I am both delighted and honoured to be your chairperson for the eighth edition of VHMUN’s Historic Security Council. With fond memories of the past two editions of VHMUN (both as a delegate and a chairperson), I will be striving to make the proceedings even more fascinating and engaging than the previous years.
Being a usually unusual teenager, Model United Nations conferences have been a desperately needed constant in my life for the past few years. My experiences of more than two dozen conferences have genuinely transformed me. My sole advice to all the delegates would be that they attempt to develop the urge to learn as much as possible, from these kinds of conferences.
The self-confidence and going beyond your comfort zone will open you up to a world of new opportunities. Staying well versed with current affairs across the globe will virtually become an obsession. Your newfound ability to communicate effectively will allow you to develop synergistic relationships and will vehemently advocate my opinions. Persuading delegates to support your paperwork will make you a better diplomat than you could have ever envisioned. Responding to the barrage of questions will give you a gift you will treasure: the ability to think on your feet.
The agendas in question have remarkable similarities: both situations have been instrumental in deciding the fate of the stability of their regions. In both cases, the committee sessions would begin at incredibly stressed times.
With diplomacy in ruins and prospects of peace in shambles, the threat of a dystopian world looms large. In these desperate times, countries gather in a last attempt to uphold the goal of the United Nations ‘to save the succeeding generations from the scourge of war.’ The world looks towards us with great hope and wants us to be harbingers of peace, so let’s be one of them.
Feel free to contact me in case of any queries.
I Khush Mullick, your Co-Chair HSC, am in my second year of Computer Engineering from NMIMS, Mumbai.
A strong believer of the ideologies of former US President Francis. J. Underwood, I definitely agree with the words, “We don’t submit to terror, we make the terror.”
Apart from my keen interest in MUNs, I also have a love for the camera and have had experience on both sides of it since the age of 7. If you ask me about my favourite experience in the entertainment field, it would definitely be my part in the Web Commercial for Netflix’s House Of Cards. My only fear, much like Augustus Waters, is oblivion, because I intend on living an extraordinary life, and being remembered.
I strongly believe that such events help us to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation, and help us in thinking out of the box. At VHMUN 8, we’ll immerse our minds in an environment full of ideas pertaining to real issues that the world faces today,
I expect the delegates to make a sincere attempt to resolve the problems in a powerful yet engaging manner through this entire process of debate and negotiations.
