Letter from the chair

Welcome Delegates!

My name is Esha Raman and I am very excited to be your chair for Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural committee at NorthMUNC IV this year!

Before I talk about committee and what I expect out of delegates, let me tell you all a little bit about myself. I am currently a senior at West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North and the Director-General of General Assemblies of our Model United Nations team. I have done Model UN for all four years of high school, and my favorite committee to take is SOCHUM. Outside of Model UN, I am captain of the girl’s varsity golf team and head community organizer for the Breast Cancer Resource Center. In my free time, you can find me binge watching Netflix (House of Cards and FRIENDS, of course) and traveling.

I would also like to briefly introduce our staff-members for SOCHUM who will be working tirelessly to ensure this committee is a grand success. Carly Kowalski is a junior at North and is on the varsity cheer team. Additionally, she is a dedicated dancer and also mentors young children at her local dance studio. Kripa Srinivasan, a junior, plays the violin and is an active member of Medical Forum. In her free time, she likes to read and spend time with friend and family. Finally, Pranav Kumar is a sophmore at North and plays for the North tennis team. Outside of school, he likes to spend time with friends and play basketball.

As delegates of SOCHUM, you are challenged to address the ever-growing issue of nuclear terrorism and its effects on the international community. You can expect to debate topics ranging from safety measure surrounding nuclear facilities to corruption in government army’s that aid terrorist organizations, to reducing nations stockpiles of highly enriched uranium. Due to the committee’s large scope, it will be of utmost importance to collaborate with other delegates in order to present the best resolution. While remaining diplomatic and as inclusive as possible, a good delegate should also be able to change the flow of debate, make nuanced arguments and introduce unique solutions to the problem at hand.

Regardless of any award that comes out of our day together, I hope to make a positive impact on all of you and help you grow as delegates in some way. Please feel free to reach out to me at raman22441@gmail.com if you have any questions, or just want to introduce yourself! I am extremely excited to meet you all in October!

Best,

Esha Raman

Letter from the Vice Chair

Hello Delegates!

My name is Aman Anand and I am very much looking forward to being your vice chair for SOCHUM this year at NorthMUNC IV!

Although clearly my main focus during this conference will be anything and everything MUN, let me tell you a little bit about who I am. I am currently a Junior at West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North and serve as the USG of Communications for North’s MUN team. MUN has served a greater purpose for me than just a club, and has not only provided me with valuable and irreplaceable life lessons, but has allowed for me to make a bond with my North MUN team that I will never forget. Aside from doing MUN for the 3 years that I have been in High School, I am also an officer for High School North’s Student Council and Key Club. Outside of school, I love to eat at any restaurant, watch movies as well as Game of Thrones, and enjoy a great time with my friends.

At NorthMUNC IV, I expect to see not only insightful debate surrounding the effects of nuclear terrorism, but collaboration and cohesiveness between delegates as you convey your ideas. Diplomacy is something which should be and will be incredibly stressed during committee, so while attempting to bring your points across while replying to those of others, you must also be respectful with your wording and decision making. I have no doubt that this years NorthMUNC will be the best one yet, as Delegates, it is your job to keep the discussion entertaining, interesting, and most of all innovative.

I look forward to seeing you all at NorthMUNC IV, and I am once again extremely excited to be your vice chair this year. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about committee, the conference, or North MUN as a whole at amannj18@gmail.com. Once again, I wish you all the best at NorthMUNC IV!

Best,

Aman Anand
