Head Chair

Darren Tsang (TAS)

Hi everyone! My name is Darren Tsang, a senior at Taipei American School, and it is my utmost pleasure to serve as your Head Chair General Assembly 4: SPECPOL this year. I will be the expert chair on topic 502: Strengthening measures to safeguard the security of Palestinian civilians. I began my MUN career as a delegate back in 7th grade, marking this year my sixth. I started MUN with the goal of enhancing my debate skills and public speaking skills. Throughout my journey in MUN I have since grown to enjoy all aspects of the MUN experience. I enjoy the intense yet diplomatic debate, the outlandish solutions proposed, and the experience of meeting new people. When I participated in my first MUN conference, I expected an ordinary weekend of intense debates and scholarly conversations. Never would I have thought that I would be drawn into the world of MUN and realized that I was pursuing something greater. During my free time, I like to play basketball, watch movies, and listen to music. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the topic regarding research! With that being said, I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Co-Chair

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!
