Welcome to HSINMUN XVII! I am Karen Tsung, a senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and I will be serving as your treasurer this year. Throughout my MUN career, I have not only developed traits of diplomacy and collaboration that conferences around Taiwan foster, but also increasing attention towards global issues—essential to my learning experience. I always find the camaraderie developed between delegates to be one of the best aspects during conferences. As a part of the working team this year, I have the pleasure to organize the logistics of HSINMUN and ensure finances are managed properly. Outside of MUN, my interests include baking, drinking bubble tea, and watching investigation discovery shows. I hope you enjoy your time at HSINMUN XVII, and we sincerely look forward to meeting you in October!
