Conference Manager: Mathieu Alderson
It was in his first year as a Political Sciences student at the KU Leuven that Mathieu discovered the KULMUN association and the wonderful world of MUNing. Flash-forward three years and this (unhealthy) relationship is still standing strong. Very fond of the activities and people surrounding KULMUN, it convinced him to (re-)join the Executive Board for a sure-to-be exhilarating Season 4.
Concerning his origin story Mathieu grew up in and around the multicultural context of Brussels, hence probably his interest in international relations. While his dad taught him to enjoy classic TV series and movies, his mom made sure to also develop more marketable skills. Nowadays he still tries to combine both targets with his university studies in Leuven. These have not only enabled him to enjoy the best student city in the world (fact) but also brought him to the equally amazing city of Lund, Sweden during his Erasmus semester, where he had the luxury to meet uncountable, fantastiska, (inter)national people.
As the 2018 KULMUN Conference Manager Mathieu aims to retain the successful elements of the formula, while adding some new spice to it. Hereby delegates and secretariat should be able to enjoy both high-quality debates and mind-blowing socials. And if that is not sufficient you can always approach him to talk about trance music, football or life in general.
