Miri Muntean

Miri Muntean is one of DKWien’s fresh talents who quickly developed a strong taste for strong argumentation. Thankfully, she has never since managed to devote less time to debating and the debating society. She can truly be confident in her debating skills, as she quickly achieved an excellent position as a speaker at Vienna Freshers’ 2013 just after she had joined the society, and next, together with Damita, reached the Novice Final in the top breaking team at Leiden Open 2014. Paris, Budapest, Cluj-Napoca and Zagreb complete the list of cities which Miri visited for debating in just her first year of university debating. Is it obvious that she has already dashed around Europe quite a lot?

It’s very fitting that Miri speaks German, Romanian, Spanish, English and French. When she is not debating , Miri studies Business Administration at the Vienna University of Economics and Transcultural Communication at the University of Vienna. Brace yourself if you are debating Miri in a debate about identity and social constructs, the hot stuff just off her lectures. For a more light-hearted topic, she would challenge you to a debate about whether a well-fed cat in a western liberal democracy should refuse to hunt for mice, even if it enjoys the game of cat-and-mouse.

Miri says that Vienna is perfectly suited to being the European debate capital next summer. By “Vienna”, she means both the city and the debating society, where she works in the Euros registration team. She is confident Vienna EUDC will be incredibly awesome, because she sees herself as part of a team that is itself awesome and capable of delivering an incredibly awesome EUDC experience. How will that much awesomeness be possible? In a tournament where it does not matter whether you go home as a champion, as a breaking speaker or judge, or with other memories, because the memories will be good for each and every one in their own way. Whether it is about cool socials, thrilling motions, a smooth tournament or enjoying the city, Vienna EUDC aspires to cater for every one of those needs, and the dedication to this goal motivates Miri. And she is sure that at any time, someone in the OrgCom is already working hard to make every part of it true. On August 10th 2015, while most of these people will be deeply asleep, she will say, “And now on to Vienna Freshers’ 2015!”
