Bianca Chiriță President of the ICJ

Having started her MUN career quite late, Bianca is beyond thrilled to chair her beloved ICJ committee. She had a bittersweet start in the world of MUNs, however, after participating in her first ICJ, she fell in love with anything related to international law, which she wishes to study at university. 
Apart from her interest in the legal world, Bianca is also passionate about dancing, which she used to perform at a competitive level, and traveling.
This being said, she is eager to meet all of you and share the legal knowledge that she cherishes so much. 

“In each and every question there is challenge.” 

Lucian Cismaru President of the ICJ

Lucian will be one of the Presidents of the ICJ committee for this edition of IașiMUN. He is a junior at “Grigore Moisil” National High School and he really enjoys psychology and history. This committee is the dearest to his heart since he loves legal debates and wants to one day become a judge as well. 

Therefore, he likes to fashion himself as an “ICJ enthusiast”, and he hopes that he will pass on to you, future delegates, at least a sense of why he loves this committee so much. For him, justice represents the most important part of a democracy, acting as a checkpoint in regards to decisions since “right is right and wrong is wrong no matter how many are in favor of them”, so it’s the job of justice to ensure a balance. See you in November!

 “In a Court of law, nothing is unjust, unless proven so by a law.”

Alexandra Mutuzac President of the ICJ

As one of the most present people in the ICJ committees over the last 2 years, Alexandra cannot wait to attend IașiMUN this fall. 
Although her hair colour might change quite often, Alexandra’s love of MUNs never will. The 3 years she has spent at “Mihai Eminescu” College in Botoșani have been dedicated to debating. The most important thing she’s learned is that she belongs to the fields of Law and International Relations. The ICJ has played a key role in this realization, that being why she is so happy to finally chair it.

Ruxandra Popescu Chairperson of the WHO

Ruxi is a junior at “Gheorghe Șincai” National College in Bucharest. She’s been doing MUNs for about two years, and what began as a hesitant decision to try something new has turned into one of her greatest passions. She is overjoyed to welcome all of the delegates to the WHO committee, which is very close to her heart. She can’t wait to meet all of you and create beautiful memories!

“Speak only if it improves upon the silence.” – Gandhi

Mircea Arămescu Secretary-General, Chairperson of the WHO Committee

The World Health Organization was the place where Mircea’s passion for MUNs was born three years ago.
For ending his MUN career on a high note, he chose to return for the third and final time to his most beloved committee, the one where he was a first-time delegate and also a first-time chairperson in.
Although MUN lore traditionally dictates that the WHO Committee is an easy one to tackle, Mircea can wholeheartedly promise you that together with his colleagues, Miruna and Ruxandra he will make sure to give you a hard time in the best way possible.

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Miruna Viziteu Chairperson of the WHO Committee

Miruna’s career as a MUNer and debater has just ended with her high-school years, since now she is a first-year student at FSEGA. She has participated in MUNs for the last four years, mostly as a delegate and has always been amazed by the fact that simple pupils can research and speak so eloquently about such diverse topics.
Even though this is her first time chairing a WHO committee, she is extremely excited to be doing so with such amazing people by her side! She will welcome all of you with open arms so she can share her excitement. 

“You’ve got choices-be strong enough to make them.” 

Ioana Albu Chairperson of the UN Security Council

Ioana is a 17-year-old student at “Emil Racoviță” National College in Iași. She was a delegate at IașiMUN for the first time in 2020, and since then, MUNs have become one of her greatest passions, among other things such as writing and drama. She is thrilled to welcome you to one of her favorite committees, the UNSC! 
Ever since her first participation, she has admired the stamina and the spontaneity of this committee, and now she is more than delighted to be one of the chairpersons, alongside Ana and Francesca. Expect the unexpected, as an experience full of surprises, spiciness, and political tension is guaranteed. In other words, fasten your seatbelts, as this ride is going to be an unforgettable one! 

“May the odds ever be in your favour.”

Francesca Rămășcanu Chairperson of the UN Security Council

Ambitious, thoughtful, and diligent, Francesca always puts all her heart into the projects she takes part in and wants to do her job as perfectly as she can. She had an unforgettable MUN journey during high school, but she still wants to contribute to this edition of IasiMUN which she believes will be her favorite.

“Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.”

Ana Aronescu Deputy President of the General Assembly, Chairperson of the UN Security Council

This is Ana, but she is known as Cat. She is 20 years old, and she just finished her senior year of high school. She is a freshman at the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Faculty of Philosophy in Bucharest, but more importantly, she’s ecstatic to also be one of the Chairpersons of IasiMUN 2022 alongside loana and Francesca.
Bubbly and passionate, she has always been a fan of public speaking, with sugar, spice, and everything nice. She will try to drag everyone she can to join her hobbies, interests, and more, and MUN’s, just so happen to be up high on that list, alongside, literature, musical theatre, DnD, and biology. A rocker with a deep love for pop culture, she will probably try to gracefully insert jokes whenever possible, to lighten the mood, like a true Lawful Evil.

“And have you never known the pleasure and triumph of a lucky guess? – I pity you. – I thought you cleverer – for depend upon it, a lucky guess is never merely luck.” – Jane Austin (Emma)

Bogdan Raicu Chairperson of the Crisis Committee

A hyperactive human but also the most chill person in any room – an oxymoron that defines this chairperson alongside the phrase “why not”. This is Bogdan, a guy who never backs down from anything and that person who always proves others’ expectations wrong. 
Among his interests we count piloting, biking, playing the guitar, and most recently debating. Remembering the “why not” phrase, that’s how he actually got into MUNs, a choice that was to completely alter the course of his life. Now, he is a die-hard MUNer and a debater that shoots for the highest goals (this time being to offer the crisis committee the best possible experience). So, what are you waiting for? See you at IasiMUN and hopefully, at Crisis.

“Live to the point of tears.” – Albert Camus

Karina Zybaczynski Deputy Secretary-General, Chairperson of the Crisis Committee

Karina is a senior at the “Gheorghe Șincai” National College in Bucharest, bringing to the Crisis table her extensive experience in this complex committee. Passionate about the inner workings of diplomacy and history, Karina couldn’t be happier to share her MUN knowledge during every session of the conference. 
A ray of sunshine, as one of her co-chairs, would describe her, she couldn’t be more ecstatic to share this experience alongside her friends and you, future delegates! She can’t wait to meet you all soon!

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” – Gandalf

Silviu Ciorap Chairperson of the Crisis Committee

A first-year computer engineering student in Iași, Silviu has extensive knowledge of Crisis committees ever since his first conference, IașiMUN’19, back in November of 2019. Eager about fast-paced committees and keen on giving the new generations of MUNers a truly authentic Crisis experience, he is more than ecstatic to be chairing the Crisis committee of this edition of IașiMUN.
Alongside Bogdan and Karina, he is confident he can share his insights and passion for generations to come. Muster up your courage and brace yourself for a committee that will leave you wanting more. See you in the Crisis committee!

Daria Grădinaru Chairperson of the Legal Committee

After 3 years of attending MUNs and hitting every committee there is, Daria is extraordinarily excited to be a part of the IasiMUN team. 
The highschool senior from Botosani does not only attend conferences, but she has found a love of sharing her WS Debate and MUN knowledge. Seeing the eagerness of young people and being there to watch their evolution brings her a lot of joy. 
Daria wishes to further study architecture and that calls for her MUN career to approach its end. Still, she hopes to see many eager people bloom at the conference this fall and wishes them all good luck. 

“What is done in love is done well.” – Vincent Van Gogh

Ștefan Crețu President of the General Assembly, Chairperson of the Legal Committee

MUNs have been Ștefan’s high school passion, redefining the way he thinks and building his character. Now, nearly 4 years later, he is trying his best to share the passion that runs through his body with any other newcomer to this world. Although a bit overworked, Ștefan loves to make sure that the experience received by all the delegates of his committees is the best one possible, thus, you can expect great things from the Legal Committee of our conference. When asked what he is excited about the most regarding IașiMUN, Ștefan answered “Because I can work with all my closest friends”, truly showing that MUNs are more than just some events, they are a way of achieving multilateral development.

“Sic mundus creatus est.”

