I am always keen on debating and discussing, reflected by my experiences in MUN and English Parliamentary Debate circuits. I have participated and won several MUN conferences in national and international level.

I’m a kind of person who is impressed by structurized and substantial speeches, fruitful debates, and well-delivered arguments inside the committee session. I also expect well elaborated and factually correct solutions from delegates. Engaging and accommodating manner from delegates will be further improve our council’s flow since this topic is a communal issue that needs immediate and realistic solutions to be adopted. And don’t worry, if you are new to MUN, I hope that Board of Dais and the rest of committees will provide the best experiences at your first time conference. Don’t be discouraged and keep learning. (Don’t forget to make friends and enjoy your time!) I do hope that this topic guide will be the first step to accelerate your research regarding this topic.
