MEET THE TEAM
Esteemed delegates, chairs and advisors,
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Youth Online Universal Model United Nations! My name is Giovana Rabello, and I am currently a junior at the British School of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After five years of engagement in Model UN, expressing my gratitude for the activity is imperative. Besides bolstering my rhetoric, MUN has also shaped me into a more empathetic and kind human being, morphing me not only into a better speaker but perhaps even more importantly, into a better listener. MUN has gifted me with dear friends and memories that I shall cherish forever, and I hope the same happens with you!
As Secretary-General for YOUMUN, I aspire to retribute all the good MUN has done for me, by propelling delegates and chairs to pursue their passion for argumentation and diplomacy. As implied by its very name, YOUMUN wishes to make you believe in your capacity of bringing about change in the world, despite all hardships you may encounter. Through this conference, my central goal is to stage youth protagonism and provide an equalitarian and need-blind educational opportunity for high school students.
When not in MUN, you can find me freaking out about exams, watching old movies, laughing at things I think are funny for no reason or admiring the sunset at the beach. In all, YOUMUN promises three days of prolific and reasoned debate, lectures by specialists, workshops and much more! I hope to see you, delegates, exploring the polychotomy of arguments and devising elaborate solutions for the issues at hand. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. Can't wait to meet you all in August!
Chief Operations Officer
Esteemed delegates, guests and advisors,
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Youth Online Universal Model United Nations (YOUMUN)! My name is Júlia Bettes and I am currently a junior at the International School of Curitiba (ISC). It is with immense pleasure that I announce I will be serving as the Chief Operations Officer for this year's event. YOUMUN was envisioned to promote youth empowerment through dialogue and negotiation, thus preparing young leaders for the challenges of tomorrow. My love for MUN dates back to 2017. Now, 15 conferences and 4 years later, I can certainly say that MUN has contributed significantly to my life, not only in helping me step out of my comfort zone and overcome my fear of public speaking but also in transforming me into a more empathetic and understanding person. Perhaps most importantly, MUN has allowed me to meet amazing individuals, many of whom have become great friends of mine. After all the good MUN has done to me, YOUMUN is my way of giving back to the larger community by providing an inclusive environment for all types of delegates- be them newcomers or more advanced- to further develop their communication and negotiation skills and come up with insightful solutions to the world's pressing issues. It is my utmost hope that all those who participate in YOUMUN feel welcome and that this opportunity fuels them into being as passionate about MUN as I am. Most importantly, I hope that delegates can use the skills they acquire through this event to contribute to the creation of a better tomorrow.
In case you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you all in August!
