Conference Aides

GENERAL AIDES 

Hope Salim

Hope recently graduated with a major in psychology and a minor in international studies. She volunteered at HSMUN for the last two years and just had to come back for a third time! She is passionate about dance and has been performing since she was four years old. Her favourite things to do in her spare time are watch Netflix and bake shortbread cookies. She has her fingers crossed that HSMUN can be (safely) in person this year!

David Mayhew

David is a first year economics student with a love for US politics and exploring political extremism. This is David’s 2rd year at HSMUN and 1st year as a volunteer, and he looks forward to making HSMUN 2021 the best one yet. David loves volunteering for any number of causes, from environmental causes to community schools and churches. When he is not found reading a needlessly long political twitter thread, David can be seen studying chess and finding riddles. 

Sebastian Gingerich 

Sebastian is a first-year arts student with plans to pursue studies in commerce and finance. After spending three years as a delegate in high school, he is looking forward to his first year as a volunteer and hopes to provide everyone with the same in-depth experience he had. Sebastian spent many years as a competitive swimmer and still partakes in the sport. Other than swimming, he enjoys reading non-fiction books about real estate, economics, and finance. He is super excited for HSMUN 2021, whether it is online or not!

Tyson Attia

Tyson is a third year science student with a major in Biological sciences and a minor in Psychology. This will be Tysons fourth year with HSMUN and third year as a volunteer. Tyson started off as a delegate of Greece in WHO, and is excited to continue his involvement with HSMUN.

He hopes everyone will enjoy the conference and will do whatever he can to make it as enjoyable as possible.

Besides being a huge MUN nerd Rian is also a fanatic for history, music, & cows (ask her about her ceramic cow collection)! When she’s not playing Among Us or Minecraft you’ll find Rian doing pretty much anything but her homework, she especially likes watching comedy specials, baking cakes during Zoom calls, and spending way too much time on Twitter. Rian is super excited for HSMUN 2021 and can’t wait to meet everyone!

 

Manveer Chauhan
