Katie Chen & Sheena Chiang
Welcome to HSINMUN XVII! I'm Katie Chen, a current senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I will be serving as your administration coordinator this year. Starting my MUN career as an inexperienced sixth grader at a jrO-MUN conference and later at HSINMUN XIII, MUN has allowed me to gain a better global perspective, as well as encouraged me to advocate for change in the world. Originally beginning my MUN career due to my interest in current events and desire to improve my public speaking skills, I hope to help everyone do the same, along with building confidence and finding their voice through MUN. Throughout the years, I have not only learned how to find diplomatic ways of solving issues, but have also gained valuable friendships and knowledge, and I hope to help everyone do the same. Outside of MUN and academics, I enjoy having fun with my dog, playing badminton, and reading comics. As part of the working team this year, I hope to help host a memorable and enjoyable HSINMUN XVII, and we look forward to seeing you in October!
Welcome to HSINMUN XVII! I am Sheena Chiang, a junior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my greatest pleasure to serve as the deputy admin head this year. I never would have experienced the rich, purposeful world of MUN had I not signed up to be an admin as a first year in middle school. The atmosphere of everyone working in tandem, rushing to place everything in order, and the feeling of being absolutely drained but completely fulfilled was such a heady experience that I fell in love with this activity. Since then, I have learned to scrutinize solutions to current issues critically from different points of view. MUN is not only an opportunity to meet new people, but a chance to practice being a global citizen, distinguish what actions should be taken, and contribute what we can to the global scene. It is my honor to pass this experience on and strive to make this conference run as smoothly as possible for all participants. Aside from MUN, I like to immerse myself in reading, crocheting and basketball. On behalf of the working team, we hope you make the most of HSINMUN XVII and look forward to seeing you flourish!
