. It would be a true honour for me to lead this society through a new academic year. I cannot stop being amazed at how much energy and enthusiasm has been poured into London Met MUN and am determined on keeping up the hard work and passion! Working with Klara and Adrianna has taught me so much. It really fills me with so much pride to have been a part of the society’s journey, from dormant 2 years ago to an ever-growing, dynamic society today. If you choose to put your trust in me, I vow to do my utmost to maintain the standards and progress achieved so far. – In terms of the society itself, I will endeavour to keep it inclusive by promoting it across all courses, as well as multicultural, to the image of the university. – In terms of the society’s activities, I would continue organising exciting and interactive events and simulations as well as ensuring delegates get the opportunity to participate in as many MUN conferences both nationally and internationally as possible. But to add on to this, I would like to boost the university’s openness as well as its reputation externally. – Internally, I would like to push the society’s approachability for those students wishing to join at a later stage of the year. Regular workshops would be organised in order for these students to familiarise themselves with rules of procedure, also benefiting current delegates who would get the opportunity to host these workshops, in order to share their insight and know how. Indeed, you are all a part of London Met MUN and it wouldn’t be where it is today without all of your hard work! – Externally, I would like to create partnerships with other universities, enabling delegates to meet students from other institutions as well as enhancing their simulation skills in order to better prepare them for conferences. I hope I have convinced you all of my motivation and passion for this society. Whatever the outcome of these elections, I look forward to another year of rich debates and conferences with you! Attia Secretary and Treasurer London Met MUN”

“Hello. My name is Robert Meyer-Funnell and I am a first-year student studying Sociology and Social Policy. I have been a member of the Model UN since December, though you may not have seen me at many meetings. Me and many people I have spoken to have found it difficult to get involved in these societies – often meeting dates and times are hard to find or just not publicised. This is a great shame as I think the Model UN does great work and I believe that there are many people around campus who would love to get more involved. My ambition is to expand the reach of the society, involving more people and organising more activities across the university, enabling us to have a greater impact both within London Met and beyond it’s walls. Together we can take a pro-active approach, both to publicity and our work, and this can cultivate the kind of momentum and enthusiasm that will make this society shine. I am a member of the GlobalNet21 Group, which meets regularly on campus and at political meetings to discuss the Millennium Development Goals. They would welcome more involvement from groups such as the Model UN and this would be ideal for the society to widen it’s scope both intellectually and in terms of activity and recruitment. I have also been working with the SU to set up a Labour Party Society, which has opened us up to communication from groups such as Labour Students and cross-university debating societies. There has been a lot of interest – I know of many students who are already involved in local politics and would be more than happy to work with us and their experience would be a large asset for the Model UN. This wider co-operation can benefit all groups. Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.”

“Honorable Delegates London Met MUN has been a big part of my time at this university, I have been involved with it for the past 3 years and have gained valuable experience watching the way Klara and her team have made this society one of the best societies that London Met has got. Over the past few years I have been fortunate enough to represent London Met MUN in International Conferences such as LIMUN and Edinburgh MUN which were both fantastic. After years of been an active member of our society, I believe, I have gained enough experience to put my name up for the position of vice presidency of this society. If you elect me as your vice president, I promise to work hard to preserve the great work that has been done to make this society what it is today, and will do my utmost best to improve wherever we fall short. I will respectfully work with all of you and value your opinions on matters that involve the work that the society should do in order to make it, one that every member is proud and happy to be part of. I hope to get your vote in order to start serving this great society. Thank you”
