General Assembly 1 (DISEC)
Issue 101: Humane and Effective Measures to Disarm and Reintegrate Child Soldiers into Society
Issue 102: Addressing the issue of Bio and Chemical Weapons
Head Chair: Anderson Chung (HCAS)
I’m Anderson Chung, a current sophomore at Hsinchu County American School. It is with great gratitude and honor that I serve as the Head Chair of General Assembly 1.
I joined MUN in seventh grade and have attended eleven conferences ever since, which means that I started my MUN journey rather early compared to others at my school. From the instant I stepped into the gates of my first conference, I was in awe of how confident and professional everyone looked in the room yet filled with I shook my legs frantically as I made my way across to my seat. I have to admit, I only spoke once in my very first conference. I remember being traumatized by the anxiety and worry on that day. It was my friend who finally urged me to take a shot with the new MUN club my school started. My reluctant attitude then began to slowly fade away as time passed, looking back on that shy, timid kid who once was even scared to open his mouth and mind to the room. I couldn’t help but be grateful for the way this experience has crafted and shaped me into the person I am today. One piece of advice I would definitely give to new delegates is to believe in yourself and know that it’s okay to be nervous and possibly mess some things up on stage. We are all here to learn and improve ourselves by helping each other as a community.
But anyways, about myself, I enjoy playing the piano (sometimes making my own music), drawing (preferably sketching people), creating my own stories (I’m currently working on a novel), and watching movies & shows (who doesn’t). As a person who has stood in the shoes of a nervous, shy, and new delegate, I promise to do the best I can to provide help to my fellow delegates in GA1. I look forward to meeting you all at the conference. Thank you very much.
Co-chair: Henri Jan (TES)
Greeting delegates, I am Henri Jan, an H2 student at Taipei European School. I’ve been participating in MUN conferences since year 7 and have attended conferences including STMUN, DISMUN, TASMUN, and THIMUN. I am honoured to be co-chairing the General Assembly 1 (DISEC) for this conference and this is in fact my first attempt participating in a MUN conference as a student officer. MUN was not that easy in the first place, but then after I participated my first conference, things started to go on track. MUN is a place to exchange ideas, perspectives and discuss, and these components do make a MUN conference more enjoyable and interesting, therefore, I would hope delegates to try their best to engage in the lobbying session and make contributions to the final resolution. With that being said, I look forward to seeing a active and meaningful debate. Please do feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the conference. Good luck researching and preparing for the conference and see you all soon!
