BEIMUN XXIX Leadership Team
Secretary General – Eric Xie
Welcome to BEIMUN XXIX and BEIMUN China!
My name is Eric Xie, and it is an honor to serve as your Secretary General for the twenty-ninth annual Beijing Model United Nations conference along with our brand new BEIMUN China! I am a current high school senior attending the International School of Beijing, and this will be my sixth year in the MUN program.
My MUN journey began back in middle school, where I hoped to improve my public speaking skills and learn about diplomacy. After six years in MUN, I not only achieved these goals but also gained a better understanding of the program. MUN isn’t just speech and debate but rather about how students from various backgrounds cooperate to overcome the modern-day issues that threaten global society today and build a resilient international community.
I hope that all participants–delegates, admins, chairs, and directors–will recognize the importance of MUN and the responsibilities every individual must uphold as we approach the upcoming conferences.
I’m thrilled to see you all in both of our upcoming conferences!
Deputy Secretary General – Young Soo Kim
My name is Young Soo Kim, and it is my utmost pleasure to serve as a member of the BEIMUN secretariat as your Deputy Secretary General. As a high school senior at the International School of Beijing, this will be my sixth year involved in the ISB Model United Nations program.
My career in MUN began in middle school, initially because I wanted to improve my public speaking skills as well as my knowledge of the world around me. Not only have these goals been realized, but MUN has also introduced me to students from all four corners of the globe, and has led me to develop my strong political identity. The overwhelmingly rewarding experiences I’ve had throughout my MUN journey compel me to deliver a meaningful conference experience for all participants. In order to do so, I stand firm in my belief that each participant must approach our conferences with the deepest understandings and initiative to address the issues at hand.
Whether these sessions of BEIMUN are just another conference in a path that extends far ahead, or they’re a bittersweet end to your journey through high school MUN, I sincerely hope that they remain as treasured memories for each and every one of you. Here’s to BEIMUN!
Deputy Secretary General – Si In Park
My name is Si In Park. It is a great honor to serve as your Deputy Secretary General for BEIMUN China and BEIMUN XXIX. I am currently a high school senior student at the International School of Beijing and the sixth year of participating in our school’s MUN program.
I believe that high school is the most cherished time in our life and the most impactful phase of our life. When many found MUN as a diplomatic program for assertive and political students, I found MUN as a comfort zone to speak up. My first conference may have been like stepping into a minefield where anyone can attack me with unpredictable POIs. After figuring out everyone was on the same minefield and even a possible inexplosive minefield, my thoughts regarding MUN changed. The program became a place where I could speak up for what I believe is right and have others question and persuade me that there are better solutions. Through MUN, I have learned how to collaborate with others, understand other perspectives, think globally and critically, which helped me to become a step closer towards becoming a better individual. I hope all the time spent in BEIMUN sessions is worthwhile and a reflective experience for all. I look forward to meeting everyone at the conference :)
Deputy Secretary General – Shane Lim
Welcome all participants to BEIMUN China and BEIMUN XXIX!
My name is Shane Lim, and it is my greatest pleasure to serve as a member of the secretariat for the twenty-ninth Beijing Model United Nations conference. I am currently a high school senior at the International School of Beijing.
With an avid interest in global issues and diplomacy, I first joined MUN in middle school. I also wanted to improve my public speaking skills through the program. After five years and now in my sixth, I realized MUN is a hub for interaction: where great minds - with different knowledge, perspectives, and experiences - come together to help resolve the issues threatening our global society ultimately. At the conference, I wish all participants will make significant efforts to have constructive debates and progress.
I hope all participants are as excited as I am for BEIMUN China and BEIMUN XXIX. I look forward to meeting you all there.
Deputy Secretary General – Ray Fang
Dear participants of BEIMUN China and BEIMUN XXIX,
My name is Ray Fang, and I am honoured to serve as your deputy Secretary General for the twenty-ninth Beijing Model United Nations and its complimentary BEIMUN China conference. I am currently a junior at the International School of Beijing, and my fifth year participating in MUN.
I was convinced to join MUN in 7th grade by my English teacher after I’ve shown some interest in current events and politics in class. However, public speaking was something that daunted me back then, so I was quite hesitant regarding whether to participate in the club or not. Yet, in my first ever MUN conference, I’ve received overwhelming support from my friendly and professional student officers and fellow delegates, which undoubtedly sparked my passion for MUN that still remains today.
It will be my greatest honour if I may spread my passion for MUN to other delegates attending BEIMUN, especially to the newer delegates. I will strive to create a professional and constructive atmosphere in our conferences, that will create a platform for delegates to comfortably and freely express their profound insights and ideas on impactful global issues. I look forward to meeting you all in the near future.
Head Admin – Evan Lou
To all participants attending BEIMUN,
Welcome! My name is Evan Lou, and it is an honour to be serving as one of the head admins for the upcoming BEIMUN conferences. I am currently a senior at the International School of Beijing, and my fifth year being involved in the MUN program here at ISB.
I first heard of Model United Nations through a school announcement in 8th grade convincing students to join the program. When I saw that the announcement had mentioned public speaking, I was doubtful as I had a very reserved personality and hadn’t done much public speaking in the past. Ultimately, I ended up joining due to the fact that I had a growing interest in global politics and current events (as much of us do in 8th grade) and decided to give it a try. Looking back after 5 years, I’ve learned that MUN isn’t just about public speaking and debate, but also about opening yourself to a wide range of perspectives on different issues, making friends, and most importantly, having fun.
Whether or not you are attending BEIMUN for the reasons listed above, we hope that this conference can provide you with the utmost support and backing to help you achieve your goals and objectives for MUN as a whole. I look forward to meeting all of you in the upcoming conferences.
Head Admin – Renee Kuo
Welcome all participants to BEIMUN!
My name is Renee Kuo, and it is my pleasure to serve as one of your head admins for the twenty-ninth annual Beijing Model United Nations conference and BEIMUN China. As a junior at the International School of Beijing, this is my fourth year being involved in MUN.
I joined MUN in middle school, hoping to improve my public speaking skills and develop an awareness of current events. After three years, I realised that MUN is much more than just speech and debate. Rather, MUN is about perspective. Through research, collaboration, and constructive debate, we gain an understanding of different viewpoints and learn to negotiate for shared solutions.
As much as MUN is about speaking, it is also about listening. I truly hope that all participants can approach BEIMUN with an open mind and strive to understand various perspectives. I'm so excited to meet you all!
