Maya is a Syrian student who was born and raised in Dubai. She is a Junior majoring in Business Marketing. She aspires to become a Corporate Lawyer in the future. In her free time, she enjoys socializing, reading, and baking. One of her favorite things to do is debate, which helped initiate her MUN journey. Her first MUN experience began in early 2019. Maya moved from being a delegate to becoming a chair, to hosting two MUN conferences as Secretary-General in High School, within a few conferences. She joined the AUDMUN team in her first year of university to spread the knowledge she has learned during her experiences to other delegates and interested members. She believes that MUN is not only a place to learn about modern-day global issues and politics, but it is also a remarkable platform to improve your public speaking skills, grow your network, and make lifelong friends. Maya hopes to make AUDMUN a once-in-a-lifetime experience for others, just as it is for her.
