Kristin Chang (TAS)
I am Kristin Chang, currently a senior at Taipei American School. I am honored to be serving as the Chair of the General Assembly 3 (GA3) committee this year for STMUN. I started MUN in middle school with my first conference being SHASMUN, a challenging conference in Shanghai. From then on, I have had the opportunity to attend many other overseas and on-island conferences, including IASAS, MYMUN-OFs, SEOMUN, TAIMUN, and many more. This will be my eighth conference serving as a Student Officer. I started MUN in the interest of getting to learn about the different prevalent global issues, but along the way, I have found that MUN has also provided me with the opportunity to interact with delegates and chairs of different backgrounds and cultures. Ever since then, I have gained an abundance of knowledge and have found that participating in the program has been very rewarding. I really look forward to watching a fruitful debate unfold on the interesting topics we have for this year’s GA3 committee and to meeting all of you in December!
Cherry Chiu (IBST)
I’m Cherry Chiu, a freshman from International Bilingual School at Tainan Science Park (IBST), and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your Deputy Chair for General Assembly 3 (GA3) along with Head Chair Kristin Chang in STMUN XIII this year. I started off as a delegate who barely spoke; however, through more MUN conferences and feedback from the chairs, I stepped out of my comfort zone. I became a global citizen invested in international relations and placed diplomatic incidents into greater perspective through MUN. With this being my 10th conference and my first time chairing, I hope to help all delegates to make this conference run as smoothly as possible. Aside from MUN, I enjoy reading and playing the clarinet. Please feel free to email or contact me if you have questions and I look forward to meeting you all in December! I hope that STMUN XIII would be a fun and educational event regardless of your experience and feel free to approach either Kristin or me if you have any questions!
