Security Council Chairs


Luana Pallaro is an International Affairs student at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy. She is Brazilian and that can clearly be noticed if you start talking about soccer with her. Her experience with MUN started in Middle School as an accident, as the school administration placed her in the wrong elective class. However, since then she has been committed to the extracurricular throughout the years. Besides MUN and soccer, Luana loves to meet new people and learn about different cultures and traditions, which is one of the perks of a MUN Conference. She is excited to meet all the amazing delegates coming from around the world and for an engaging conference.


Penelope Magnani was born in Rome, Italy, but due to her father’s job, she moved around Europe before settling down in Switzerland. Growing up she was quite a shy kid and took up MUN in the hopes to build some self-confidence and learn more about current affairs. Little did she know she would love it so much and continue to pursue it at University. She currently studies International Relations at the University of Essex in the UK. There she is the MUN Society’s President-elect. Outside of MUN, she enjoys writing and doing sports.

Viraj Mehrotra is a sophomore at the University of Groningen studying International and European Law. He is a debater and a student engagement intern at Chatham House, London. When not travelling with MUN (and when he is not submerged in Law books due to never ending exams!), he enjoys spending time at political, debating and social service organisations in his town. His interest in security issues arose during his first MUN experience as a delegate and continued during his experiences in MUN behind both sides of the table. Apart from debating and MUNs, he enjoys making random playlists on Spotify, quizzing and having small talks with coffee, criticising everything wrong in this world (he is quite opinionated!). He is excited about chairing Security Council at SGMMUN’19 and can’t wait to see how delegates face the challenges of continuous crisis!
