Welcome to BruinMUN 2017! My name is Arsal Zaheer, and I will be your Head Chair for the Arab League. This year the Arab League is poised to be a challenging and intellectually stimulating committee, and I look forward to the fast paced debate awaiting us this November.
I am a second year majoring in Economics while on the pre-medicine track. Model UN has been a part of my life since my junior year of high school, and since coming to UCLA, I have competed on the college circuit in addition to staffing conferences. As a Bay Area native, I hold a bias toward clean beaches, cool weather, and adequate public transportation.
Delegates will be debating some of the most pressing human rights and security issues in the Middle East and North Africa. This committee will require meticulous consideration of not only any actions pertaining to LGBT+ rights or insurgency movements, but also the geopolitical causes and effects of those actions.
Congratulations on entering a committee which will undoubtedly be contentious, exciting, and fast-paced. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have.
