(XII edition Cancelled due to COVID-19)
Corentin Larmoire Roussel
Corentin is a French student from Tours, in central France. When he is not studying the French law, Spanish and English languages and their legal systems, he travels and study everything he can about international law and geopolitical crises. He started on MUNs in 2014 and for 4 years has enjoyed the life of a delegate in several councils in Europe. After a dozen of MUNs as delegate, his career as president began in Berlin in August 2018.
He spent time in Cartagena as an "au-pair" for 6 months, and thus his terrible accent in Spanish was born and his passion for the Spanish language.
He likes to read, travel and listen to music, as every human. The weirdest thing about Corentin is that his dream is a "crossover" of Harry Potter and NATO, his two favorite themes.
He wants to live the experience of MUNUSAL with you for his first MUN in Spanish. Live the MUN addiction in Spain seems to him like another way to share, and to preside is to share. He waits for you all to expand the family of the MUNs.
See you in Salamanca!
Deputy Secretary General
Martina is a second-year dual master student at Sciences Po in Paris and Bocconi University in Milan, pursuing a degree in European Affairs and Policy Evaluation. Class 1997, Milanese by birth but citizen of the world by adoption: she has crossed borders several times thanks to volunteering experiences in Peru and Indonesia, school exchanges in India, the USA, the UK and Spain, and an internship at the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Dominican Republic.
Striving to recreate the international atmosphere encountered abroad and the desire to confront herself with other international relations, diplomacy-addicted individuals, she joined in 2015 MILMUN: her very own MUN Society, eventually serving as its President. Since then, she has eagerly participated as a delegate, Chair, Secretary General and Executive Committee member in numerous conferences at European level.
After a great edition in 2018, she can’t be more honoured and excited than coming back to Salamanca as Deputy Secretary General for MUNUSAL’s 2020 edition. She is looking forward to welcoming future participants to the family, seeing them debate as if there were no tomorrow (no for real, climate change is true), or dance the night away on one of Spain’s universally recognised heritages: reggaeton hits.
Ignace Van Den Steene
As a passionate 21-year-old law student studying at the KU Leuven in Belgium, Ignace first came in contact with MUN-ing at the beginning of 2018 when he joined the organization KU Leuven Model United Nations (KULMUN). From the very first training, through MUN- conferences in Bonn, Leuven, Madrid and Malta, till his election to the executive board of the organization as fundraiser, KULMUN became his family and MUN-ing his passion.
Having been a delegate in his first three conferences and a Chair in the last two, Ignace is very excited to have the honour to chair the Historical Security Council at MUNUSAL 2020. While studying law, he developed a great interest in international law, where he particularly took great pleasure in learning the ins and outs of the bodies of the UN. The Security Council is the most important and most influential international body and Ignace is looking forward to leading delegates in a constructive and exhilarating discussion to solve some of the most pressing issues the international community faces today. Join him and his co-chair at MUNUSAL 2020 and have the opportunity to partake in a real-world simulation of the Historical UN-Security Council where the ‘Korean War and ‘the Palestine Question’ will be on the agenda.
Having recently graduated from Trinity College Dublin, with her previous studies having been at the University of Bonn, Larissa has been attending MUN conferences across Europe for several years now. After participating at her home conference during her bachelor studies, she has occupied almost any position there is, from delegate to ExCom member, journalist to chair and Deputy Secretary General. It is her pleasure now to come to Salamanca for a second time, to chair the Historical Security Council.
MUNs perfectly combine her interest in international relations with her passion for traveling and discovering new places she knows little about. Therefore, she is not quite ready to let go of the MUN world and is looking forward to return to Spain and meet old and new friends at MUNUSAL 2020.

Tomas Sielaff Álvarez
Tomas estudia Historia en la Universidad Humboldt de Berlín y ha participado en diversos MUN en los últimos 9 años. Nacido y criado en Brasil, lo que lo convierte en un entusiasta estereotipado del fútbol, es un fan acérrimo de los MUN y un charlatán confeso. Está muy emocionado porque va a participar en un comité no-anglófono por primera vez en MUNUSAL 2020, ¡está deseando veros a todos en Salamanca el próximo mes de abril!
Marius is a second year master student in International Security, at Sciences Po in Paris. He first encountered MUN at the University of Essex, during his undergraduate studies, some four years ago. Since then, he has amassed a surprisingly moderate number of conferences for someone so interested.
Outside of throwing money at conferences, he enjoys videogames, books, vinyl, and bow ties. If you have any questions, please reach out, so that he can spend less time online shopping for these items, which take up considerable space in his less-than-spacious Parisian flat.
Glynn studies Law and Business at the KU Leuven in Belgium. Academically, she is most interested in intellectual property law, regimes and (of course) international law. Her MUN experience encompasses appearances as delegate in several MUNs, including KULMUN, the MUN association and conference which he has been part of since she started studying. She organised KULMUN’s 2019 conference and is still an active board member of the association today. In her spare time, she enjoys watching true crime documentaries, traveling to unusual places and attending concerts.
She looks forward to visiting the picturesque city of Salamanca and to chairing MUNUSAL’s Disarmament and International Security Committee.
Rosario Cives Losada
Editor in Chief
Rosario was born in Argentina, but she moved to Spain when she was only 3. She spent her teenage years in a small town in the region of Extremadura and she left as soon as she could to study Translation and Interpreting in her beloved Salamanca. Little did she know she was going to move again on her second year. This time she packed her bags to have an intense but wonderful Erasmus experience in the land of baguettes and croissants. Even though she still misses Lyon, she never stopped loving Salamanca and she’s ready to make everyone feel the same way.
Other than complaining about how little she sleeps and procrastinating, she likes meeting new people who have stories to tell, discovering new music and readying in any format. Although she could only participate in 2018’s conference as a journalist, she’s really looking forward to being Editor-In-Chief this year. She’ll make sure you have something to talk about during coffee breaks!

More than all of that, he is very busy with KULMUN, going to conferences and preparing for MUNUSAL 2020 to help form an amazing media team!
