GA3 (Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural)
Hello, delegates! My name is Kyra Dean, and I am a current junior at Hsinchu International School. It is with utmost pleasure to be serving as your Head Chair for General Assembly 3 at this year's TAIMUN conference. I have been participating in MUN since the seventh grade, and TAIMUN XXI will be the 8th conference I've chaired and the 17th I've attended.
MUN is not only about finding your own opinion but also about listening and understanding the perspectives of others. Through my experiences in Model United Nations, I have become an active learner, an effective communicator, and a critical thinker and problem solver. MUN has enabled me to become more aware of issues that plague our world and shaped me into the global citizen I am today.
As your head chair, I want to make myself as approachable as possible and allow delegates to ask me about the issue at hand. In order to ensure that the most effective and feasible solutions are produced, I highly encourage all delegates to complete extensive background research on the topic beforehand. New delegates may feel shy to speak up at first because they are unsure of debate procedure and their respective country stances, but I want to be the one to provide you with the confidence you need to approach the podium and voice your opinions. As I was once that shy delegate unable to approach the floor, I hope that at this conference, I can assist all delegates in allowing them to express themselves and become active fighters for our future.
With that being said, I truly cannot wait to see you all at TAIMUN XXI this April!
My name is Richard Lin, a junior attending Asia American International Academy (AAIA). It is my utmost honor to be chosen to serve as the co-chair of the General Assembly 3 at TAIMUN XXI! This will be my tenth conference and my fourth time chairing. Ever since beginning my Model UN journey as an anxious freshman, I have loved immersing myself in the enthusiastic and enlightening atmosphere that conferences provide.
Something I like a lot about MUN is how the topics are related to topics in our personal lives. While MUN may not have any real impact on the "real world” per se, the problems we discuss are indeed real and significant, affecting people all over the world. I will try my best as chair to help you guys understand the tangible implications of the topics at hand and build arguments upon those ideas. I have always found chair reports to be extremely helpful in learning and preparing for the conference, and I wrote the chair report with that in mind. No matter whether you are a first-timer or an experienced delegate, it is because of this that I highly recommend reading the chair report before the conference. Aside from being better prepared for the conference, you will also gain a deeper understanding of the ongoing events in the world.
Aside from MUN and schoolwork, I enjoy watching anime and playing basketball. I have also studied karate for years, earning my black belt in fifth grade. I wish you all best of luck and look forward to seeing you in April!
