Human Rights Council
Hello everyone! I am your HRC President, Shannon Yen, and it is my utmost honor to serve as your head chair for this committee at this year's STMUN. MUN has shaped me very much in the sense that it has brought more attention to all of us regarding the issues of the world in the past, present and future. The conference isn’t just merely a place for discussion regarding global issues, but rather a place for providing opinions and letting your own voice be heard! With this conference, I hope that you’ll be able to dive deep into the topics prepared for HRC and have fun exploring them; after all, information is (of course) limitless, and MUN is a chance for you to learn new things and explore new topics! I find this year’s topics to be particularly entertaining since these topics are becoming more prevalent as technology becomes a major focus of the world.. That being said, I hope that you’ll enjoy STMUN as much as I do! Besides MUN, I absolutely enjoy anything related to yarn (and crochet and perhaps the arduous hobby of knitting), eating bread, having a severe news-reading addiction, and playing basketball (but missing every shot). Feel free to contact/message me before the conference especially if you have any questions. Otherwise, see you soon during STMUN!Along with MUN, I enjoy playing the guitar, watching Netflix, and photography. If you have any questions regarding the conference, don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you there!
Hello Delegates! I am Vera Wu, a sophomore at Taipei European School. It is a great honour to serve as your deputy chair for the Human Rights Council at STMUN XV. I started my MUN journey in Grade 6: entering my first conference as a reserved and quiet delegate. I had prepared a one-page resolution and an opening speech with no intention of speaking more than necessary. Despite my fear of public speaking at the time, I found myself walking to the podium more and more. Model United Nations not only provided me with a platform to develop my confidence and public speaking skills through the debate during discussions. But also my knowledge of relevant global issues as we explore real-world diplomatic incidents. As your deputy chair, I want to make STMUN XV a learning experience for you to develop your skills in the world of MUN but, simultaneously, a fun and memorable conference for everyone. I hope to assist you in this new or familiar environment so that you can learn something new regardless of your experience.
