My name is JinWon Ok, and I am a Senior attending Tianjin International School. It is my utmost pleasure to serve you as the head president of the Advisory Panel in TIANMUN XI.
I know how nervous, inexperienced advisors will feel when it comes to a place where you need to associate with new people because I had the same experience during my first conference. I was so nervous during the first conference that I made only 1 speech and 2 POIs. However, I do not want you to experience the same thing I have experienced. I want to make this conference memorable and exciting for the participating advisors this year.
Thus, do not get scared to make speeches and ask POIs. Believe in yourself, do what you have prepared, and speak out your thoughts. As the head chair, I will do my best and support you so that you can make a great memory during the conference.
See you at the conference!
Hello! This is Gio Kim, currently a rising senior attending Yantai Huasheng International School. Advisory panel, AP, is a special committee where advisors get to interact and draft a cohesive resolution paper. As I, also once a delegate, completely understand how and what inexperienced delegates feel when the house moves directly onto the debate, I hope our presence as chairs does help those struggling delegates.
Personally, MUN means a lot to me – it is more than a place for me to debate upon global issues and win an award. Rather, MUN has been a pedestal for my growth. Starting my MUN career in TIANMUN as a freshman, MUN provided me with opportunities for me to step out of my comfort zone and learn. Keep in mind – continue to seek the true meaning of becoming a global citizen as a MUNer.
See you soon!
My name is Yerin Lee, currently a senior attending Yantai Huasheng International School. It is my utmost pleasure and honor to serve you as the deputy chair of the Advisory Panel!
During my first experience as a delegate, I was petrified speaking in front of people asking myself what if I say the wrong thing or didn’t even understand a thing.
Well, to tell you the result, I did mess up and I messed up hard. However, overtime, I got used to going up to present my stance and answer to any POIs. Model United Nations is a great experience for all to grow their confidence or interact with another in a diplomatic way. Don’t be afraid to speak up since everyone messes up in their first try as we are all here for a learning and joyful journey.
I look forward to meeting you all at Tianmun XI!
