Panagiotis Karytsiotis

Honorable participants,

My name is Panagiotis Karytsiotis and I am 21 years old. I was born in Athens, but raised in Heraklion, Crete. Currently I am an undergraduate student at the University of Macedonia, in the department of International and European Studies. My main areas of interest are security and strategy; consequently, being a Backroom Staff member of the Crisis Committee for this year’s FREDMUN will be a really intriguing challenge.

Despite my young age and given the fact that I am passionate with my field of studies, I have managed to implement every single thing I have learned in lecture halls to various works I have done or during several simulations.

My MUN obsession – yes it is absolutely an obsession – began back in 2015, when I was in the first year of my studies. To make a long story short, I was drinking my Frappé coffee in Thessaloniki, when a friend told me, “Hey, wanna come to Bismun? We are gonna have fun”. Afterwards, I realized that this was one of the best decisions so far.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me welcome each and every one of you! Take a stand, express your thesis, challenge yourselves!

See you in November!

Kind Regards,

Panagiotis Karytsiotis
