NESBRU chair -  Carina wilthil

Hi! My name is Carina Wilthil and I will be chair along with Jasmine G in the UNHRC. This will be my first time chairing a committee, and I am looking forward to chairing all of you! I have been an active delegate in several MUN conferences and at Nesbru VGS, and hope to make this conference as great for you as my past ones have been. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you and to some excellent debates

SVGS chair - Jasmine griñen

Hello! My name is Jasmine Griñen. Experiencing SANMUN has been one of the most exciting part of my school, since it does not only give me new experiences every time I attend the conference, but I also get to meet intelligent & devoted people who bring fruitful & world-changing debates.
I’ve been to MUN since 2016 and has been a delegate ever since. This year, I will be the chair for the UNHRC and I’ll be serving the issue on human trafficking.
Looking forward to meet and have an awesome time with everyone
