President

Esther Duann

Hi delegates! I’m Esther Duann, a junior at Pacific American School (PAS), and it is my honor to serve as your head chair of the Human Rights Council (HRC) for this year’s STMUN. When I participated in MUN conferences for the first time, I was fascinated to see delegates collaborate with each other and debate complicated topics that seem impossible for us, who were only 8th graders at the time, to understand. With a seemingly ordinary weekend of intense debates and erudite conversations, I was drawn into the world of model UN and realized that I yearned for something greater. As I furthered my pursuit of this path, my interest in the different dynamics of global issues grew and was ingrained into me. STMUN XIV will be my ninth chairing experience, and I’m incredibly excited to participate in this year's HRC. Aside from MUN, my hobbies include watching Youtube, traveling, and listening to music. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing you in STMUN!

Deputy President

Warren Wang

Greetings delegates! My name is Warren Wang, a senior at Hsinchu County American School (HCAS), and it’s my utmost honor to serve as your deputy president for the Human Rights Council. I started MUN in grade 7 as a delegate who prepared nothing but an opening speech. In the following years, I learned to step out of my comfort zone, engage with other delegates, and instigate meaningful discussions in the house. Eventually, I helped introduce new delegates to MUN by familiarizing them with its procedures and assisting them during debate sessions. In my spare time, I enjoy playing basketball and coding websites; my favorite school subject is computer science, which I hope to major in. As the deputy president, I encourage all delegates to gather courage and openly discuss ideas on the podium, and I will do my best to make the conference fun and meaningful for everyone. Above all, I hope that delegates can view MUN conferences as a panel for them to broaden their perspective on the issue and scrutinize the world’s state of affairs. I wish you an amazing weekend at STMUN, and I look forward to seeing you there!
