The team behind the conference
Tarun Vallabhaneni is an 11th grader in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Oakridge International School, pursuing Biology, Chemistry and Economics at a higher level.
He strongly believes that Model UN conferences have the power to elevate ideas to greater heights. Since starting his MUN journey in 2013, Tarun has attended MUNs at a national level, as a delegate, chairperson and secretariat member.
An aspiring doctor and entrepreneur, it’s almost impossible to predict what Tarun’s doing at a particular time, but engaging in discussions about Star Wars is a good place to start.
He is delighted to be serving as the Secretary-General for OakMUN 2018 and promises to make it an unparalleled conference and debate platform for the delegates!
Navika Reddy is an 11th grader currently pursuing psychology, biology and chemistry at a higher level as a part of the Diploma Programme.
She is one of the most joyous, free-spirited and energy packed people you will ever come across. She enjoys listening to all genres of music, singing loudly, and loves a good laugh. In her free time you would find her hanging out with her family and friends or weeping over re-runs of One Tree Hill. Navika is spontaneous and likes to show levels of creativity in all her work. She loves to rack her brains about a good problem and sincerely performs best under pressure.
As Chargé d’Affaires of OakMUN 2018, she aims to put together a conference that will truly be one of the most exciting, interactive and exhilarating experiences for all delegates.
Pranith is a junior currently pursuing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program at Oakridge International School. While he has attended his fair share of Model UN conferences as both a delegate, and an Executive Board member, OakMUN 2018 will be the first in which he essays the role of Charge D’affaires.
Aside from Model UN, Pranith plays competitive basketball and vehemently supports the football club Bayern Munich (they’re the best club in the world, trust him- he’s definitely unbiased).
As Charge D’affaires for OakMUN 2018, he not only promises that it will be an exceptional experience, but also hopes that the conference will make you as passionate about Model United Nations as he is!
