Why should you be elected?
I have been doing Model United Nations since 9th grade, serving three different officer and leadership positions throughout my MUN career. I quickly grew passionate about the club, attending five conferences before my second semester of freshman year. Throughout my life, I had always searched for an activity that I could be good at and build passion for, and luckily, I found MUN. Not only did I love the act of preparation and debate itself, I was actually good at it! In my freshman year alone, I won one Best Delegate award (SMUN Curitiba), two Honorable Mentions (TBSRJMUN and SPMUN), and one verbal commendation (BRAMUN). Being a delegate was always fun, but I knew I would feel more comfortable chairing. In my sophomore year of high school, after moving to Paris, I was called last-minute to chair the ECOSOC in the American School of Paris’ conference (PAMUN). After this first experience, I began to apply to chair at other conferences. I went on to chair Haileybury Model United Nations’ GA3 and won the Best Chair award, nominated and voted on by faculty advisors attending the conference. Later that year, I mentored the American School of Paris’ middle school conference (PACMUN) and acted as head chair of the Security Council. I continued attending other conferences as a delegate in 10th grade as well, collecting one Best Delegate (LMUNA) and one Honorable Mention (MEP). My junior and senior years have been fairly successful as well, after again moving to Bronxville High School after 10th grade. In 11th grade, I attended Princeton Model United Nations for the first time and collected an Outstanding Delegate award in the ICC. Not long after that, I chaired Bronxville High School’s first internal MUN conference. Most significant in my MUN experience, though, has been my election to leadership of the club. I have been serving as Secretary-General and President of BXVMUN since September, and although the workload is heavy as the club contains over 40 members, I truly and thoroughly enjoy organising conference trips, helping delegates one-on-one, and helping to plan the second edition of the Bronxville Model United Nations Conference. I believe I am qualified to be an officer at WIMUN 2020 because Model United Nations is not only a hobby or a club at school, it is a true passion to me.
Hello!! My name is Inès Saad Munchenbach, and I am incredibly excited to be attending WIMUN 2020! I believe I was destined to do MUN — I am half-French, half-Pakistani, and a Brazilian citizen (and MUN is, in fact, part of my last name). Currently in my senior year at Bronxville High School, I serve as Secretary-General of the BXVMUN club and President of the Human Rights Coalition. When I’m not cramming for my APs or suffering in my club workload, you can find me playing bass, writing poems or short stories, or (most of the time) doing nothing at all. I’m excited to meet you all at the upcoming conference!

I believe a country’s future depends on the growth of its people and growth comes from the freedom of thought, speech and expression of its people. We all are accountable for what is happening all around the world and our very own ecosystems. We can be the change, that one step that leads us to a better world, a safer world, a healthier world; as each and every one of us, are the youth of our countries and we are who will bring about that change. As one such youth, passionate about the future of my country and of the world, I choose to look at the bad with the good. It’s easy to criticize but difficult to accept we are at fault and do something about it constructively. The UN is one of the reasons why the world is still largely united and has common goals towards a better future. The UN is the foundation on which that future will be better for all of us no matter what region we belong to, with its tireless efforts and voice of reason. It would be an honor to represent such a distinguished body of a cause greater than us, yet for us. As a student I have had the opportunity to represent my peers and my school on various public platforms be it Commerce related business events where I recently won 2nd place, or the World Scholars Cup, or numerous school debates, I have had the privilege and freedom of representing my peers and my thoughts. Climate change, Women’s rights, Child trafficking, Malnutrition, Children in particular, Nuclear Disarmament are some of the issues I feel strongly about. I give my all in everything I do – whether it is as striker of my U15 football team or when representing my school at Yale University for the World Scholar’s Cup, but it is also extremely important to me to bridge the gap between people with disagreements so that we can work together for the collective good. It is these qualities that I bring to the table and hope to utilize at WIMUN 2020.
I am student of grade 8 with many disparate passions: public speaking, academics, debates, business competitions, you name it. Excellence is something I strive for. But these are merely means to an end, an end which involves making a difference in the causes that I care deeply about – environmental preservation, women’s rights, and the health and safety of youth like me across the globe. In India, where I come from, gender inequality, women’s safety and infant mortality rates are real issues and I see it upfront on a daily basis. The world is our oyster and I believe we must contribute in a small positive way to make a change for the better. It is our responsibility as citizens of the World.
