President: Sophia Wu (AAIA)
Dep. President: Yichia Lee (IBSH)
My name is Sophia Wu, a current senior at Asia American International Academy. I am thrilled to be serving as your president for APQ at HSINMUN XIX. My MUN journey embarked during my freshman year. This will be my fourteenth conference and my sixth time chairing. In the beginning, I only expected MUN to improve my confidence in public speaking and increase my understanding of global issues. However, MUN has allowed me to develop the skill of. Furthermore, I have made new friends and learned skills from other delegates. It is captivating to see delegates utilize their creativity to draft feasible solutions while remaining on their stance. From my first conference till now, MUN has given an extensive knowledge of pressing global issues and proven to me that MUN isn’t about judging the rights and wrongs of matters, instead it focuses on receiving outside opinions to help come to a compromise. Outside of MUN, my other hobbies include reading, running, and watching true crime documentaries. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions. I am looking forward to seeing you all in October!
My name is Yichia Lee, and I will be serving as your APQ Deputy President for HSINMUN XIX. I am a current junior at International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park (IBSH). Someone once told me if you don’t at least make an attempt, you won’t ever know. In MUN, you learn from experience and attempt things you have only ever tried in the confines of your own mind or room. You speak out, so others can hear your voice, you make changes, and you set precedents within your own small Model United Nations community. You thrive in a vast pool of outspoken, creative delegates/experts guided by the head of your committee and your own values and opinions. This is the exact environment you join the moment you step into the diverse MUN community here at HSINMUN--the very same one I encountered several years ago. This will be my first time chairing after attending eight conferences as a delegate/admin, and I am incredibly thrilled to be sharing this eye-opening experience with you all. No matter how wayward this conference may go, I look forward to seeing you all flourish and grow in, perhaps, a new or even a familiar atmosphere. Thank you for attending HSINMUN XIX and trying your very best to make a change and speak boldly, frankly, and openly because whatever you choose to do, makes a difference for everyone else.
