Hello everyone! This is Ting Tsai, a current junior at Hsinchu County American School (HCAS), and it is an honor for me to serve as your deputy chair at TAIMUN for the Human Rights Council! For the past several years, I have participated in various MUN conferences, and they have inspired me so much to help with my community and to also work on projects that help with the environment. MUN has also exposed me to various humanitarian topics that have inspired me to advocate for rights in my community. These conferences have also allowed me to learn more about current events around our world and taught me that anyone can make change in our world.

 

In my free time, I am rather passionate about creating artwork, such as music, photography, theatre, water-coloring, and more. Additionally, I enjoy physical activities such as running, swimming, calisthenics, and yoga. As aforementioned, Model United Nations has exposed me to issues related to the environment at a conference, and I combined this passion of mine with that of art by donating the profits of my album to an organization related to eliminating plastic pollution in the oceans. I hope that we can all transfer our debate and other skills to the real world and help improve our world together.

 

Hopefully, MUN will also provide you an equally inspiring experience to improve our world as a global society and transform you into global leaders! We wish you an amazing weekend at HSINMUN, and I look forward to meeting you all there!

Greetings delegates!

 

My name is Richard Lin, a sophomore attending Asia American International Academy (AAIA). It is my utmost honor to be serving as the co-chair of the Human Rights Council (HRC) in TAIMUN XX alongside Ting Tsai. TAIMUN XX will be my ninth conference and my first time chairing. 

I began my Model UN journey as an anxious freshman. While speaking on the podium seemed initially difficult, I gave it a whirl and was amazed with the feeling of being able to construct a cohesive argument. Ever since then, I have always been immersed in the enthusiastic atmosphere I felt at conferences I attended.

 

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 major impact on the "real world," the problems we discuss are indeed real and  significant, affecting people all over the world. As a chair, I will try my best to help you guys understand these tangible implications of the topics at hand and build arguments upon that idea. It is because of this that I highly recommend reading the chair report before the conference as I have always found the reports to be extremely helpful in learning more about the topic and preparing for the conference. Do not hesitate to contact me if there are any questions or concerns that you have regarding the topic.

 

Aside from MUN and schoolwork, I enjoy watching Netflix, playing basketball and badminton. I also do karate and earned black belt in fifth grade. Wish you guys best of luck and I look forward to seeing you all in April!
