Letter from the Chair
Dear Committee Members,
Congratulations on being a part of the most exciting committee in BruinMUN! As a part of the World Health Organization, we have the incredible responsibility to fight for worldwide health. Our unique body functions to implement solutions to long-term problems, as well as devising comprehensive plans in times of crises.
WHO has always held a special place in my heart, having been the first committee I ever participated in during high school. WHO encompasses everything that is Model United Nations – thinking on your toes, brainstorming creative solutions, being familiar with an extensive amount of research, and the ability to articulately communicate all of these ideas to form resolutions with fellow committee members.
I am a junior at UCLA studying Math Economics, although I’ve always had a passion for public health and foreign service. I have been participating in Model UN for over six years now. It continues to be my passion because of the continuous challenge, the diversity of complex issues, and the people that you meet throughout the process.
Whether this is your first MUN conference, or if you’re an old pro, I strongly encourage you to keep pursuing Model UN if you share a similar passion for world issues. I truly believe that there is no better thing to get involved in, and that being a part of MUN will make you a better person and member of society.
I absolutely cannot wait to meet each and every one of you, and hear your creative solutions to these devastating world epidemics. Take this opportunity to push yourself outside your comfort zone. Stand up and speak your opinion. You might even surprise yourself!
Here’s to an incredible conference,
