In 2017, she co-founded MEP Slovakia and is more than eager to come back and share the experience with you.

Linda’s first conference (MEPSK17) challenged and inspired her to take her newly obtained knowledge and experience to the outside world.

Committee on International Trade

JAKUB KUČERÁK

SAMUEL MALINA

Debating and model conferences have been Jakub’s thing ever since he joined high school. Although he attended quite a few similar events, MEPSK stands out as one of the most enjoyable, and not just because he was nominated for the international round. He believes that the idea of MEP combines European affairs with an unusual debating and social experience and thus perfectly fits his interests.

Samuel is a 19-year old LEAF Academy student with a burning passion for history. Attending MEPs has widened his European horizons and helped him to delve deeper into the complexity of interstate relationships in a supranational organization. He firmly believes in the mission of MEP, and he is looking forward to days of enriching discourse in the committee. Besides that, he loves cute animals.

Zina has been actively participating in model sessions for almost three years. In November, she headed the Slovak delegation for the international MEP in Toledo. This is her first time presiding and she is excited for the event, hoping that this MEP will be fun and educational for everyone.
