MEET THE

SECRETARIAT

Parliamentarian: Jasper Yeh

    I am Jasper Yeh, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu, and I am honored to be serving as your Parliamentarian at HSINMUN XV. While I have had the opportunity to participate in many conferences throughout Taiwan, ultimately, HSINMUN is still home. It was at HSINMUN where I saw the first MUN conference as an admin; where I joined one of the most intense committees I have ever seen; and where I got the chance to be part of a lovely secretariat team, creating opportunities for so many more students to practice diplomacy as well as debate, teamwork, and leadership skills. But MUN is not all I do! I also love running, watching TV shows, and eating snacks. If you would like some good TV show recommendations, come talk to me during HSINMUN! The secretariat team will strive to make HSINMUN XV the most memorable and rewarding experience for all of you, and we also want you to make the most out of this conference. I truly hope that everyone will walk into opening ceremony with an open mind, and leave closing ceremony as an even better global citizen. The secretariat team and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you soon!

Secretary General: Yvonne Kuo

        Hi! I’m Yvonne Kuo, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I am extremely honored to be serving as your Secretary General for the upcoming HSINMUN XV! Participating in my first ever MUN conference at HSINMUN X, it is my utmost honor to be finishing my high school MUN journey where it all started, at HSINMUN. During this era of rapid development and the rise of global issues, it is vital that students are just as involved and aware of the issues surrounding them and their future. This year, I hope to see students participating and speaking up for their represented nations, developing new friendships, and resolving global issues together. Apart from MUN, I enjoy binge-watching TV shows, traveling, and hanging out with friends. I, alongside the other members of the Secretariat and Working Team, hope to not only maintain the success of HSINMUN but also create an unforgettable conference for attendees and advisors. I’m so excited to see all of you at HSINMUN XV in October!

        I am Allison Ku, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park. It is my utmost honor to be serving as your Deputy Secretary General I in HSINMUN XV. I was first introduced to MUN through this very conference, and throughout my five years of MUN, I have attended over a dozen conferences serving as admin, press, delegate, and student officer. Further, I regularly participate in OMUN debates as part of their leadership team. What captivated me most about MUN was how it was able to bring together students from all over Taiwan and the world to act as agents of change in our world today, and how students were able to act as leaders for the future through cooperation, critical thinking, and charisma. Model United Nations has been a big part of my life ever since seventh grade, and I am forever grateful for it. Other than MUN, I enjoy binge-watching TV shows, debating, and eating good food. I look forward to an amazing conference and meeting all of you at HSINMUN!

Deputy Secretary General I: Allison Ku

        Welcome to HSINMUN XV! I’m Sunni Lin, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my utmost honor to serve as your Deputy Secretary General II. Having attended over 16 conferences across Taiwan, I remember not so much the topics and positions I’d had, but more of the faces of memorable people, the tingling sensation of debate, and the disappointments, excitement, and adrenaline that come with performing on such a global and demanding platform. MUN used to be my black hole, but it also now a rewarding home. I hope HSINMUN XV can be another stepping stone in your MUN career, whether it is that you overcome a fear, learn charisma, or achieve a global mindset. Don’t forget that you are the leaders of today and tomorrow. Other than MUN, I love dancing, cooking, and watching musicals. I can’t wait to meet you all in October - please don’t hesitate to stop by and chat if you see any of the secretariat team members walking around campus!

Deputy Secretary General II: Sunni Lin

        Greetings! My name is Aaron Chen, and it is my utmost pleasure to serve as your Deputy Secretary General III. As a current senior at IBSH, I began my MUN journey all the way back in eighth grade as an admin, originally unaware of the great implications of the activity. However, as I attended more conferences, I began to realize the importance of our work: we represent the future of society and are the problem solvers of tomorrow. Not only has Model United Nations prompted me to follow the news daily and ponder about the current events that affect our daily lives, it has also motivated me to attend fourteen MUN conferences ever since. Having chaired four conferences and served as Deputy Administration Coordinator, I can confidently say that MUN is truly a passion of mine — one that I will endeavor to directly pass on to you. I, along with the secretariat, will strive to facilitate your acquisition of knowledge and provide you with a truly memorable experience. We hope that with this conference, you can either begin or continue your path to becoming a global citizen while also conquering your public speaking fears. Welcome to HSINMUN XV!
