It is an immense honour and privilege for me, as well as for my Co-chair Hassan Imran, to be chairing the United Nations Human Rights Council at this year's ACMUN. UNHCR is unique in the sense that it discusses topics/issues which are not only pertinent but prevalent all around the globe, therefore, each country enjoys a pictorial position in debate. The topics that we have chosen for this committee follow suit.
I expect all of you to be thoroughly researched on both topics; you should be able to demonstrate your knowledge and effectively propound your countries views. However, animated and aggressive speeches won't cut the cake. Interacting with your fellow delegates and reasoning with them, as opposed to enforcing your own views, is characteristic of a good diplomat.
Cue the cliche: MUN's are not just about getting a shiny new addition to your trophy cabinet although it is a pretty cool shield). MUN's are an opportunity to develop yourself as a person and form friendships that will outlast any accolade you could possibly get. Also, please note that despite my deep voice and unfathomable love for little children, I am not Santa Claus; I won't be showering everyone with what they desire i.e. awards. What I can promise are: incessant lame jokes, and *drumroll* regular entertainment sessions. Please be prepared for the entertainment sessions so we don't end up sitting like distant relatives at funerals.
Now that you have managed to read through all of that and still happen to choose this committee then you must really be really desperate for an award.
P.S. If you want brownie points you will have to feed me legitimate brownies; i like the ones with chocolate chips/ice cream.
P.P.S I also love Aylanto-just putting it out there. (Joint note of hassan imran and mohydin)
