President

Meera Samani (TAS)

My name is Meera Samani. I am 17 years old, I attend Taipei American School, and by the time the conference comes around, I'll be in the 12th grade. I moved to Taiwan over the summer, and am still relatively new to the country. I was born in London and raised in Singapore, and moved to Taiwan during the summer of 2020. I have participated enthusiastically in MUN for over 6 years now, and STMUN XIII will be my 27th Model UN conference. This will be my 9th opportunity to chair at a conference, and I am greatly looking forward to providing you all with the best possible experience. MUN has greatly improved my understanding of global issues and international conflicts, and helped me broaden my view regarding various global situations. I feel that MUN has been crucial for me in terms of becoming more aware as a global citizen, especially having lived in multiple countries. I anticipate watching you all grow as speakers and MUN participants, and find innovative solutions to the issues at hand. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you all in December!

Deputy President

Paul Lee (IIS)

Greetings! My name is Paul, a current senior studying at I-Shou International School. It is my pleasure to serve as your Deputy President for the UNDP at STMUN XIII. I began my MUN career in 7th grade as an admin. I was amazed by how delegates negotiate with each other through their country stances and strive to construct plausible solutions for global issues together. Since then, I was delighted to participate in each MUN conference because it improved my ability to express my thoughts and raised my worldwide awareness and open-mindedness through the research process. This year, I continued to pursue my beloved path, and I hope delegates can enjoy MUN as much as I am. Please don’t be afraid of making mistakes, as it is a crucial learning process. If you need support from me, don’t hesitate to contact me as I am more than willing to assist you. Aside from MUN, I love listening to K-pop music, watching Japanese Anime, and trying different types of cuisines! I hope you guys feel confident and be ready to have a wonderful experience. Best wishes to all of you, and I’m looking forward to meeting you in December!
