Ali is a proud Iraqi based in Dubai, currently majoring in Film & Politics at AUD. He has come a long way to contribute to the MUN community by being part of the AUDMUN executive board. With a strong passion and understanding for the functions of global issues and socio-political matters, he hopes that it would translate seamlessly into the conference. His MUN experience started back in 2017 when he decided to partake in his school’s MUN club. This quickly turned into a passion in which he attended every major conference in the UAE since then. He was a key leader amongst his school’s MUN club peers in which he happily took to guiding them throughout their delegation experiences. And when he is not meddling with university work, he is most likely to slave away to expand his aspiring career as a Film Producer and a part time Academic. Ali genuinely hopes him and his team in the Department of Committees and Chairs will bring productive and fruitful debates and will hopefully leave everyone feeling bittersweet by the end of the conference.
