DAISMUN Leadership Team

Secretary General — Jasmine Zhao

Greetings and welcome to DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021! 

 

My name is Jasmine Zhao, and it is my honor to serve as your Secretary-General for DAIS Model United Nations conferences 2020-2021. As a current senior at Dalian American International School, this will be my 4th year as a MUNer and my 3rd year as a member of the DAISMUN leadership team.

 

My MUN journey began back in 2018 when I was randomly assigned to take the Model United Nations course at my school. The course's strong standards for public speaking and debate terrified me, and I was significantly challenged during my first few conferences. However, as my passion grew and my experiences expanded, I was able to become a more confident person and make substantial improvements in many of my abilities as a MUNer. Model United Nations not only broadens individuals’ talents but also engages them in an international community and cultivates global citizens of the future.

 

I hope that all DAISMUN participants will enjoy working together with people from varied backgrounds to address global challenges and push themselves beyond their boundaries.

 

I am looking forward to a fruitful conference with you in the near future! See you at DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021.

Deputy Secretary General — Rita Yao

Greetings and welcome to DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021! 
 
My name is Rita Yao, and it is my honor to serve as your Deputy Secretary General for DAIS Model United Nations conferences 2021-2022. As a current senior at Dalian American International School, this will be my 3rd year as a MUNer and 2nd year as a member of the DAISMUN leadership team.
 
I started my MUN journey once I came to this school. Following the suggestions given by my friends, I joined the huge MUN community. The first conference I attended was SEOMUN; one of the largest conferences in Asia. I was frightened and scared to speak up. The conference was dull and dry, I gained nothing but delicious meals. Later that year, with more and more experience and practice, I became more professional and the process became more enjoyable for me. It shaped my interest in global issues and reminded me to be a global citizen.
 
I hope that all DAISMUN participants will enjoy the process and work cooperatively towards your goals. A MUN conference is not just about competition or debates, it has more fun waiting for you to discover.

I am looking forward to a fruitful conference with you in the near future! See you at DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021.

Executive Administrative Officer — Ein Sel

Welcome to DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021!

 

My name is Ein Sel, and it is my utmost pleasure to serve as your Executive Administrative Officer for the DAIS Model United Nations conference! I am currently a sophomore at the Dalian American International School, and the 2021-2022 year will be my second year in the MUN program, and my first year in the leadership team.

 

I first joined MUN back in my 8th-grade year and I was first intrigued and pulled into the course by my high school friends who talked about MUN’s great joys. Sadly, after the COVID-19 pandemic, my first year of MUN came to an abrupt end, but after entering my high school years, I picked up MUN once again. My experiences as a MUNer fascinated me and led to my love of the course. It may be hard at first, but the more MUN experiences you get, the less stressful and more exciting it gets. For all new MUNers, I feel you because I was in your shoes not too long ago. However, if you persevere and keep working hard, I promise MUN will only exponentially get better!

 

I hope that all delegates can enjoy their time at DAISMUN Fall Conference! Please take your time at DAISMUN to collaborate with other delegates to solve global issues and take it as an opportunity to learn new and diverse ideas.

 

I’m excited to see everyone at DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021! See you there!

Press & Publication Officer — Judy Zhou

Greetings and Welcome to you all to  DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021! 

 

My name is Judy Zhou, and it is my utmost honor and pleasure to serve as your Press & Publication Officer for DAIS Model United Nations conferences 2020-2021. As a current senior at Dalian American International School, this will be my third year as a MUNer and my first year as a member of the DAISMUN leadership team.

 

My MUN journey began back in 2019 when I accepted a friend's encouragement to attend the MUN course. This course necessitated a lot of public speaking and research abilities, which terrified me. After three years of MUN, I had mastered these abilities and a greater knowledge of the program.  MUN isn’t just an applied studies course. MUN is about students coming from various backgrounds cooperating together to construct solutions for major modern-day issues and building resilient international friendships along the way.

 

I hope that all participants–delegates, admins, chairs, and directors–will recognize the importance of MUN and the responsibilities each individual must uphold as we approach the upcoming conferences.

