Gila bluth

Deputy Secretary General 

Gila Bluth is a second-year MUNer and a third-year student in Bar Ilan University learning towards a BA in English Linguistics and a teaching certificate as well.


She is currently the President of the BarMUN society, and aside from this, holds a position in the Student Council of the university. She feels that the council and Model UN have much in common- Being an environment where sharing ideas and interests, while actively listening to each other with regard to various topics, allows those in a collective body to learn from one another as well as achieve the utmost beneficial results as a whole.


She is excited to see this being put into practice in JLMUN 2021!

See you in JLMUN 2021!

Abhiraj Goswami

Undersecretary General of Academics

Hailing from the city of Kolkata, in India, Abhiraj Goswami is a recent graduate of Jadavpur University, Department of International Relations, having completed his bachelor’s degree in Political Science. His avid interest in the world of politics and diplomacy was greatly influenced by the existence of model UN conferences and he believes that if pursued honestly, MUNs can really help an individual re-think the prospects that it has to offer for people who wish to be involved in any kind of policy-oriented decision making. Starting out in 2015, he has garnered both national as well as international experience in the field. Abhiraj has gone beyond MUN conferences to pursue his academic interests by having published research papers as well as working with both policy think tanks as well as governmental divisions. He wishes to pursue his master’s degree in international security and looks forward to exploring and covering newer grounds as far as the subject is concerned.
