GENERAL ASSEMBLY II:
ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL
Chair: Hubert Chang (IBST)
Co-Chair: Sophia Wu (AAIA)
My name is Hubert Chang, a junior from International Bilingual School at Tainan Science Park, and I’ll be serving as your Head Chair of the General Assembly 2. This will be my third year of doing Model UN and my fourth time chairing a committee. Outside of Model UN, I run a Science Club at our school to offer my fellow classmates and underclassmen a chance to enjoy the wonders of engineering, experiments, and many other STEM-related activities. From building massive cardboard bridges from scratch to experimenting with VR technology, there’s truly never a dull moment to be had. My club has become a large part of my identity and taught me many things about innovation and leadership, skills I now use in everyday life. As for hobbies, I do graphic design, digital art, watch anime, read books, and play a lot of video games. I may not get much direct sunlight, but at least I can fix all your tech issues, probably. I have a word of advice for any delegates that may be anxious: two, actually. First, pretend like you’re constantly being recorded: you better look confident if you don’t want to cringe when your friends force you to watch it later, right? Second, just stop being nervous and take the step forward: if you feign your confidence for long enough, it’ll eventually become genuine confidence. Although my use of rhetorical flair will be limited as a chair, I hope I can lighten up the tension and anxiety inside the minds of the less-experienced delegates we may find. I most certainly look forward to an engaging and exciting conference; see you all later this coming October, cheers.
Hello, delegates! My name is Sophia Wu, a current sophomore at Asia American International Academy. I am thrilled to be serving as your deputy president for GA2 at HSINMUN XVIII. This will be my tenth conference and my fourth 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 viewing issues from multiple perspectives. 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 me 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. My hobbies include reading, running, and watching true crime documentaries. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I am looking forward to seeing you all in October!
