International Court of Justice
Greetings! I am Darrin Lin, a senior from Kaohsiung American School, and it is an honor of mine to serve as your president for the ICJ this year.
STMUN, to me, is like no other conference; it marked many of the “firsts” in my MUN career: my first-ever MUN conference, SC delegation, ICJ debate, and chairing experience all took place here. Thanks to MUN, I was introduced to the complex world of foreign policy and diplomacy; the experiences and knowledge which I gained from the activity are invaluable. We might all know MUN as an activity of socializing, buying expensive suits, and making (un)cool analogies, but I hope this conference will help you learn and grow as you continue your MUN journey. Outside MUN, I enjoy photography, tennis, and occasionally playing the piano. I understand that ICJ may appear as an intimidating committee with its unique procedures and identities, so feel free to reach out to me for help. I look forward to seeing all of you in December!
Hello! I’m Devin Kang, a senior at Pacific American School, and it’s my pleasure to serve as your Deputy President for the ICJ this year. For someone who enjoys weaving together narratives to explain my stance and coming up with game plans to navigate debates, ICJ is an incredibly fun and rewarding activity. ICJ debates are known for their more advanced and comprehensive nature, which allows for more of this creativity. With my five conferences of experience in ICJ, having served as an advocate, witness, and president, I truly understand the thrill of participating in this unique court simulation. So I plan on facilitating a productive session in the conference, guiding everyone through the steps leading up to the event to ensure that everyone can enjoy ICJ just as much as I did. Feel free to reach out to me if you need any help, and I look forward to overseeing the advocates clash in December.
