Economic and Social Committee (ECOSOC)
Middle School Committee
President: Jaida Dean (HIS)
Dep. President: Kai Hang Seow (IBSH)
Hello, delegates! My name is Jaida Dean, a junior at Hsinchu International School. It is my absolute honor to be serving as your President at this year’s HSINMUN XVII conference. I started my MUN career in the 7th grade in hopes of improving my public speaking as well as my debating skills. Needless to say, after just one conference, I realized that I had been completely mistaken about what the purpose of MUN was. MUN is not a one-time conference where you debate world issues and create comprehensive resolutions. In fact, MUN is a chance for you to make an impact in our current world, for you to help broaden your knowledge of the world, for you to become problem solvers and critical thinkers. I have attended 19 conferences in my four years of MUN. Through these conferences, I have been able to meet some of the brightest, most engaged people, exercise my public speaking skills as well as stay informed on pressing world issues. With that being said, I genuinely hope to create a memorable conference this year, and I look forward to seeing delegates actively participating in the conference to create a better world for future generations. See you at HSINMUN XVII!
Hi, I'm Kai Hang, a sophomore from the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park. I will be serving as your deputy president of the Economic and Social Council for the upcoming HSINMUN XVII. My MUN career started in 7th grade, when I was just an admin at HSINMUN XIV. Since then, MUN has helped me to be less fearful of public speaking and interacting with those I don't know. Besides, I also learned to be more aware of what is happening in the world around me. Not to mention, MUN has also sharpened my critical thinking skills in finding ways to solve these global issues. I hope that delegates could learn something in this upcoming conference and most importantly, have fun and enjoy MUN.
