INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE
President: Victoria Lee (PAS)
Dep. President: James Lee (IBSH)
I am Victoria Lee, a junior from Pacific American School, and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your president of the International Court of Justice in HSINMUN XVI this year. My MUN journey began when I was just a mere 7th grader, and I am ecstatic to have the chance to chair at the conference where I first found my passion for MUN. Being a part of the MUN community has taught me more about empathy, awareness, and activism than I could have ever imagined and I am eternally grateful for that. Having been both an advocate and a president, I know ICJ seems daunting (maybe even a bit crazy) at times, but I assure you that this committee is the most amazing one yet! I hope you guys will have fun debating this case and I will see you all in court!
Greetings! I’m James Lee, a current sophomore at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park. I started my MUN career, like most people, as an admin, passing notes and filling up other people’s water bottles at HSINMUN XIII. After my first conference, I realized that I really enjoyed MUN, and my passion and enthusiasm for MUN has increased since. HSINMUN XVI will be my 16th conference and my fourth time in the ICJ. After being an advocate at HSINMUN last year, I am extremely honored to be the Deputy President of ICJ this year. I am also really excited to see a new generation of advocates debate in ICJ and hopefully this year’s court case will be very entertaining to watch as well as fun to debate. MUN not only improved my public speaking, it also has made me interested in current events and international relations. Outside of MUN, I enjoy binge watching TV shows, listening to music, and helping out the community. Some words of advice to the advocates this year: don’t wait until the last minute to work on the documents necessary for the case. Furthermore, prepare your witnesses well and hopefully you will find the experience enjoyable! If advocates or judges have any questions feel free to contact me!
