GA6 (Legal Council)
Hello, delegates! My name is Kyra Dean, a current sophomore at Hsinchu International School. It is with utmost pleasure to be serving as your head chair in General Assembly 6 for this year’s TAIMUN XX conference. I have been participating in MUN since the seventh grade and TAIMUN XX will be my 14th conference. When I first joined MUN I was far from the debater I am today, I was not only very shy, but I also lacked the confidence for public speaking. But as time went on, I spoke up.
I am always very adamant in making sure my voice is heard; I make sure that my mind is spoken and that I am able to have a platform to engage my opinions and the discussion for solutions. In the first step to solving issues, it is vital to be aware and educated about the background of issues. This is what MUN is about and I feel MUN is a way for people at such a young age, like us, to contribute their voices to society.
As a chair, I want to make myself as approachable as possible, giving delegates every opportunity to ask me about the issue at hand. I want them to be able to ask whenever they need help and count on me to give them constructive feedback on their work. In order to bring about the highest quality of debate to the committee, I highly encourage all delegates to prepare background research and gather solid arguments to discuss. New delegates may feel shy to speak up at first because they are unsure of the debate procedure and their respective country stances, but I want to be the one to provide them with the confidence they need to approach the podium and voice their opinions.
With that being said, I truly cannot wait to see you all at TAIMUN XX this April!
My name is Ari Yong and I am a sophomore at Taipei American School and am esteemed to serve as the Deputy Chair in GA6 for this year’s TAIMUN. As someone who just recently started in 9th grade, I believe that this experience will be cherished and will further reinforce my abilities. I am privileged to participate in multiple conferences prior to this and am extremely excited to be Chair again despite the countless detriments the covid pandemic has brought. With previous participation in MUN, I was able to overcome many of the problems I originally possessed such as the lack of public speaking, cooperation, and leadership abilities. I hope that with TAIMUN, delegates alike would be able to gain such abilities and be further motivated to pursue greater excellence in MUN. This environment is one that endorses growth, and everyone including me wants people to develop their abilities, so don’t be hesitant to talk to me at any time about anything.
I believe that making a mistake is not a problem, but refusing to climb up is. Therefore, it is important to acknowledge one's willingness to overcome failure and their desire to achieve great heights. I hope that, as a chair, I can assist people to achieve such goals but also witness growth within every delegate and myself. I believe that the most important thing is not how well the speeches are or how insightful the resolution is, but it is the growth everyone develops even during such a short time span. That sense of growth is what makes MUN special because collaboration and communication will sometimes even lead to friendship, as it did for me. I hope that everyone will enjoy their time at TAIMUN, but I also intend to witness and undergo developments in their ability to collaborate, gain confidence, and overcome challenges. Let’s all make TAIMUN XX the greatest conference yet!
