LIMUN APPOINTS NUDHARA YUSUF AS SECRETARY-GENERAL OF LIMUN: HS 2020
LONDON, UK (January 18, 2020) – The LIMUN Foundation today announces the appointment of Nudhara Yusuf as Secretary-General of LIMUN: HS. Her appointment takes effect immediately.
Nudhara Yusuf is currently pursuing her Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at the University College of London. She began MUN in India at the age of 15 and her passion for the skill grew as she quickly transitioned into delegating at the university level, Chairing MUNs across the State and conducting workshops to train other Chairs in her city. She also worked with students in underprivileged schools in India to encompass the art of diplomacy and debate, a project she continued in the UK as Leader of the UCL MUN volunteering program. Nudhara’s passion lies in taking what she learns at MUN and trying to apply it to real-world problems. She is a Founding Member and Trustee in ‘Faith to Unite’ charitable organisation - a grassroots charity that aims to tackle issues beyond faith or caste in India - and amongst other things, spent a summer at Yale researching the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Nudhara becomes the fifth Secretary-General of the High School conference, and incidentally the first female to take the role. Previous Secretaries-General include Tahmid Chowdhury (2016), George Mullens (2017), Alfie Jenkins (2018) and Aditya Ramani (2019).
The LIMUN Foundation is a charitable organisation that promotes cultural empathy, understanding of international affairs and awareness of the United Nations among young people. By equipping youth with mediation, analytical and leadership skills, while stressing cosmopolitan values and the interdependence of the modern world, we hope to foster future world leaders who will face global challenges with a spirit of international cooperation.
Currently, the LIMUN Foundation runs two programmes: our flagship annual conference in London, the largest university-level Model United Nations in Europe, and an annual secondary school conference, with a focus on opening access to MUN for those students who attend state/state-funded schools or are from under-represented communities. We also run additional support sessions for local schools.
