Celia López Escribano
Born and raised in Spain, Celia López Escribano moved to The Netherlands after completing her high school education in a British school and concluding her professional music degree specialising in piano. She is now a third year Chemical Engineering Bachelor Honours Student at the University of Groningen, her interest being focused on energy and the environment. Celia also takes pride in that she is this year’s president of the HCSA Board, the Association within the Honours College of the University of Groningen.
Besides her studies and responsibilities, she enjoys time in nature, experiencing different cultures, practicing handstands, visiting museums and playing piano when she has the time! Celia loves to share her enthusiasm and opinion openly and is very much looking forward to TEIMUN 2020, to meeting you all, and to listening to the different arguments and solutions that will be presented in the intense, yet fruitful, debate!
Thiya Syafika is a third-year Psychology student at the University of Groningen. Although her major does not have much to do with international relations, she has a high interest and knowledge of the area.
She has been doing Model United Nations since 2015 and participated as a chair in the 2018 GrunnMUN conference. After wreaking havoc at last year’s TEIMUN 2019 conference as a general crisis, she is excited to come back to TEIMUN 2020 as one of the chairs of UN Women.
In her free time, she loves to travel, getting to know new people, and walking around aimlessly. Don’t be afraid to approach her for a free (unlicensed) psychologist session as she understands how stressful these MUN conferences can be!
