My name is Eric Gulotty, a senior from Asia American International Academy, and it is my honor to be serving as your president for this year’s Security Council. I began my MUN career in middle school as a delegate, and have since then slowly grown to enjoy nearly all aspects of the MUN experience. HIMUN IV will be my 17th conference and my seventh time chairing. I enjoy MUN for multiple reasons, from the intense yet diplomatic debate-style; to the creative or even outlandish solutions proposed by delegates; to the experience of meeting new people and making new friends. I believe that MUN has a little something for everyone, and I am always learning or experiencing new things at every conference I attend. Aside from MUN, I enjoy playing basketball, gaming, and catching up on sleep. I hope this conference will provide you all with a meaningful and fun experience, regardless of how long you have participated in MUN, and I look forward to meeting all of you in March!
I’m Sophia Zuo, a current sophomore at the International Bilingual School in Hsinchu Science Park, and I’m honored to be your main chair this HIMUN! I started my MUN journey in seventh grade by being a wandering admin, feet bruised and body exhausted by the end, but I had a newfound and deeper interest in the club and sphere that has led me to the place I am today. Personally, MUN has been an outlet for expressing my own ideas, but with the needed barriers of feasibility, country relations, and practicality that are pertinent to the world agenda today. By taking on and adhering to a country's stance, you find yourself immersed in a situation where you are forced to think of outside of the box solutions while sticking to your personal goals. It’s also a way I found my own voice in public speaking, and I hope that can happen to you as well. With HIMUN being about my 13th conference, I’m looking forward to being in a special committee and will put my all in to help facilitate and urge delegates to warm up to the committee. Other than that, I enjoy reading, writing, looking at frog memes, and watching stupid tiktoks, and am also part of some fandoms so please feel free to discuss with me about anything! The Security Council is a very demanding committee, with delegates expected to remain constantly active and on stance, so I hope delegates do their best in debate and lobbying! Lastly, delegates, don’t forget to put your all into country research and stay active in debate to really get the most out of HIMUN V!
