Greetings! I am Fiona Stokes, a rising senior attending Hsinchu International School. As HSINMUN XVIII will be my ninth conference as I enter my third year in MUN, I am beyond honored to serve as your Head Chair for GA4. I will be specializing on the issue “(202) The issue of Tigray”. It is my utmost pleasure to serve as your guide and humble companion all the way from your early preparations and drafting of resolutions prior to the conference until your final moments at the conference when we meet. I hope to create a stimulating environment that allows delegates to engage and debate diplomatically. As you lobby, pass notes and discuss with one another in unmoderated caucuses, I hope you find both diplomatic alliances and true friendships. Amidst the intense debate and cross-fire, we form many unforgettable memories and relationships. Hopefully, GA4 will be our own coven of alliances and friendships. MUN has helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. I became a better public speaker, writer, reader, friend, and so much more. Outside of MUN, I enjoy photography – especially taking film pictures around Hsinchu with my disposable camera. Recently, I just finished binge-watching the newest season of Stranger Things on Netflix. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding MUN or Netflix recommendations. I will be at your disposal to talk about anything and everything. I look forward to meeting you!

Hi, delegates! I am Ryoka Goto, a current junior from the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park (IBSH), and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your Deputy Chair for General Assemble 6 (GA6) in HSINMUN XVIII. I embarked on my MUN journey at the beginning of 8th grade as an admin for HSINMUN. Although I was not directly involved in the debate, I was entranced with the professionalism and the diplomacy that each delegate carried themselves while crafting solutions to the global issues we face. Since then, I’ve attended numerous conferences, which have not only increased my awareness of matters we must combat as an interconnected society, and consequently have broadened my perspective as well as exercised my problem-solving skills, but also awakened my passion for advocating for human rights. HSINMUN XVIII will be my 9th conference overall, and my first conference as chair. I hope to create an environment where delegates can confidently articulate their take on the issue and enjoy their time debating. Outside of MUN, I enjoy reading (everything, from sappy romance novels to auto-biographies), crocheting, and playing with my cat. Feel free to approach me anytime, and I look forward to meeting you all in October!
