I am Simran Kawatra, a prospective candidate for the position of Chair at the upcoming WIMUN in Geneva, where I intend to have a fantastic learning experience and further my intentions of becoming a true global citizen.
I have been a top notch student throughout my academic career, securing a position amongst the first three in my class every year.I have also won certificate of distinction at various international benchmark tests and gold/silver medals for Math, Science and English Olympiads.
Communication and leadership skills:
I have been elected as the student council for the past three consecutive years
Recently, I have been elected as the Vice-President Personal Relations of my school’s Gavel Club because of my exceptional communication skills.
My desire to become a global citizen led me to participate in the World Scholar’s Cup held in Amsterdam, where I won five gold medals in various categories, including, individual and group debate, collaborative writing, etc. This not only exemplifies my knowledge, presence of mind but also my strong ability to work in a team. I have organised and conducted various assemblies at the school level.
In order to make meaningful contributions to the community, I have always participated in several social welfare activities.
I have played an active role in recycling campaigns held in my school, school fund raisers, donations and other charitable events.
Other relevant matters:
My hobbies are reading, art and craft and playing lawn tennis. I have won several prizes for art competitions held in my school. A cover page designed by me was featured as the cover page of MeKids- a popular magazine for young kids in the Middle East. I was born on 22 August,2006, in India. I hold an Indian passport and have a resident visa for the Sultanate of Oman. I am currently studying in grade 8, Indian School Al Ghubra, Muscat.
Why should you be elected?
A UN official should not only be a good leader but should have a considerable command and authority to be able to maintain order at all times. I feel I absolutely befit the role of a chair as I have time and again been entrusted with both, work and positions, that require a person to be sincere, dedicated, organised and responsible at all times. I was elected to the position of Student Council three times consecutively. It is the highest position a child of my age can hold at the class level in my school and requires one to be the best in all walks of school life. More recently, I was elected by popular vote, to the position of Vice-President Public Relations in my school Gavel Club. I think it speaks volumes about my communication skills. Given an opportunity, I think I will be able to do full justice to the role of a Chair.
Someone once said ,“Diplomacy is the art of letting someone else have YOUR way.” However, I see things differently.
My path to diplomacy is built on the following principles - persuasive, articulate, tactful yet humble.
My name is Rohit Vivek and this is all about me:
Being an avid debater, I have participated in numerous debate competitions like Gulf Debates (awarded best speaker), World Scholars Cup - Tournament of Champions at Yale(ranked 6th globally as an individual and 1st as a team.), Dubai Debate League (won first prize)...to name a few. These thought provoking debates not only helped me critically analyze information on the spot, but also helped me gain the skill of rapidly integrating information into persuasive arguments.
I also have a passion for social outreach initiatives and have always wanted to make changes in the world. Hence, I was a panelist at the Generation Global conference (initiated by Tony Blair) where, alongside students from other countries, I discussed social issues and setbacks and also discussed methods of eradicating them.
Finally, I have participated in many robotics competitions, where my team and I came up with robots that we could integrate into the lives of people to make them easier. This gives me a strong background in technology. For example, we made a prototype of a robot that could clean windows of skyscrapers, to prevent risk of human death.
Why should you be elected?
I believe in the power of diplomacy to truly change the world. Over the last many years, I have been active in espousing social causes through the medium of discussions and debates.
I should be selected for two reasons - firstly, I debate at quite a high standard - hence would be able to hold the position that I am applying for and with these oratory skills, can persuade others to endorse my view. On top of this, I have a passion for computer science and technology - hence I know the ins and outs of its usage. I can think of ideas to integrate technology into industries for their advancement and can convince people to adopt technological practices in their lives.
My name is Pooja Ashokan, and reside in Muscat (Oman). I study in Grade 11 at the Indian school Al Ghubra.
I am a zealous, industrious and tenacious individual, who not only believes in hard work but also knows the importance of staying grounded and being empathetic. I am an avid reader, a good orator and an individual with an exceptionally high EQ. The ability to listen and discern finer points enables me to have a good understanding of human nature and thus a great capacity towards social cooperation. Being positive at all times, and self-motivated, I believe that every day is a new beginning and together we can make a difference. Organising and proper time management is my forte, as I have displayed, many a time during my tenure as a student council member.
I am a scholar student and have achieved many laurels at my school. I have been placed first in many a debate, elocution, and extempore competitions over the years. I have obtained the 2nd position internationally in the IEO and have had my story published in a magazine after having won third position in a literary competition. I am also the recipient of the CV Raman Award for excellence in Science. I am the recipient of gold and silver medals obtained at various Olympiads like the NCO, NSO and the IEO. I have held positions of responsibility, by being elected as a student council member for two consecutive year. I have participated in MUN for the past 2 years and am the recipient of the Diplomacy Award. I have attended the Youth Leadership Training workshop by the John Maxwell Team in 2017. I believe that leadership is not a position or a title, it is action and example.
Why should you be elected?
Hi, I am Pooja Ashokan, studying in Grade 11, at Indian School Al Ghubra. I would like to apply for an UNO position and hope to win your votes. I have participated in MUN for 2 years and have been the recipient of the Diplomacy Award. I have also held positions of responsibility, having been elected as Student Council member for 2 consecutive years.
Apart from being academically sound, I am a powerful orator and have won many an award in debates, elocutions and extempore competitions. I am an avid reader, but at the same time enjoy dance and music. Being patient and possessing the ability to listen, is a quality, I am told often that I have in plenty. I do believe- in a world hell-bent on voicing their opinions, listening is an art. Being positive at all times, and self-motivated, I believe that every day is a new beginning and together we can make a difference. Organizing and proper time management is my forte, as I have displayed, many a time during my tenure as a student council member.
As a bureau member of the UNO, I do see myself contributing effectively by incorporating new ideas that will breathe freshness into its functioning. In a forum, where people of varying cultures, nationalities meet vying with each other, selecting a sensible, mature and rational leader is of utmost importance. With the abilities that I possess, I am sure that if selected, I shall not disappoint.
To summarise, I would like to assure you that, I hope to inspire others to Dream more, Do more and Be more.
