Polyxeni Botou

Rapporteur at NATO's North Atlantic Council

Who are you?

My name is Polyxeni Botou and I study Law in the Aristotle’s University of Thessaloniki since 2015. This is my first time as a Board Member and I hope it will be an unforgettable experience for every participant. I am involved with the European Law Students Association as a Director for Academic Activities for the academic year 2017/18. I speak English, Italian and French and I love books and dance. I am looking forward to meeting you all in Rhodes!

Why is RhodesMRC special for you?

RhodesMRC is a simulation, different than others, as it simulates Regional Organizations, giving the participants the opportunity to gain knowledge about them within a high academic level. Another important aspect is that the topics under discussion always concern actuality, making the experience even more interesting.

What do you expect to gain as a member of the Board of RhodesMRC 2018?

Since this is going to be my first experience as a Board Member in a university edition simulation, I expect to learn how to manage the sessions of the Committee in an effective way and at the same time make the participants have a great experience, which they would like to repeat. Of course, I expect to gain knowledge through the process of the Study Guide’s drafting but also from my collaboration with my Chairperson.
