It is my honour to serve as your President and Director General for the 2022 University of Alberta High School Model United Nations (HSMUN).
Throughout high school, I became passionate about Model United Nations after participating in HSMUN for three years as a delegate on the Security Councils. HSMUN provided me with an educational opportunity that helped me develop a sense of global citizenship and confidence in public speaking, diplomacy, and policy creation. Once beginning my studies at the University of Alberta, I volunteered as a Foreign Policy Advisor for HSMUN 2020 and served as the Under Secretary General of Dais for HSMUN 2021. In each role, I was appreciative of the opportunity to plan and carry out a meaningful and valuable Model United Nations conference for hundreds of high school students from across Alberta. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, I was steadfast in my dedication and commitment to creating an enjoyable and educational experience for delegates through a virtual format.
This year, I look forward to planning, organizing, and leading an innovative and engaging conference with new committees, topics, press activities, and other surprises. I have confidence that the HSMUN 2022 Secretariat and volunteers will deliver one of the most memorable HSMUN conferences yet!
Best wishes for the year ahead. I look forward to seeing each of you in February!
President & Director General, HSMUN 2022
