EMA DŽEJNA SMOLO, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Ema Džejna (or MJ, for short) is a student of International Relations and Diplomacy at the Faculty of Political Sciences in Sarajevo with experience in project assistance, public relations and academic research. Sarajevo MUN was the first conference she attended, after which she quickly achieved recognition in other MUNs, as an awarded delegate and chairperson. Ema is a self-proclaimed bookworm with a refined taste for history and politics related humor, and she is more than happy to help gather ambitious, young professionals in such a soulful city like Sarajevo.
BELMIN ZUKAN, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Belmin Zukan is currently an MA candidate at the Faculty of Law Sarajevo. He works as a legal trainee for Miljkovic & Partners, and has throughout his studies pursued interests for different topics such as history, international and domestic politics and constitutional law. During his undergrad studies he served as Secretary General and Vice-president of ELSA Sarajevo, where he gained experience in conference management and organization. Belmin's interests range far and wide, from good old fashion reading to exploring traditional dances of B&H and the Balkans region. His position at Sarajevo MUN this year coincides perfectly with his goal of making our conference a memorable and fulfilling experience for all participants. And for all history related fun facts - he's your go to person!
AMINA IBIŠEVIĆ, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Amina Ibišević is a fellow undergraduate at Sarajevo School of Science and Technology, in the field of Political Science and International Relations. MUNs are for her an opportunity for exploring different possibilities and pushing one's own limits. Being the avid reader that she is, with a spark for creative and academic writing, she was the most fitting choice for our position of Communications Director. To this day, Harry Potter remains one of her favorite series ever read (and P.S. she is sorted in Slytherin).
LANA KULINA, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Director of Public Relations
Lana Kulina, born and raised in Sarajevo, studies linguistics in The First Gymnasium in Sarajevo. For several years now, she has been working in non-governmental organisations, both local and regional. Lana has experience in public relations, project management, event planning and moderation. Sarajevo MUN was one of many MUN conferences she attended last year, but still remains her favorite. Her interests are found in the media, youth work, politics and anything Harry Potter related. Lana describes herself as an ambitious, communicative and responsible person. She enjoys long conversations about controversial topics and is always prepared to help. Unlike many of her peers, she is a workaholic. She can not imagine spending her days without at least one report to write or meeting to attend.
HARIS BERILO, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Haris Berilo is a student of Computer Sciences at the International University of Sarajevo. Although a computer engineer and programmer ("nerd" and denizen of the Internet foremost), politics and debates have been a topic close to his heart for a long while. Proficient in English, he has met a lot of people who have helped him broaden his horizons and expand his interests to areas regarding natural, social sciences as well as, as of this year, logistics.
