Michelle Dolder
International Relations and Diplomacy have always been my passion. They are essential in dealing with conflict and establishing progress peacefully in the polarised world we have today. Pandemics like Covid and technological advances make it essential for communication to happen to avoid misunderstandings. I am a fun-loving, dedicated, sporty, and driven individual who would love to contribute to this vibrant society. My committee role in the RLBS has prepared me for future roles and I have seen how rewarding it is intellectually and socially to become involved in a society. My priorities are both exciting existing members with unique and current events as well as reaching out to new individuals who have no previous knowledge of international relations. I encourage diversity and want to establish a welcoming climate for new members, and create inspiration for future careers. I would organise panels about current affairs as well as events to learn about starting careers in this field and establishing contact with companies and NGOs. Having not had the opportunity in 2020, it is important to network with each other and companies to find out about career and internship opportunities. I am excited to create exciting new event projects in collaboration with the team, learning both about ourselves and international affairs.

Having lived in several countries, I have grown to accept that everyone has a place on this planet. In today’s society where it is all too common to focus on differences instead of similarities, I aim to break tradition and work towards fostering harmony between people through diplomacy. My interest in diplomacy has cultivated a passion within me for international relations on the basis of tearing down walls and building bridges of collaboration and trust.

My fascination wi foreign policy inspired me to take part in several MUN societies. I established one in my school to share this opportunity with my peers and we qualified to attend the 2020 LSE MUN conference. This experience gave me a platform to share my previous insight of major international players who try more than ever to advance their goals through active dialogues rather than wars of words. It also enabled me to establish lasting connections with other participants and work in teams as a means of reaching collective aims. I believe that there is strength in numbers and will do my part to work with my fellow peers to ensure the collective success of every event.

Having been to many of the society’s events, I want to promote the events in a way that would benefit more people like I did from such unique opportunities. I will also move some of the talks to social media platforms like Instagram and use its IGTV feature as I believe it creates a more welcoming and accessible environment for Q&A sessions.
