Secretary General's Message of THAIMUN VIII

Delegates and Chairs, welcome to THAIMUN VIII!
My name is Grace Kim, a Year 13 student currently studying in Charter International School. It is with great honour and pleasure that I invite you to this prestigious conference as one of your Secretary-Generals.
As someone who first set foot in the world of Model United Nations right in the Security Council of this very conference, THAIMUN holds a special place in my heart. It was a conference which opened me to many cherished memories, lifelong friendships and new experiences. But most importantly, it was the conference which taught me the joy of debate, leading me to continue to be an MUNer for the entirety of my highschool career.
I strive to make this year’s THAIMUN the same. I hope that this conference will provide the grounds upon which rich discussions can take place on the complex issues that the world faces today. And I hope that you, too, will make invaluable memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
I look forward to hearing your sensible and pragmatic - yet creative - ideas and resolutions. See you all in March!

My name is Fai Tangkaravakoon and I am a Year 13 student at Bangkok Patana School. It brings me great joy and privilege to serve as your Secretary General, along with Grace, for the eighth annual THAIMUN conference!
I have been participating in Model UN for 3 years. Last year, I had the honour to serve as parliamentarian for THAIMUN VII, which was unfortunately cancelled. Although this year’s hybrid model will make THAIMUN VIII very different from the preceding conferences, I hope that I will be able to deliver an equally (or an even better) conference with the lessons I learnt and the planning that has carried forward to this year.
Additionally, I took part in my first special committee at THAIMUN. The fast pace and unique nature of the committee led to an exciting experience. Even better are the friends I made along the way. Overall, taking part in THAIMUN has generated many amazing memories, which I treasure and seek to replicate this year. I will do my best to ensure that this conference will allow new and seasoned delegates to grow, make new friends, and have lots of fun!
I look forward to welcoming everyone to the conference in March.
