Greetings delegates. It gives me immense honor to serve as the Charge D’Affaires at this year’s ACMUN along with serving as the Committee Chair of SOCHUM. I have won and taken part in various national and international MUNs, which include LUMUN and HMUN Boston. Yet from all of these MUNs I have learned that Model United Nations are different than other public speaking competitions; they are not about your speaking skills and knowledge, but the way you conduct yourself and deal with people. They test all of your capabilities in one way or another and that is what we aim to achieve at ACMUN IX. I hope each one of you leave the grounds of Aitchison with fond memories and new lessons that you have learnt. Hope to see you all this September!
