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 Secretary General Emeritus of SHASMUN IX “The Butterfly Effect”. SHASMUN has witnessed my growth from a page to a Secretary General, and now an emeritus role supporting and advising the team. Each and every year, SHASMUN continues to uphold its nurturing yet diplomatic environment to foster an unparalleled experience of everlasting bonds and memories for its participants and 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!

Vincent Wang, Class of 2025
Esteemed Directors, Distinguished Student Officers, and Enthusiastic Delegates and Guests,
Greetings to the Ninth Annual SHASMUN Conference! My name is Vincent Wang, and I’m honored to serve as one of your Administrative Officers at SHASMUN IX - “The Butterfly Effect”!
In modern days, we always strive to become ethical global citizens but find it difficult to search for opportunities that would allow us to demonstrate our traits and abilities. Well, allow me to introduce you to the SHASMUN Conference, a unique academic opportunity that fosters public speaking, individual research, diplomatic collaboration, and various other components into one event!
Indubitably, we live under a peculiar and frustrating circumstances. It is a shame that we cannot invite delegates from schools outside of Shanghai to join our discussions at SHASMUN IX! However, the values and principles of this conference shall not be relinquished, but only to be upheld and encouraged. I can assure you that, through the efforts of the passionate delegates and the distinguished executive and administrative branches, we will be able to construct a meaningful diplomatic discussion with the utmost professionalism!
Once again, warm welcome to SHASMUN IX! In November, I look forward to our gathering to examine the development of contemporary world issues, their effects and damages to citizens in specific countries, and how to most effectively resolve and bring about an end to them!