 

I am looking forward to a fruitful conference with you in the near future! See you at DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021.

Conference Service Officer — Chelsey Ding

Greetings to you all to DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021!

 

My name is Chelsey Ding, and it is an honor to serve as your Conference Service Officer for the DAIS Model United Nations conference! I am a current junior attending Dalian American International School, and this will be my 1st year serving in the DAISMUN Leadership Team.

My MUN journey began back in 2020 during my summer vacation. I joined the NHSDLC debate summer camp in Shanghai and found out how charming debating is. From then on, debating made me feel empowered and confident. Luckily, our school provides MUN classes for high school students. By joining MUN conferences, students are asked to do research regarding current issues in the world, along with writing solutions to solve those global problems. As a MUNner, I experienced nervousness, embarrassment, and of course, joyfulness. Model United Nations gives everyone a great chance to express themselves and is a hard-won stage for students to present themselves as well. Always remember that do not be afraid to make mistakes, because everyone starts as a new delegate! 

 

I hope everyone will learn from each other, continue to challenge themselves and enjoy the debates during DAISMUN! 

I’m thrilled to see you all! And do not forget to continue caring about things happening in the world!

Chief Financial Officer — Charmain Xu

Welcome to DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021!

My name is Charmain Xu and I am your Chief Financial Officer for our DAIS Model United Nations conferences 2021-2022! I am a current junior attending Dalian American International School. This will be my third year in the MUN program and my second year serving as an officer on the MUN Leadership Team.

As a young middle schooler, I remember seeing crowds of high school students who dressed formally and enjoyed the snacks provided in the hallways during the yearly DAISMUN Conference at my school. I later learned that they were a part of something called “MUN” and there was more to MUN than just having the privilege to skip class on a Friday. I was offered the opportunity to participate in the 2019 DAISMUN Conference as an 8th grader and without a doubt, I gladly took the challenge. Thus, I embarked on my MUN journey. My first conference was as confusing and nerve-wracking as it would be for any new delegates. I admired all the high school delegates and the professional persona every one of them presented. Undoubtedly, the magnetic force of that conference pulled me to pursue MUN for the rest of my high school career. Soon enough, MUN became a place of expression for me. It is a place to get over my fear of public speaking. It is a place for me to embrace a new role and address real-life issues beyond my student identity. 

DAISMUN will be a place for you to feel empowered as your responsibilities are now beyond just thinking about yourself.

I hope that this conference will be an enriching experience for your personal growth. But amidst all the seriousness, make sure to have fun, enjoy the process, and work with the people around you to create valuable memories for you to cherish in the future. 

I look forward to seeing you all at DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021! 

Chief of Internal Relations Officer — Meiiga Gao

Greetings, welcome to DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021! 

My name is Meiiga Gao, and it is an honor to serve as your chief of internal relations for the DAIS Model United Nations conference! I am a current high school junior here at Dalian American International School, and this will be my 3rd year in the MUN program and 1st year as a member of the DAISMUN leadership team. 

My MUN journey began back in middle school when I was first introduced to MUN by older students. Before I knew it, I was a high schooler in the MUN program. As a new MUNer, I faced many challenges when asked to speak at the podium and following conference procedures. Most of the time, I was a quiet delegate who was scared to speak up. However, I saw so many advanced delegates in my committees who push themselves to try the best they can. This inspired me to be a more confident speaker and delegate who can strive to make areas of growth throughout my MUN journey. Soon enough, I realized my passion for Modeled United Nations as I grew to become more experienced and more advanced. Model United Nations is so much more than just speaking at a podium, it is a community that allows you to try new things, reach out to your best abilities, and engage in thoughtful inputs with the people around you. The diversity in this program truly changed us as delegates and as citizens of this world.

I hope that all delegates in DAISMUN, regardless of your speaking abilities or whether you are an advanced delegate, can enjoy their experience here. Please remember that MUN is a place where you can step out of your comfort zone and always open to trying new things. It is an international community for all delegates to discover the true purpose of the United Nations. 

I am thrilled to have all delegates as members of the MUN program and look forward to seeing you at DAISMUN Fall Conference 2021!
