Vivian Chiu (IBST)
I’m Vivian Chiu, a junior from the International Bilingual School at Tainan (IBST), and it is my utmost honor to serve as your President for Security Council.
I started MUN in grade 6 as a delegate that took no POIs and only managed a short speech to a delegate that was known for aggressively questioning the delegates of Myanmar and PRC about the Rohingya refugee crisis. Throughout the following years, MUN improved my public speaking skills, sparked my interest in international relations, and prompted me to step out of my comfort zone, eventually becoming a chair and leading delegates to embrace the world of MUN.
As your President, I would make this STMUN conference as educational, memorable, and exciting as possible. Delegates, immerse yourselves in the world of MUN! Throughout this conference, become globally aware citizens and propose new ideas without hesitation. I started MUN as a scared delegate, and since I have been able to step out of my comfort zone through the help of my chairs, as your President, I hope to do the same. Besides MUN, I also enjoy playing clarinet, debate, and reading. Talk to me if you also share these interests! I look forward to seeing you all at STMUN XIII!
Nian-Nian Wang (IIS)
I am Nian-Nian Wang, currently a senior at I-Shou International School, and it will be my utmost honor to serve as your Deputy President of the Security Council in STMUNXIII.
Since the beginning of my MUN journey, I couldn’t expect how engaging it would be to me as I felt the eagerness to pass my block’s resolution that took me a step forward to joining intense yet diplomatic debates and opening up myself during group discussions. MUN has also become influential and important to me personally which trained me to become a critical thinker, shaped me as an active follower of global issues, and helped me gain a better understanding of the world around me. Therefore, I would say we are contributing to forming a global community and developing the ability to feel what other people are feeling. In this way, I believe we can change the world starting by changing ourselves.
Apart from MUN, I enjoy watching video clips, eating, traveling around, and hanging out with friends. Do not hesitate and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns, and I sincerely wish you the best of luck during the conference. I am looking forward to fruitful debates and meeting you all this December.
