International Court of Justice
Enzo Hsu (PAS)
Hello judges and advocates! I'm Enzo Hsu, a junior at Pacific American School, and it's an honor to serve as your President for the Internation Court of Justice at STMUN this year. I started my MUN journey in 9th grade as a delegate striving to grasp the hold of analyzing international affairs and reach compromises between various stances for a feasible solution. Among lobbying, resolution drafting, and many other professional aspects of MUN, I found myself most intrigued by the intensive verbal debate and presentation, which led me onto an ICJ path since my sophomore year. Since then I've been in ICJ for 3 conferences, including last STMUN where I participated as an advocate. Having been both judge and advocate before, I understand that ICJ may appear as an intimidating committee with its unique procedures and identities. That's why I intend to assist committee members to the best of my ability to create a productive court and memorable STMUN experience for everyone. Feel free to contact me if you need help and see y'all in December!
Ethan Skonicki (IBSH)
Greetings! I am Ethan Skonicki, a sophomore at the International Bilingual School in Hsinchu Park. This will be my seventh Mun conference and my first chairing experience. It is my utmost honor to be serving as deputy president of the International Court of Justice in STMUN XVII this year. I started my MUN career as an admin passing notes and filling other delegate’s water bottles. After my first conference, I discovered that I had an interest in MUN, which soon blossomed into a passion. MUN has not only improved my public speaking skills, but it has also allowed me to learn more about current events happening around the globe. From learning different global policies to meeting new people from other schools, I truly believe that MUN is something that can be enjoyed by all. I am extremely excited to see the issue of Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (The Gambia v. Myanmar) being debated in this year’s ICJ. Outside of MUN, I enjoy binge watching TV shows, snacking, and playing basketball. I wish the advocates luck in preparing their court cases; if judges or advocates have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.
