General Assembly 2nd Committee:
Economic and Financial
Chair: Meera Samani (TAS)
My name is Meera Samani. I am 17 years old, I attend Taipei American School, and am currently in 11th grade. I moved to Taiwan over the summer, and am still relatively new to the country. I was born in London and raised in Singapore, where I attended a total of around 20 Model UN conferences. I have chaired several times already, and am greatly looking forward to providing you all with the best possible conference experience. I know that sometimes a conference can be stressful or nerve-wracking, and I wanted to let you all know that I completely understand and am here in case you feel that you need any help or support regarding debate during the conference. Model UN is about engaging you all and helping you develop a deeper understanding about current global issues, so please do not hesitate to ask for any support regarding your engagement during the conference: I am here to help you grow as a delegate and MUN participant.
I look forward to getting to know you and working with you all.
Deputy Chair: Lin, Yu-Ta (KSHS)
Greetings, delegates! Welcome to the General Assembly Second Committee! I’m Dennis Lin, an 11 grader from Kaohsiung Municipal Kaohsiung Senior High (KSHS). It’s really my honor to serve as the co-chair of GA2 in STMUN this year. For me, Model United Nations cultivated me to become a better negotiator, debater, speaker, and leader, training me to enhance my capability. STMUN gave me my first delegate experience, and also my first time chairing. Whether you own a MUN experience or not, STMUN will definitely be your chance to improve yourselves. I encourage all of you to raise motions, send amendments, and deliver your speech; hope to see all delegations step out of your comfort zone, managing to be fierce and cooperating with your partners. Finally, enjoy the moment on the podium and have fun in STMUN!
