General Assembly 3
Greetings! My name is Cheng-Yuan Li, a junior at the International Bilingual School in Hsinchu Science Park, and I’m thrilled to be a chair at STMUN XIV. Ever since my introduction to Model United Nations in middle school, I’ve been enamored with the process of conflict resolution and debates that allowed me to gain a much better understanding of the world around me. I can easily recall the apprehension that I felt during my first MUN conference, not just towards public speaking, but also towards the complicated nature of MUN. However, throughout the conferences I attended, I picked up confidence in tackling the above issues, as well as an appreciation for the way that Model United Nations allows everyone involved to gain a more nuanced global perspective. Throughout this year’s STMUN, no matter what country you represent, remember to delegate it to your full ability, advocating for its interests even if your personal views conflict with that of the country’s; additionally, I hope everyone is able to see MUN as something more than an extracurricular, instead seeing it as a way to monitor global trends and gain a much better overall understanding of the workings of the world. Welcome to STMUN XIV!
Greetings delegates! My name is Jacinda Lee, a current Junior at Kaohsiung American School, and it is my utmost honor to be serving as the deputy chair of GA3 for STMUN XIV. Joining KASMUN in eighth grade, as someone who is very shy and introverted, I found a significant amount of struggle trying to figure out what to say in my speech during my first conference, and I remember only being able to muster up the courage to give my first speech after checking multiple times with my block members. However, as I continuously participated in more conferences, I soon discovered my passion for the Model United Nations. Not only have I been able to gain innumerable knowledge of current issues through the research that went into resolution making and learned how to work efficiently together with group members, but I have also been able to greatly improve my public speaking skills. New delegates and old delegates alike, I hope to be able to aid in providing an environment in which you feel comfortable to give speeches and collaborate with other delegates to create resolutions towards major global issues. With that being said, I look forward to seeing you all in STMUN XIV!
