Maab ElSheikh

Maab is a Sudanese Junior studying at the American University in Dubai. She is an Electrical Engineering student who likes to speak her mind and look at life from different perspectives. If not drowned by engineering work, she usually spends her time competing in a basketball tournament, drawing a realistic portrait, or having a random deep conversation with someone. Maab’s MUN story started with volunteering in AUDMUN 4.0, and it continued till she became Chief of Staff of AUDMUN 5.0. Now she wants to experience this conference that is so close to her heart from a different point of view! As a chair, she will make sure the delegates leave the conference with great memories, a friend for life, and an experience that will let them flourish to the great debaters they are bound to be. She hopes to create a fun, challenging, and competitive atmosphere in the committee, and she cannot wait to see what this conference has in store for everyone!
