Parliamentarian: Cheng-Yuan Li
Welcome to HSINMUN XIX! I am Cheng-Yuan Li, a senior at the International Bilingual School in Hsinchu Science Park, and I’m honored to serve as your Parliamentarian for this year’s HSINMUN. Ever since my introduction to Model United Nations, I’ve been enamored with the process of conflict resolution and debates that allowed me to gain a much better understanding of the world around me. It has been an absolute pleasure to take part in MUN conferences all around Taiwan, and to see delegates devote themselves to tackling issues that seem incredibly complex. I hope that timid delegates can use this year’s HSINMUN to overcome their trepidation of public speaking, and more experienced delegates can use this year’s HSINMUN to develop a nuanced global perspective. Throughout this year’s HSINMUN, no matter what country you represent, remember to delegate it to your full ability, advocating for its interests even if your personal views conflict with that of the country; additionally, I hope everyone is able to see MUN as something more than an extracurricular, instead of seeing it as a way to monitor global trends and gain a much better overall understanding of the workings of the world. I, along with the rest of the Secretariat Team, wholeheartedly welcome you to HSINMUN XIX!
Secretary General: Ethan Skonicki
Welcome to HSINMUN XIX! I am Ethan Robert Skonicki, a senior at the International Bilingual School in Hsinchu Park. It is my utmost honor to be serving as your Secretary General at HSINMUN XIX this year. Over the few years I’ve been involved with MUN, I have discovered that it is a really dynamic and intensive activity that is incredibly rewarding for those who participate. MUN has played an integral role in my high school experience and has shaped my perspective on the issues that people face around the world. Although some may find MUN comes easily to them, others may have difficulty adjusting to the heavy emphasis on public speaking or the research portion of MUN. It’s okay if you find yourself reluctant to participate in the debate. However, everything has a learning curve, and I hope delegates utilize HSINMUN to grow as a debater and as a person. All that said, I’m extremely excited to welcome you to HSINMUN XIX, and I hope to see all of you there in October.
Deputy Secretary General: Jeffrey Wan
Welcome to HSINMUN XIX! I am Jeffrey Wan, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I am honored to serve as your Deputy Secretary General for this year's HSINMUN. My MUN journey actually began here in HSINMUN, passing notes and filling water bottles for delegates as an admin. I quickly became entranced by the intense debate and was surprised at the willingness of everyone to contribute to the discussion. As I joined the club and began to attend conferences as a delegate myself, I was mesmerized by the sheer size of the MUN world, with passionate students not just in every corner of Taiwan but also across the globe. Through MUN, I’ve been able to meet many people of different backgrounds, and these experiences have taught me valuable lessons about public speaking, problem-solving, and viewing global events from numerous unique perspectives. At this year’s HSINMUN, whether you are a novice or an experienced delegate, I hope to see you guys collaborating, being creative, and most importantly, having fun. I’m extremely excited to welcome you to HSINMUN XIX, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone in October!
Deputy Secretary General: Ryoka Goto
Welcome to HSINMUN XIX! I am Ryoka Goto, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I’m so thrilled to be serving as your Deputy Secretary General for this year’s conference. For me personally, Model United Nations has shaped much of who I am today. When tackling issues and yielding solutions, I’ve time and time placed myself in the shoes of world leaders. This helps me realize why they take a certain course of action that is conventionally viewed as “wrong” or “pointless” and has taught me to be more understanding, open-minded, and considerate. Currently, our society is becoming increasingly interconnected and problems more polarized. Consequently, it is important for our generation to utilize their abilities and qualities to pump out solutions to multifaceted issues. With all that being said, I hope participants can find their voice, and come to find MUN as rewarding as I did. Please, have the most fun making friends and reconnecting with others. We are absolutely delighted to have you and sincerely hope you have the best time at HSINMUN XIX!
Deputy Secretary General: Shannon Yen
Hello everyone, and welcome to HSINMUN XIX! I am Shannon Yen, a junior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my utmost honor to serve as your Deputy Secretary General for HSINMUN this year. MUN’s always been one of my favorite activities, because of the deep discussion regarding current events, the thrill of public speaking, and the diplomacy, negotiating, and discussion that is part of it. It is absolutely wonderful to be here at HSINMUN XIX, where my MUN journey began, and I dearly hope that delegates this year can utilize HSINMUN XIX as an opportunity for speaking out, both through expressing their views as a delegate of a real-life country and for broadening their understanding of their real world. I look forward to seeing everyone in October, and please do have fun, enjoy, and look forward to HSINMUN XIX!
Deputy Secretary General: Hannah Fu
Welcome to HSINMUN XIX! I am Hannah Fu, a current junior at International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I am honored to serve as your Deputy Secretary General for HSINMUN this year. Since I was introduced to Model United Nations, I have been inspired to explore new areas as well as remain aware of current issues. At first, I only focused on a few committees, but later I quickly expanded and found all of them equally important. What I really love about MUN is that it is a great way to communicate, connect, and cooperate with other delegates in different schools, which is a really unique and valuable experience for me. Through MUN, I developed various new aspects of different issues, which reminds me to always consider all sorts of perspectives in different situations. Please utilize your time effectively at HSINMUN to connect, socialize, collaborate, negotiate, and debate as I believe it will be a fun experience if you do so. I look forward to seeing everyone in October for HSINMUN XIX!
