UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
President: Felipe Dombkowski (AST)
Dep. President: Heidi Hsu (IBSH)
Hi, my name is Felipe Dombkowski, a senior at the American School in Taichung, and I am thrilled to serve as your United Nations Development Programme President for HSINMUN XVII! Participating in MUN since my eighth-grade year, I have attended various MUN conferences from which I have gained many valuable skills such as debating, researching, and public speaking, that I can apply to my academic and daily life. In addition to learning new skills, one of my favourite things about MUN is how global it is. Through MUN, I have met many people with culturally diverse backgrounds who present many different insights on issues that are being faced every day. This variety of insight is extremely valuable to me as it not only allows for multiple alternative approaches to issues but also serves as a reminder for me to try and approach issues while considering different perspectives and points of view. Aside from MUN, I really enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, going to the gym, and playing FIFA on the XBOX. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I would be more than happy to help you with anything! I hope that you are just excited for HSINMUN XVII as I am, and I am looking forward to seeing you all in October!
My name is Heidi Hsu, a current senior at the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park, and it is a pleasure to serve as your deputy president. I joined MUN as a freshman, hoping to meet new people, develop my public speaking skills, and broaden my knowledge on public affairs. Ever since, I’ve been captivated by the passionate discussions among the delegates and the fun of representing your stance, no matter how radical it may be. I believe many of you share the same passion I have for MUN, and hope you continue on the path of fostering your debate skills and increasing your insight on current events from conferences, which is a truly rewarding experience. Aside from MUN, I enjoy listening to music (pop, kpop, etc), hanging out with friends, and watching movies and YouTube. I hope HSINMUN XVII will be an enjoyable conference for all of you!
