Letter from the Chair

Dear Delegates,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to BruinMUN 2018 and the World Health Organization! My name is Ariyana Chowdhury, and I am looking forward to being your chair during the conference and seeing you debate and engage with the chosen topics.

I am currently a junior at UCLA, and I am majoring in Political Science and double minoring in Entrepreneurship and Philosophy. I was born in Bangladesh, but I have lived in over seven countries over the course of my life. In addition to that, I have traveled to over 35 countries. As a result of my international upbringing, I am incredibly interested in conversations pertaining to issues with an international dimension that currently plague our world. As a result of that interest, I have been involved with MUN in some capacity since my freshman year of high school. In particular, I have been a part of BruinMUN since my freshman year at UCLA. Apart from BruinMUN, I am engaged in other clubs and activities around campus such as UCLA Radio, Cheese Club, and Bruins Beyond Borders. Outside of the classroom and away from extracurricular activities I enjoy exploring LA, watching all sorts of movies and shows, and spending time with friends. I am very passionate about cute brunch places (and brunch food in general), so if you have any suggestions please let me know.

As a BruinMUN chair, I am incredibly excited to go on this journey with you. Chairing a Novice committee is a special honor in particular as I get to accompany some of you on your first ever foray into the world of MUN! That being said, my experience with BruinMUN and MUN at UCLA has set the bar high. I expect high-quality debate and dedication. I look forward to seeing the enthusiastic defense of nation's and their stances, an active interest in crafting innovative resolutions and diplomatic exchanges. I am thrilled to see to what lies ahead and hope that all of you are just as excited as I am to create a space where it is possible to delve into the intricacies of some very complex and controversial issues. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out via email.  

See you at BruinMUN!
