Secretary General's Message of THAIMUN X
INTERNATIONAL school of BANGKOK
Hi, my name is Sara Landry (They/She), your resident vegan. I am an 11th grader at the International School of Bangkok, and I am incredibly delighted and honored to serve you as this year’s THAIMUN X Secretary-General. Although I will not be pulling a Lizz Truss, I would like to emphasize that I am a fighter and not a quitter.
I have participated in Model United Nations since my freshman year of high school and I am currently one of ISB’s parliamentarians. Unlike Jeremy, I am an underachiever and have unfortunately not been in 22 conferences yet. However, I have experience organizing a MUN conference as I was a Parliamentarian in IASAS MUN this year and have also chaired more conferences than I have delegated. During last year’s Thai MUN conference, I had the wonderful opportunity to delegate as a Reuters journalist for Press Corps and write scandalous articles about Jeremy being bad at math. I have also been taking part in ISB’s middle school MUN group to encourage the next generation to be globally minded. If I am not participating in MUN, you can catch me debating or reading.
On a serious note, from fruitful debates to such a tight-knit community, I have been so fortunate to find such a fantastic outlet to learn about current issues affecting us today. As we step into a covid-free world, I encourage all of you; delegates, chairs, and SMC members alike to use the skills that you have gained from Thai MUN and transfer them into the real world to make the world a better place, because our voices have power and can make change. I also hope all of you are able to find the same nurturing and empowering community that I have found at this year’s conference.
Lastly, I would like to thank Jeremy, Jonas, Jun, the chairs, and the SMC team for their incredible work in helping coordinate this conference. I am so lucky to have an amazing team to work with this year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or @sara.lpl on Instagram.
I cannot wait to meet you all in March. See you soon!!!
YOUNGHYUN (JEREMY) KIM
International community school bangkok
Hi everyone! My name is Jeremy(He/They) and I am a senior at International Community School. It is a great honor for me to be a part of the secretariat alongside Sara, Jonas and Jun for the tenth iteration of THAIMUN.
To offer a short history of my MUN career, I have been part of this amazing circuit for 4 years since my freshman year, having participated in a total of 22 conferences. I am also involved with the MUN club at my school, leading club meetings and in-house conferences. Let’s face it, I’m sure many of you know me as ‘the North Korean delegate who tried to nuke a meteor’ from last year’s THAIMUN GA.
Unlike Sara, I don’t have any experience organizing MUN conferences, and THAIMUN would be my first time running a conference. Despite this, I can guarantee you my team and I are putting our best efforts in to make this year’s THAIMUN a memorable and enjoyable experience! If you have any questions, or just want to have a chat, please feel free to contact me through email or Instagram DMs! (email@example.com, @korean.young)
To conclude, Model United Nations is a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals to solve relevant global problems. It’s a place where I learned lessons about diplomacy, global politics, and made great friends. I sincerely hope that through THAIMUN, you take part in these experiences firsthand, and that it empowers you on your journey, just like it has done for me.
I look forward to welcoming you all this March, and remember…
(I had to do it I’m so sorry)
