Ethan Zhou (DCB)
Honorable directors, fellow student officers, distinguished guests, and most esteemed delegates, welcome to SHASMUN IX!
My name is Ethan Zhou and I am a junior at Dulwich College Beijing. It is my utmost honor to be serving as President of the Economic and Social Council. Throughout the past three years, I have taken part in 11 MUN conferences across China as delegate, chair, and conference manager. Three years ago, I was a wide-eyed, hesitant debater that witnessed the magical atmosphere of SHASMUN. My three SHASMUN conferences shaped my understanding of the political realm and inspired me to see the value of diplomacy. Returning as a student officer at the forthcoming SHASMUN, I wish to facilitate a professional and dynamic environment for all delegates, so that each and every speech leads to a greater cause. My ambition is to foster students to achieve their full potential, as well as to become cosmopolitan and charitable global citizens. I look forward to meeting you all in November, when we will devote every flap of a butterfly wing to positive change in the world.
I look forward to working with you all.
Chris Li (SAS Pudong)
Honorable directors, esteemed students officers, and distinguished delegates, welcome! My name is Chris Li and I am currently a junior studying at Shanghai American School Pudong. I am honored and delighted to be serving as one of your deputy presidents of the Economic and Social Council, a committee that I have become increasingly passionate about. For the past four years, MUN has had a constant impact on my life. I remember how paging at SHASMUN V, my first conference, drew me into the complex yet fascinating workings of MUN conferences. I remember how my fellow delegates and cordial chairs encouraged me and sparked my passion in MUN. I remember how MUN has helped me develop into the well-spoken individual I am today. At SHASMUN IX, I wish to provide for you the same fruitful and enjoyable experiences that my past chairs have given me. But until then, I hope everyone stays safe and remains just as excited about this conference as I am. I look forward to working with you all at the upcoming SHASMUN!
