Greetings, delegates and fellow participants of HSINMUN XVII! I’m Wilson Tang, a senior at Hsinchu International School. It is an honor to serve as your Head Chair of the General Assembly 3 this year! After being introduced to the MUN world in seventh grade, I have accumulated 20 conference experiences-- attending as a delegate, as a chair, and as a Deputy Secretary-General. Taking the role of the Secretary-General for the Hsinchu International School MUN Club is a huge responsibility that I believe will continue to shape me into a better individual. Facing challenges and other obstacles during debate sessions is what makes you grow as an individual and please take every hardship as an opportunity for you to prove yourself. Don’t be discouraged and continue pursuing your passion in MUN is what improves you. This year’s GA3 issues are highly controversial, so I hope to see every single one of you actively debating and reaching a consensus! My advice to all of you is to simply take on an active role in solving global issues and speak up, whether it is a POI, speech, or amendment. Apart from MUN, I spend my time playing basketball and watching TV shows such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Flash. With that being said, I wish you all the best of luck!

Hello, HSINMUN delegates! I’m Kerrianne Chiu, a junior at Taipei American School, and it is my utmost honor to serve as your Deputy Chair for General Assembly 3. TASMUN in May marked my sixth conference over a span of two years participating in MUN, and it seems like just yesterday when I stepped foot into my first MUN practice, anxious, intimidated, and out of place—just all the worst feelings in the world possible. I’ve struggled with basic speech skills for a long time, and I’m somewhat ashamed to admit that I very much still do. Something important to me is making sure we, as chairs, establish a driven learning environment for all delegates to feel welcomed, confident, and free from criticism. I know perfectly well the occasional discomfort of public speaking, and I will do my job to the best of my ability to help delegates feel comfortable. I will also be striving to cultivate my capability as a student leader through this position. I will be working on familiarizing myself with both GA3 topics so feel free to email me questions on GA3 issues! I’m really looking forward to seeing you all at the conference!
