Human rights council
I am Megan Ong, a junior from Taipei Kuei Shan School and I will be serving as the President of the Human Rights Council for HIMUN VIII!
As a person interested in global politics, Model United Nations quickly gained my attention. I started Model United Nations in middle school, and so far I’ve been to around 9 conferences in total. However, don’t feel pressured! I am sort of a newbie when it comes to chairing as well, so if you are a beginner, it’s alright, because you will not be the only one in the room who is still learning! No matter whether you are a beginner or an intermediate, don’t be afraid to speak up, because practice makes perfect! I still remember when I first participated in Model United Nations, I wasn’t familiar with the procedures as well as how to produce a resolution. Though, by actively involving myself in the debates and discussions, I slowly picked up the tips and what everyone was doing, while still making small mistakes. Once again, my advice to those who are beginners or not confident with their MUN skills, practice makes perfect, and it’s okay to make mistakes through the process!
In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, my favourite artist is Joji, but I have been into Japanese Pop music lately. One of my current favourites is Limbo by Haruno. Hit me up if you also like Japanese pop! Besides listening to music, I also enjoy cooking and doing yoga.
In the Human Rights Council, I will be focusing on the topic of ensuring the prevention of censorship in the media, and I am extremely excited to hear the speeches and engage in the debates on the topic. Feel free to message me through Instagram (@meganongg__) or email me (email@example.com) if you have any questions regarding the topic or the Human Rights Council.
See you all in March! :D
Welcome to HIMUN VIII!
My name is Ashley Wang and I am a senior at Hsinchu International School. It is my utmost pleasure to be serving as your co-chair for the Human Rights Council this year.
I have been doing MUN ever since I was in junior high and I’ve attended around 10 conferences as a delegate throughout the years. HIMUN VIII will be my first experience as a chair! I have always looked up to my MUN seniors and experienced peers. Watching them and other delegates from all over the island come together to reach resolutions was satisfying and fulfilling to watch, and I vowed to be just like them. As I kept attending simulations and other public conferences, I was molded into a quick-thinking, confident public speaker. I truly started to love the processes, debates, and getting to know like-minded delegates; additionally, I have made it my personal goal to help delegates however and whenever I can, especially new ones!
Besides MUN, I love fencing, swimming, singing, hanging out with friends, and making handmade jewelry.
For HIMUN VIII, I will be focusing on The Question of Combating the Repression of Freedom of Religion in the Middle East. I am so honored to be serving as your co-chair for one of my last conferences. I look forward to seeing you all in March!
