Yilin Chen (SASPD)


Hello delegates and esteemed guests! I am Yilin Chen, currently a junior in SAS Pudong. I am truly delighted and honored to serve as the President Chair for the Economic and Social Council. In the past 4 years in MUN, I have attended 7 MUN conferences, been to almost every type of committee, and have gained experience in virtual conferences. Although SHASMUN X will be a virtual conference, I want to provide delegates a unique and fruitful experience that is not second to that of a non virtual one. My goals as a chair are to combat the difficulties that may be present in online communication by managing committee time productively and establishing a friendly and inclusive atmosphere within the committee. I am excited to share and hear about your thoughts on the concerning social and economic issues that arise from our rapidly developing modern society!