Karina Balaban Chairperson of the Legal Committee

Karina would describe herself as a raging workaholic, even though she is rewatching Brooklyn 99 for the twelfth time. This will be the last MUN she’ll attend during her high school years, so she’s making sure that she will create the most exceptional experience for the delegates joining the Legal committee. IașiMUN will complete a cycle for her, as this committee of the conference was where it all began. She’s passionate about international law and relations, philosophy, volunteering, and getting to know her community. She wants to make her voice heard in society and always strives for change and hopes to empower prospective delegates to do the same. She hopes to give back to the delegates everything she has acquired over the course of her MUN career. 

“You are the only one who gets to decide what you will be remembered for.”

David Dimonu Chairperson of the Administrative and Budgetary Committee

An open-minded individual who is passionate about history, economics, philosophy, and cooking, David Dimonu will be one of the chairpersons of the Administrative & Budgetary Committee. He is always interested in new experiences, and that is why he has taken part in so many MUN conferences. He truly hopes that alongside his fellow chairpersons and future delegates he will be able to make a memorable experience of this wonderful MUN conference.

“But who prays for Satan? Who in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most, our one fellow and brother who most needed a friend yet had not a single one […].” – Mark Twain

Diana Cordun Chairperson of the Administrative and Budgetary Committee

Diana is an 18-year-old senior at National College Iași. Her MUN journey started last year at IasiMUN’s 12th edition, and her excitement to meet both old and new people from the debate community is beyond words. 
When it comes to her free time, reading and finding new music are her go-to activities, yet she can often be found scrolling through news, articles, or memes, especially with cats! (if she doesn’t answer her phone she’s probably running to catch a train)
She wishes each and every one of the participants the best of luck and can’t wait to meet her delegates!

“It’s all a question of imagination. Our responsibility begins with the power to imagine.” – Haruki Murakami

Alexandru Drăghia Chairperson of the Administrative and Budgetary Committee

Alex is 18 and a senior at “Mihai Viteazul” High School in Caracal. With a deep passion for international law and legal research, diplomacy, and its intricate need for compromise, he is an advocacy enthusiast, with experience in climate action, students and children’s rights, and youth empowerment, hoping to pursue a career in this field. He wishes you the best and most fruitful MUN session, and wants you to know that the most important aspect of a conference is learning!

“When things go wrong, don’t go with them.”

Petra Rusu Chairperson of the SPECPOL Committee

Petra, soon to be a senior studying social sciences and French, is mostly wandering around music and films.
Having taken a liking to MUNs as a freshman, they wondered if chairing has a kick, and it does.
Expect a chair who’s not in favour of shouting in the committee but will be open to questions and discussions in order to settle most questions.
They’re waiting eagerly to meet you all so be sure to sign up! 

“Cool” – Tyler Durden, Fight Club 

Ilinca Pădurariu Chairperson of the SPECPOL Committee

After spending her first high school years juggling debating and reading about international relations, Ilinca found a way to combine these two passions: joining MUN conferences. 
Although this is her 13th MUN, she feels lucky to be a chair for the first time, alongside Petra and Mara. She cannot wait to meet the delegates of the SPECPOL committee and ensure that they will have an amazing time at IașiMUN!

“I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives.”

Mara Vîntu Chairperson of the SPECPOL Committee

Mara is a junior from Iași and she is more than excited to chair this year’s SPECPOL committee alongside Petra and Ilinca! Off-formal sesh you could probably find her rambling about anything from film cameras to the discography of Pink Floyd, so feel free to strike up a conversation if you feel like it. 
Coming back to the first MUN she ever attended, she is hoping that this committee will bring forward the most creative and productive ideas and debates. That being said, she is really excited to be a part of this year’s conference! 

“Come on you target for faraway laughter
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, shine”

Alia Tănăsoiu Chairperson of the SOCHUM Committee

Alia is a rising junior at “Saint Sava” National College and will be one of the chairpersons of the SOCHUM committee. She considers herself quite easygoing and passionate about most of her daily activities, since her interests include pretty much everything from literature and public speaking to neuroscience and advocating for gender equality.
As a chairperson, her priority is to pass on confidence to her delegates and to create a safe space, as well as a competitive one, in order for them to evolve and to further enjoy MUN conferences. She is looking forward to seeing you all at the XIV edition of IașiMUN this November!

“Next stop, the Twilight Zone!”

