Secretary General
Andy Sofia, Class of 2022


Esteemed directors, distinguished student officers, passionate delegates, and guests:  

Welcome to SHASMUN IX! My name is Andy Sofia, and it is my pleasure to serve as your Executive Secretary General this year. My first SHASMUN inspired me to take action on global issues, and it sparked my passion for international relations and the program. Since then, I have had the opportunity to attend numerous conferences around the world, which helped me forge long-lasting friendships. This year I am fully committed to bringing my passion and experience to SHASMUN IX. No matter if you are a MUN newcomer or veteran, I hope that you leave SHASMUN with a willingness to combat injustices and a compassionate mindset. After what the world has experienced with COVID-19, I believe events like SHASMUN could contribute to instilling unity and trust.


I look forward to seeing all of you in November

Deputy Secretary General

Sherissa Wu , Class of 2022


Welcome to SHASMUN IX!  


My name is Sherissa Wu, and it is my honor to serve as one of your Deputy Secretaries Generals of the Executive Branch for this year’s conference. My Model UN journey started in the fifth grade, when I was part of the admin staff in SHASMUN’s Special Conference. Now, over five years and fifteen conferences later, I can confidently say that MUN is a program that inspires in all its participants a passion for global issues and a desire to find compromise in the construction of a better world. In light of recent events that have both shocked and deeply impacted the entire globe, the SHASMUN conference’s ability to unfailingly foster international collaboration and meaningful discussion has never been more timely and more essential. It is my hope that delegates, chairs, and directors will all emerge from the SHASMUN experience having learned rewarding lessons about themselves and about the larger crises we continue to face today.

Deputy Secretary General

Edward Huang, Class of 2022


Distinguished directors, honorable student officers and esteemed delegates, 


Welcome to SHASMUN IX! 


My name is Edward Huang, and I am a junior at Shanghai American School Pudong. Having attended the past five SHASMUNS – as a chair, delegate, and admin – I am honored to return and serve as a Deputy Secretary General of the Executive Branch. For many, including myself, SHASMUN has served as a stepping stone for personal growth: a place where new delegates find their voice, experienced delegates reignite their passion, and all are inspired. As a member of the secretariat, I promise to do everything in my power to uphold the level of constructiveness and professionalism that enables that to happen. 


I look forwards to meeting you all in November – where we will examine the relationship between history and current world issues, and scrutinize the “butterfly effects” plaguing our world. 


Once again, welcome to SHASMUN. 


If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at or the secretariat at 

Deputy Secretary General
Eva Yuan , Class of 2023


Esteemed directors, student officers, delegates, and guests,

Welcome to SHASMUN IX: The Butterfly Effect! My name is Eva Yuan, and I am honored to serve as one of your Deputy Secretaries-General this year. I have been a part of MUN for six years now. Though I initially joined as a shy, yet passionate, middle schooler, I can now proudly reflect upon my growth within this program. As an admin, delegate, and chair, SHASMUN especially has aided me in discovering a voice with which to advocate, both for myself, and for others. I am grateful to have been served by the MUN community, and I hope to serve the community in return.

During a time seemingly defined by climate anxiety, international hostility, and the tireless fight to secure human rights, MUN focuses on hope. While these issues continue in the world around us, in the committees of SHASMUN IX, delegates will work towards solutions. 

I look forward to seeing you all in November!
