General assembly ONE: Disarmament and international security committee
I am Ryoka Goto, a current junior from the International Bilingual School at Hsinchu Science Park (IBSH), and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your Chair for the General Assembly 1 (GA1). I embarked on my MUN journey in the beginning of 8th grade, as an admin for HSINMUN. Although I was not directly involved in debate, I was entranced by the professionalism and the diplomacy that each delegate carried themselves with while crafting solutions to the global issues we face. Since then, I’ve held this community very near and dear to me as it allowed me to increase my awareness as well as my perspective on matters we must combat as an interconnected society, exercised my problem solving skills, and awakened my passion of advocating for human rights. HIMUN VII, will be my 12th conference overall, and my third conference as chair. I hope that all delegates will enjoy their time debating and begin to treasure this community. Outside of MUN, I enjoy reading (everything, from sappy romance novels to auto-biographies), crocheting, and playing with my cat. Feel free to approach me anytime, and I look forward to meeting you all in March!
Greetings! I'm Hannah Chu, a senior at Hsinchu International School. I am thrilled and honored to be able to serve as your Co-Chair in the General Assembly 1 committee at HIMUN VII! HIMUN VII marks the twelfth conference I've ever attended and my third consecutive HIMUN conference. Though I began my MUN journey as a nervous and intimidated sophomore more than three years ago, I stepped out of my comfort zone as I became captivated by the intense yet diplomatic debate and gravitated toward the welcoming community I was surrounded by. Since then, MUN has become a great passion of mine and molded my worldview and sense of community while allowing me to meet inspiring and ambitious people in the process. If you've just recently started your MUN journey, remember that we've all started as new delegates and know how intimidating public speaking can be! Outside of MUN, I enjoy painting, baking, and cooking, so feel free to come to me to gush over your most recent creations or give me some of your tips and tricks! I'm also a big Marvel fan and will readily exchange hot takes, lore, and conspiracies with anyone that would listen. Don't hesitate to contact me about anything MUN or non-MUN-related; I'm always happy to help or talk! MUN has given me some of the most unforgettable experiences and memories I will cherish forever- hopefully, HIMUN VII is one of those conferences for you. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing you all in March!
