Hey everyone, my name is Alisha and I am a first-year PPE student at LSE. I come from Indonesia but I have studied in the UK for four years. During this time, I have been a passionate member of the MUN society, participating in THIMUN-style inter-school conferences. I have also had the privilege to be Chairwoman of the MUN Society in my last year of sixth form. I am grateful for my MUN career so far: MUN has diversified the way I view global issues, training my ability to defend perspectives that I do not agree with. It has also empowered me to not only deconstruct these issues, but also craft viable solutions for them. After all, as the future generation, we will be artists of the future so MUN is good practice! Beyond academics, I love staying active, whether that is swimming, surfing or going to the gym (#FitnessIsMyPassion). When I am not having to do my philosophy readings or economics problem sets, I also enjoy watching football and listening to R&B and soul. It is a great honour to be serving you all as chair of the Third Committee of the General Assembly. I look forward to meeting you all and having discussions that are full of energy, thought and fresh perspectives!
Hi! My name is Anna, I am a first year undergraduate studying International Social and Public Policy at the LSE. I’m from China but I have been studying in the UK since year 9. I am passionate about international development, particularly in the area of inequality, education, and social inclusion. In my free time, I love cooking, traveling, and going to the gym. I am really excited to be charing for the first time and learning with you all. As an non-native English speaker, doing MUN pushed me outside of my comfort zone and helped me to develop confidence in public speaking - especially in improvisation. I applied to be a chair as I wish to help more people to get the amazing experience I’ve had in MUN. Don’t be too stressed about awards, treat the conference as a learning experience and just enjoy it! We are here to help you!
