Humayra Bawany
Head Chair

Hi All! My name is Humayra, I am a first year History student and the LSE and I will be your head chair for the Human Rights Committee at LSE YouthMUN 2023. TeamLSE is my first ever experience with MUN with YouthMUN being my first ever chairing experience and I cannot wait to learn and grow with you all. I have had a longstanding interest in global affairs and the policy changes that affect day-to-day domestic affairs and love how MUN allows me to engage with that first-hand, which is something I am excited to share with you all. However, having just started MUN, I understand how nerve wracking the entire experience can be - the most important thing to remember is that is simply a chance to meet new people, improve your debating skills and most importantly have fun! Outside of MUN, I enjoy playing tennis, watching cheesy romcoms and reading (I am admittedly somewhat of a nerd). I look foward to meeting you all in March!

Sadiyya Khan
Vice Chair

My name is Sadiyya Khan and I am a first year Language, Culture and Society student at the LSE with ULMUN experience. Although this is my first time chairing I, like many of you, share a passion for debate and observing well thought out arguments; I hope that being a delegate will be a fun and insightful experience for you all as well! MUN is a practical and exciting form of discussion and the UNHRC in particular let's you talk about real social issues you tend to think of all the time, and put them into perspective. I have full confidence that this will be a great opportunity to make new friends and learn new skills and (most importantly) enjoy our time together. Beyond MUN I am a huge film/tv fan and a disney fanatic, barbie too. Can't wait to see you this March!
