Max is a 1st year BSc Politics and International Relations student at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Originally from Berlin, Germany, he is German-American. His hobbies have been described verbatim as "human rights activism, going on too many Model United Nation trips and getting into Twitter arguments”. When he's not attending anti-imperialist protests, Max enjoys exploring the non-business districts of London neighborhoods and unsolicitedly sharing his opinion on geopolitical conflicts.
Michael (Mike) is an MSc International Relations Theory student at the London School of Economics and Political Science specializing in research related to Sino-US relations and China’s role in international institutions.
