Chloe Hui (SAS Pudong)
Welcome to SHASMUN IX! My name is Chloe Hui and it is my honor to serve as your president in the Human Rights Council. I first started my MUN career in 6th grade and since then, I’ve had the pleasure of attending 15 conference both regionally and internationally. The MUN community holds an important place in my heart as it is a place where delegates are able to invoke positive changes in our world while creating lifelong friendships. Along with Aileen and Sophia, I hope to create an encouraging atmosphere that makes positive and constructive debate possible. With that being said, I wish you all the very best and I’m looking forward to meeting all of you in November!
Sophia Roehr (YCIS PX)
My name is Sophia and I’m delighted to be serving as your chair at SHASMUN IX. I started my MUN career at SHASMUN V as a delegate in the Environment Commission. I distinctly remember the support that my chairs and fellow delegates gave me at that conference. It was these chairs and delegates that inspired me to continue to engage in MUN. Returning to SHASMUN as a Student Officer, I hope I can help create a similar atmosphere: sparking first-time delegates’ interest in MUN while encouraging others to further develop their skills. Whether you challenge yourself to make Points of Information, improve your speech writing technique, or make good friends, I hope all of you walk away from SHASMUN IX having grown from the experience.
I am looking forward to meeting you in November!
