Dear MUNers, meet the Secretary-General of Lyon Model United Nations 2017 edition!
If you like Lyon MUN, you should already know and love Mélanie Villar; but if you don’t know her, it’s not too late! Last year, on top of studying International Relations, Intergovernmental Organizations and NGOs in a Master’s program at Jean Moulin Lyon 3 University, Mélanie was also the President of Lyon MUN and oversaw the preparation of the whole conference. Thanks to the success of Lyon MUN 2016 edition, the staff of the organization have decided to keep Mélanie in charge, along side our Director who is another familiar face.
However, she is not just an organizer. She’s a real MUN addict! Last year, Mélanie traveled across Europe to participate in numerous MUNs. She was able to attend the renowned WorldMUN, as well as other famous European MUNs such as LIMUN and MEDMUN. But she has mostly participated in local MUNs where she was able to share her passion with a wide range of participants.
Furthermore, Mélanie has worked hard to shed more light on the MUN scene in France. She has organized multiple workshops, and with her iconic phrase ‘What is a MUN?’ she has helped new students TO discover and enjoy the MUN experience.
Above all, your new Secretary-General is a woman full of ambition, happiness and surprises, and you will find all of these features in the preparation of our 2017 conference!
