UN Development Program 

Head Chair

Jenny Wu


Greetings delegates!

My name is Jenny Wu, a sophomore studying at Hsinchu County American School. It is my utmost honour to serve as your Head Chair this year at TAIMUN XXII. This conference will mark my thirteenth, and it will be my second time chairing.

I vividly recall being a timid delegate who offered only one point of information and a speech during my first conference in HSINMUN 2021. Ever since then, not only has MUN provided valuable practice for developing public speaking, debate, and socializing skills, but it has also taught me global awareness, diplomatic finesse, and critical thinking I was not previously exposed to. Despite knowing my amendments and speeches were far from perfect during my second conference, I discovered a newfound passion for debating. It was there, in settings that were either excessively formidable or painstakingly tranquil, that I encouraged myself to step up, express my ideas, and make friends. Hence, MUN has been a significant contributor to my extroverted nature. I strongly encourage both new and experienced delegates to come prepared with thorough research done prior to their respective topics.

Outside of MUN, you may find me singing to Taylor Swift, strumming my guitar, binge-watching Netflix, or reading novels. Other than that, I'd most likely be taking too many notes for AP World History or starting a new page of my novel that I know I would never finish.

Whether it's related to MUN or any other topic you'd like to discuss, please don't hesitate to approach me! With great optimism, I hope TAIMUN XXII will bring you the same positive impact it brought me.

With that stated, I can't wait to meet you all in March!

Dear delegates, 


I am Curtis Shih, a current freshman from American School in Taichung, and it is my greatest pleasure to serve as your co-chair for the United Nations Development Programme.


I embarked on my MUN journey when I was in 7th grade, participating in a small club that some students in my school formed. During club meetings, we would draft resolutions, write opening speeches, and occasionally start up a mock debate. As a fellow club member during that time, I knew I had a passion for MUN in the future, thus leading to my choice of attending my first conference when I reached 8th grade. I participated in 3 conferences during 8th grade, which helped broaden my knowledge of politics, world events, and globalization. Not only that, but MUN has also been a pivotal part of my life, as it taught me skills such as diplomacy, critical thinking, and responsibility, which have all been impactful to my role as a student and myself.


I believe that MUN is a place where like-minded individuals can gather and collaborate, forming new friendships, and partnerships while tackling the problems of our ever-changing world. I would like to encourage new delegates to participate with a positive mindset that strives for growth and development while stepping out of their comfort zones whether that is socializing with other delegates or reaching a goal that they once set for themselves. For experienced delegates, utilize the power of mentorship, as that will make an impact on the journey of newer delegates.


Aside from attending MUN conferences, I enjoy learning new languages and indulging myself in music.


TAIMUN XXII will mark my 6th conference and 1st as a student officer and I am thrilled to be part of this year’s TAIMUN conference. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or if there's anything specific you would like to discuss. 


See you in March.

Deputy Chair

Curtis Shih
