INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE
President: Cherry Chiu (IBST)
Dep. President: Natasha Lee (PAS)
I’m Cherry Chiu, a junior from International Bilingual School at Tainan Science Park (IBST), and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your President for the International Court of Justice along with Natasha in HSINMUN XIX this year. I started off as a delegate who barely spoke; however, through more MUN conferences and feedback from the chairs, I stepped out of my comfort zone. I became a global citizen invested in international relations and placed diplomatic incidents into greater perspective through MUN. With this being my 18th conference and my eighth time chairing, I hope to help all delegates to make this conference run as smoothly as possible. Aside from MUN, I enjoy reading and playing the clarinet. Please feel free to email or contact me if you have questions and I look forward to meeting you all in October! I hope that HSINMUN XIX would be a fun and educational event regardless of your experience and feel free to approach either Natasha or me if you have any questions!
Hi judges and advocates!
I am Natasha Lee, a junior at Pacific American School, and it is an honor to serve as your Deputy President for the International Court of Justice this year. I first started my MUN journey in eighth grade as a delegate. HSINMUN was my first conference, and I remember feeling scared and completely clueless about the workings of MUN. However, as I went to more conferences, I started to gain the confidence to express my opinions and found a love for intense debates and learning about new topics. In my freshman year, I started feeling that being a delegate did not allow me enough time to fully develop my thoughts on issues. As a result, I found ICJ much more intriguing, though challenging. Since then, I have been to four conferences as an advocate. Although I understand how hard learning the ICJ procedure may be in comparison to being in a normal committee, I hope that I can assist all of you, in any role, to try your best and eventually enjoy ICJ as much as I do. I look forward to meeting all of you at HSINMUN XIX!
