Letter from the Chair
Delegates of Novice ECOSOC,
Welcome to BruinMUN 2016! My name is Christina Farhat and I am ecstatic to be chairing Novice ECOSOC this year. I am originally from Beirut, Lebanon but have moved to Los Angeles to study at one of the happiest places on earth, UCLA. I am an Economics and Political Science double major, and I’m particularly fascinated in International Economics and International Relations. I’m sure you will repeatedly hear this phrase, but MUN did, in fact, change my life. I have had the extreme blessing of traveling the world through MUN: this program has taken me everywhere from Qatar to New York City. When not participating in debate you can find me on the soccer field, on the beach, reading the news, or consuming a wide array of snacks.
In Novice ECOSOC this year we will be discussing Education in Post Conflict Situations and the International Transition from Millennium Development Goals to Sustainable Development Goals. I chose both of these topics because they are directly relevant to current events, and topics I have studied extensively in university. I believe they will create an extremely stimulating debate.
When researching I strongly encourage you to stress on your countries’ positions, though it may differ from your personal opinion. For many of you, this will be your first MUN conference. I ensure that all of you will leave with a better understanding of our topics, an elevated confidence, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Do not hesitate to contact me at any point approaching BruinMUN; I would love to hear any questions/concerns you may have to ensure Novice ECOSOC is the best committee it can possibly be!
Greatly looking forward to meeting all of you in the fall.
Christina Farhat | Chair of Novice ECOSOC
