From November 17 to November 23, four students from the Model United Nations (MUN) club attended THIMUN Singapore. Ariel Chen served as the head chair of General Assembly 3, and worked hard to manage a room of about 50 delegates from all over the world. Ethan Murphy, Ethen Chiu, and McKenzie Chen represented the country of Israel in three separate General Assembly committees, where they worked to draft, revise, and pass resolutions related to the conference theme. At the end of each day, students also got to enjoy Singaporean cuisine and several popular tourist attractions, including Marina Bay Sand, the Night Safari, the Singapore Flyer, and Universal Studios!
The THIMUN Singapore conference is a five-day simulation of the United Nations. It is one of three conferences sponsored by the THIMUN Foundation. The THIMUN Foundation’s mission is to promote and foster collaborative, solution-oriented discussion to important issues. Attendants of THIMUN conferences seek, through discussion, negotiation, and debate, solutions to the various problems of the world, such as questions of human rights, protection of the environment, economic development, disarmament, and the problems of youth and of refugees, as well as the more critical issues of war and peace. While most of the MUN conferences HAS students attend take place in Taiwan, THIMUN Singapore gives students the opportunity to meet and work with students on an international level.
