Secretary General: Perrin Michalyshyn
Perrin is in his first year of Medicine, having studied at the UofA for his undergrad. This is his sixth year of involvement with HSMUN. While he did not study Political Science in university, he gained his political chops through his previous employment at the Alberta Legislature. In his spare time he enjoys playing and coaching soccer, reading the morning paper, and sliding across hardwood in socks. It is his job to make sure HSMUN 2018 is the best yet, so feel free to reach out if you have any bright ideas or improvements for the conference. See you in February!
Director General: Morgan Cselinacz
Morgan Cselinacz is a third year student completing a specialization in psychology. She has been a part of HSMUN for the past six years and is excited to take on the task of Director General this year. She has a passion for human rights issues, the planet, and, in an ideal world, world peace. Outside of HSMUN, Morgan enjoys spending her time embroiling herself in the passionate drama of municipal politics and spending time with her hedgehog, Knuckles the Hedgehog. She likes to think she is funny and might make a pun-ishable amount of jokes during the conference.
Under-Secretary General Finance: Melanie Liu
Melanie (Mel) is in her fourth year of her Bachelor of Commerce with Cooperative Education program at the University of Alberta, where she is majoring in Strategic Management and Organization and minoring in Finance. She has been involved with HSMUN for the past six years; two years as a high school delegate, two years as a Press mentor volunteer, and this is her second and final year as the USG-Finance. Mel’s hobbies include painting and drawing as well as traveling and discovering new places, sights, scenes, and experiences. She is also quite fond of quaint and aesthetically-pleasing cafés, binge-watching TV shows, and going out with friends and catching up over good food. As this is her last year with HSMUN, she is hoping that this one is a wonderful experience for not only the delegates, but also for the volunteers and the other executive members.
Under-Secretary General Press and Media: Sonia Grewal

Her hobbies include painting, travelling, reading and teaching. If you have any questions about the programs offered at the U of A, HSMUN, teaching or whatever let her know, she’d be happy to answer! Finally, she hopes that everyone has a fantastic time this year and is looking forward to the conference in February.
Under-Secretary General Foreign Policy Adviser: Abdel Tayem
Howdy-do! My name is Tayem and I am a second year BSc Psychology major here at the U of A. I study cognitive neuroscience and perform studies with Virtual Reality, and I love all things HSMUN! I’ve been a part of HSMUN for 4 years now (2 as a delegate, 1 as a volunteer, and this year as Exec!) and I have loved every second of it. I like to consider myself a meme connoisseur. Whenever I am not carefully curating memes, I spend my time listening to music, working on tech, volunteering at multiple student groups, debating social, economic, and political issues,and finally procrastinating (likely a byproduct of curating memes so regularly). Feel free to come up to me at any time during the conference and talk to me about any of the topics above or frankly anything else! I love to listen, and I wish you all an absolutely amazing HSMUN 2018!
