Meet the Team
Introducing the team behind KentMUN 2020, the Secretariat
KentMUN's 2020 Secretary-General is Marinette Gaillon, a French student studying Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent. She has been involved in MUN for over three years, and is very excited at the opportunity of helping shape this conference, especially in the wonderful city that is Canterbury! She hopes to organize a conference where everyone feels welcomed no matter their experience and can’t wait to meet the brilliant delegates that will make this year’s KentMUN a great one!
Lisa is a French third-year student from Sciences Po Lille. She currently studies for a bi-diplôme in Politics and International Relations in partnership with the University of Kent.
She has taken part in several conferences in France and abroad, notably Harvard World Model United Nations. Lisa has some chairing experience. She is Director of Finance for Kent Model United Nations society in the University. Lisa was already a member of KentMUN Secretariat last year, and she is now ready to make of this conference a success as the new Deputy Secretary General.
Outside of university, Lisa has spent most of her weekends on basketball fields for regional competitions. On the field or at MUN, Lisa believes – just as Baron Coubertin – that the important thing is taking part. With this in mind, she hopes all delegates and chairs will enjoy KentMUN 2020.
USG for Communication
Erasmus student coming from France, Erwan will give his all to fullfill his duties as Under Secretary for Communication. He will do his best to inform you about everything related to KentMUN 2020, and most importantly, will deliver it in the most aesthetic way! His multiple experiences in communication will be put to good use throughout the year, and you will hopefully get to know everything there is to the conference through his social media posts!

Valentine Le Lourec
Under Secretary-General for Logistics
This year’s Under-Secretary-General of Logistics is Valentine Le Lourec, a French second-year student. She studies Politics in Sciences Po and the University of Kent.
When it comes to MUN, Valentine has already had experience being a delegate in Harvard World MUN 2019 in Madrid. It will be a new challenge for her to be part of KentMUN's Secretariat.
Outside of university, she is very interested in art, especially music and dance (she has been practicing both for 10 years). She also feels deeply concerned with societal issues, and loves to be challenged with delegates holding different viewpoints from her. She believes that MUN is a challenging field , both for the Secretariat and the delegates, but that it should always be in good spirits : after all there is nothing better than working together to attain a goal together.
She hopes everyone will come back from KentMUN happy to have participated and to be part of the MUN family.