Gabriela Grigoraș Chairperson of the SOCHUM Committee

Having attended IașiMUN 2019 as a first-timer, this is the conference that has had the most long-lasting impact on Gabriela. At first, she was here only to get better at public speaking, but after having met the people in the committee, there’s no way she could have left, even though she’s in the 12th grade. 
Energetic and sociable, she’s always ready to interact with everyone around her and to have a great time. She’s certain that the SOCHUM committee will have the most amazing atmosphere and it’s going to offer you a warm welcome, even as a first-timer. 

“Nothing lasts forever and nothing stays the same.”

Mara Andronache Chairperson of the SOCHUM Committee

Mara is a soon-to-be junior at “Tudor Vianu” National College of Informatics in Bucharest. She has a tremendous passion for anything that includes debating, as she loves the rush of adrenaline it gives her. Taking into account that she holds herself responsible to assure the best experience for each and every delegate, Mara is going to work to a great extent in order to promise the entirety of the SOCHUM committee qualitative academic materials, fruitful debates, and 4 days of endless fun. She cannot wait to meet everyone in November, at IașiMUN 2022!

“We have to transcend our differences in order to transform our future.” 

Eduard Șovan Chairperson of the ECOFIN Committee

Șovan is a senior at “Mihai Eminescu” National College Botoșani and he is so excited to be a chairperson at IașiMUN 2022 since this conference takes place during his birthday. If the name did not already ring a bell, be prepared for a memorable conference, given the fact that his High School experience so far is full of debate. 

From World Schools to MUNs, he never misses an opportunity to argue about anything and he surely hopes to pass this on to all the delegates. For him, the perfect committee should be a memory sprinkled with his interests: one teaspoon of philosophy, a pinch of history, two cups of good humour, and fun to taste.

“The king is dead, long live the king!”

Victor Roșca Chairperson of the ECOFIN Committee

Victor has been absent from the debate community during the Covid pandemic, and he had serious reasons for doing so. He spent most of his time trying to earn a living from flipping NFTs, which worked well until the cryptocurrency market crashed earlier this year. 
After the severe market crash this spring, Victor has not yet managed to recover completely. He is now spending most of his time playing Catan and Europa Universalis, trying to forget what happened. 
Now, while waiting for the market opportunities to become profitable again, Victor has finally decided to participate at this year’s edition as a chair, even though 2 years ago he thought that would have been his last MUN.

“God has a special providence for fools, drunkards, and the United States of America.” – Otto von Bismark

Ana Bogdănescu Chairperson of the DISEC Committee

Among one of her last highschool MUN experiences, Ana is more than excited to return as a chairperson at IașiMUN, this time in the DISEC Committee, alongside her dear colleagues, Ioana and Teo.
Since attending her first MUN conference 2 years ago, she has grown to be passionate about politics and international relations, both of which she hopes to pursue in the future. She wishes you all to have an unforgettable experience and, most importantly:

 “Speak up and seize the moment!”

Teodor Ciorap Chairperson of the DISEC Committee

Passionate, keen, and a recent addition to the chairperson landscape of the MUN scene, Teodor is a sophomore from Iași that has fallen in love with MUNs a year ago and has never looked back since then. He is extremely excited about this conference, as it will be his first time chairing alongside two of his good friends, Ioana and Ana. 
His hobbies include debating, meeting new people, and cracking the occasional joke. He cannot wait to meet you all and see you debate as a part of the DISEC committee, and he invites you to learn, make friends, and, most importantly, to have fun.

“It’s gonna be legen — wait for it … and I hope you’re not lactose-intolerant ‘cause the second half of that word is — dairy!”

Ioana Tapalagă Chairperson of the DISEC Committee

A first-year student at UMF Cluj Napoca with an irrationally big love for NATO (her cat, not the organization), Ioana has been debating in any shape or form for four years now. MUNs hold a special place in her heart, thanks to both the friends she made in this journey and the ways in which the conferences changed her as an individual. The uninformed, disorganized, and confused freshman became an individual somewhat more aware of her surroundings, with a clearer view of her goals.
The DISEC Committee has been her soft spot for a while now and she is thrilled to be able to share a piece of her knowledge with the confused freshmen or disorganized juniors that will accept the challenges of this committee at IașiMUN.
