Parliamentarian: Cassie Yang
Welcome to HSINMUN XVI! I’m Cassie Yang, a current senior at International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my utmost honor to be serving as the Parliamentarian for the upcoming HSINMUN XVI. Since starting my MUN journey back when I attended HSINMUN XII as an admin, MUN has helped me find my confidence and my voice. It has also inspired me to become a more global citizen. What I love about MUN is its exceptional ability to bring together people of different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. And besides participating in MUN conferences, my interests include reading and watching detective related movies and books in addition to searching for and devouring good food all around the world. No matter if this is your first or last time attending HSINMUN, I hope you guys treat HSINMUN as an opportunity to better yourself while having fun interacting with your fellow delegates. Finally, I am beyond excited to meet all of you guys this coming October and I wish you guys a pleasant time at HSINMUN XVI.
Secretary General: Mollie Cheng
I am Mollie Cheng, a junior at International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is an honor to serve as your Secretary General for HSINMUN XVI. I can still vividly recall my first MUN experience from HSINMUN XII, immediately drawn to the world of politics and intrigued by the power of diplomacy that delegates embodied. MUN has since shaped much of who I am, forming a large part of my own identity as I began to explore the various issues that plague our world today. In this decade of significant development, it is of paramount importance that we, the youth, remain persistent, updated, outspoken, and critical of issues that arise within the international community. I therefore encourage all participants to seize HSINMUN as an opportunity to debate open-mindedly, meet new friends, participate in productive discussions, and most importantly take steps towards achieving a global mindset. Outside of MUN, I enjoy rock climbing, binge watching Netflix shows, and hanging out with friends. The secretariat team and I look forward to working with all of you this year!
Deputy Secretary General I: Ellen Ryoo
I am Ellen Ryoo, a junior at International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my uttermost honor to serve as your Deputy Secretary General I at HSINMUN XVI! Model United Nations is a community that brings students from different backgrounds to discuss on the world’s most dire issues. It provides the students a chance to gain new perspectives, to understand international affairs, and to establish skills such as public speaking. Over the past four years, I have come to realize the significant impact Model United Nations had on my life. This activity not only shaped me as a person, but also allowed me to develop in various aspects. Therefore, I would like to encourage all of you to embrace this opportunity and make the best out of this conference. Aside from MUN, I enjoy listening to music, watching kdrama, and spending time with my friends and family. I truly hope that every participant would leave the conference with another valuable memory, whether it be that of friendship, experience, or knowledge. We sincerely look forward to meeting all of you at HSINMUN XVI this October!
Deputy Secretary General II: Ashley Huang
Hello everyone, my name is Ashley Huang, a senior attending the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I am extremely honored to be serving as one of the Deputy Secretary Generals for HSINMUN XVI this year. Ever since my first MUN experience as an admin in 7th grade, MUN has always held a special place in my heart because it has introduced me to diverse groups of people and expanded my awareness of world issues. Not only that, conferences like HSINMUN foster a professional and diplomatic environment that serves as a platform for students to prepare for a future as global leaders. Thus far, I have attended twelve conferences, with this being my thirteenth conference as well as my last HSINMUN. Thus, it is my hope that HSINMUN XVI will become a memorable and enlightening experience for all attendees and advisors. Outside of MUN, I enjoy reading, listening to music, and jogging. Feel free to approach me if you have any questions! I’ll see you all in fall!
Deputy Secretary General III: Alex Chen
I am Alex Chen, a junior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is my utmost pleasure to serve as your Deputy Secretary General III. I started my Model United Nations journey as a humble admin at HSINMUN XII in 7th grade. Since then, not only has Model United Nations become a core aspect of my extracurriculars, but it has allowed me to understand that it is only through cooperation, discussion, and reasoning can global issues be solved peacefully. As I continued to attend conferences, I began to realize why we do Model United Nations: we strive for the betterment of society and a brighter tomorrow. My passion for Model United Nations stems from the fact that it offers an environment for students to further a variety of skills, including teamwork, leadership, and public speaking. I, along with the other members of the Secretariat and Working Team, hope to provide you with the most memorable and rewarding experience. We are honored to be a part of your Model United Nations journey. Welcome to HSINMUN XVI!
