Jasmine Huang, Class of 2022
Distinguished directors, student officers, and delegates,
I am confident that the majority, if not all of us gather at SHASMUN to pursue our passion for global issues and learn to become global citizens. Through discussing some of the world’s most pressing issues and debating realistic solutions, we step out of our comfort zones and societal bubbles to realize that we should and can use our privilege of being in such a safe and resourceful environment to make a positive impact in the world. Upon forming of the desire to make a difference in the world, we begin to embark on our journey of global citizenship.
My name is Celine Wang and it is my utmost honor to take part of this journey as your Administrative Secretary General of SHASMUN IX “The Butterfly Effect”. SHASMUN has witnessed my growth from a page to now one of the Secretaries General, and each year, it continues to uphold its nurturing yet diplomatic environment to foster an unparalleled experience of everlasting bonds and memories for its participants. I am certain that this year will be no different.
In this unique, history changing, period of time, I look forward for us to meet this November — to analyze the role of the butterfly effect in issues devastating countless people before us and prevent history from repeating itself. Welcome to SHASMUN IX!
Honorable directors, chairs, delegates, and staff:
Welcome to SHASMUN IX! I am Jasmine Huang and I have the honour of serving as your Chief Administrative Officer this year. Personally, SHASMUN has helped me grow into a confident and passionate speaker, as well as a global citizen. SHASMUN fosters both growth and learning for new and experienced delegates. It is a place to discuss and work together with other passionate global citizens to solve pressing issues. Together with the rest of the administrative team, we will work hard to ensure that SHASMUN is a memorable experience for all participants. I am excited to see you all at SHASMUN IX!
Estelle Denker, Class of 2024
Distinguished directors, student officers, delegates, and guests:
Welcome to SHASMUN IX. My name is Estelle Denker and it is my utmost honor to serve as one of the administrative officers at SHASMUN IX. It has been an honor of attending several SHASMUNs and other conferences both locally and internationally in the MUN community. My MUN career started right here at SHASMUN VII as a delegate. I was welcomed into a warm, inclusive, and energetic committee room. My first conference opened my eyes to not only a world of politics and debate but also a sense of community where delegates encouraged each other. My most recent conference was filled with active debate and passionate delegates eager to take the floor. COVID-19 placed some restrictions on SHASMUN but along with my fellow secretariat members we are pleased to say that we have been able to uphold the high standard of past SHASMUNs. So, whether you are an experienced delegate or just starting your MUN path I hope SHASMUN will be a conference full of active debate, inclusiveness, and a filled with growth. Once again, welcome to SHASMUN IX and I look forward to meeting and serving you all in November!

Welcome to SHASMUN IX! My name is Ning Ning Thor, and it is my honor to serve as one of your administrative officers.

As as a member of the secretariat, I assure you that, regardless of if this is your first or fifth attendance at our conferences, this conference will not only run smoothly but also create memorable experiences, forge new friendships, and help us all tackle the challenges we face. I look forward to meeting you all at SHASMUN IX in the fall!
