General Assembly 6
Jeffrey Huang (PAS)
Hello, delegates! I’m Jeffrey Huang, a junior at Pacific American School (PAS), and it is my utmost honor to serve as your deputy president of the General Assembly 6 for STMUN XII. I first entered the hectic world of Model United Nations as an anxious and baffled eighth-grader; ever since then, the pathways MUN has paved never fail to fascinate me. I immerse myself in the charm of youth activism and ponder, in awe, the rich beauty of finding solutions and ramifications to global issues. Beyond all else, the best of MUN as a leader is to converge with like-minded teenagers and support them as they break away from their cocoon of self-doubt and unease. No matter if this is your first conference or the twentieth, I will try my best to assist you in order to make this conference fun and meaningful. Aside from MUN and catching up with homework, I enjoy catching up on sleep and jogging. I wish you all the best of luck and look forward to seeing you guys in December!

Hi guys! I’m Emma Hwang, and I’m a junior in Hsinchu County American School. Regarding MUN, STMUN XIII will be my second time chairing. I started doing MUN a year ago and have been to numerous conferences since. I believe that MUN is useful as it not only helps with your debating skills, but it also improves your self-esteem as you attend more conferences because you get confident as you speak more. MUN helps you to acquire more knowledge about issues around the world and sometimes also introduces you to new perspectives that you may not have considered before. Improving your debating ability and knowing about current affairs is important because it equips you with better critical thinking skills that can be applied in the future. To the delegates in my committee, welcome! My advice to new delegates for the conference is to be prepared for a fast-paced debate. I also highly encourage you to speak at least once during the conference. Although it may seem difficult, this obstacle will probably be the biggest one you face. I wish you all the best of luck and I look forward to working with all of you!
