General Assembly 4
Mindy Tsai (KAS)
Greetings, delegates and fellow participants of STMUN XIII!
I am Mindy Tsai, a senior from Kaohsiung American School. It is my honor to serve as your Head Chair of the General Assembly 4 this year. I stepped foot into the world of MUN five years ago at STMUN VIII and was struck by the possibilities of MUN in just a single conference. Seeing delegates exchange diverse perspectives back and forth throughout the entire debating floor, I was awestruck by the range of opportunities MUN has given us, leading students closer to the cutting edge of global issues. Although standing at the podium can seem daunting, I encourage you all to take up the challenge and step out of your comfort zone. Whether that be delivering a speech, making a POI, or submitting an amendment, I hope every delegate in the house will contribute their unique perspectives to bring about the most enjoyable conference. Apart from MUN, you can find me playing volleyball, reading novels, or jamming to lofi music. If you have any questions, concerns, or simply just up for a chat, feel free to come up to me any time! With that being said, I wish you all the best of luck. See y’all at STMUN XIII!
Estella Chen (KAS)
Dear delegates, I am Estella Chen, a junior at Kaohsiung American School (KAS), serving as your deputy chair for General Assembly 4. I first embarked on my MUN journey in sixth grade as a delegate at STMUN VIII. When I attended my first MUN conference, I was shocked by the professionalism of the delegates and the dynamic of the conference. From there, I became intrigued by the different viewpoints of delegates, which came with some confusion when I tried to put myself in their shoes. It drew me into the world of MUN as I slowly grasped ahold of what MUN was and how those relentless hours of debating pieced together an experience like no other. Joining MUN has not only introduced me to my hobby of debating but has also given me the opportunity to view current events through various lenses. This will be my first time chairing and there’s nothing more that I look forward to than fostering a welcoming environment for all delegates and sharing my love for MUN with them. Aside from MUN, in my free time, I enjoy reading webtoons and YA novels, listening to music, and brewing new tea blends. Through this conference, I hope we can have a worthwhile experience and collaborate with fellow delegates. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions and best of luck to all of you. I look forward to seeing all of you at STMUN XIII!
