Head Chair

Annina Vaisanen (IBSH)

Greetings! I am Annina Vaisanen, a current senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your head chair for this year's GA1. Having attended my first MUN conference over three years ago, I recall being instantly captivated by the staggering levels of diplomacy and cooperation which MUN embodies. Since then, MUN has played a focal role in my personal growth, opening my eyes to the manifold pressing issues we face as a global community as well as fostering my passion toward advocating for human rights. STMUN XIII will be my 11th conference serving as a student officer and my 17th conference overall. I hope that all those attending STMUN this year can take it as an opportunity to gain further insight on global issues, cultivate an objective outlook toward the world, and develop confidence in public speaking. Aside from MUN, I enjoy true crime, biology, and music. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, and I sincerely look forward to meeting you all this December!

Co-Chair

Yankee Leung (IIS)

Hey everyone! My name is Yankee Leung, a junior at I-Shou International School, and it is my utmost pleasure to serve as your deputy chair for General Assembly 1 in this year’s STMUN. Ever since my first contact with a formal MUN conference February of 2021, I fell in love with the experience this extracurricular activity has brought to me. As a lover of history and debate, MUN created the perfect platform for me to share my passion in the most significant way. Being a MUNer is so remarkable because everyone gets the opportunity to negotiate with one another, share different perspectives, and spark numerous fruitful discussions. If this is your first MUN conference, it is fine to feel nervous and miserable in the first place. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions regarding the procedure, techniques during debates, or just to talk to me in general. Last but not least, I hope that this conference will be an enjoyable experience for both you and me. Can’t wait to chair and meet you all this December!
