Dear Delegates,

As a chair of the Jr. MUN, I am tasked with introducing new delegates to the system of MUN as a whole. Together with my fellow chairs and all of you wonderful delegates, the Jr. MUN will be one of the best in the history of the BERMUN conference. 

In the Jr. MUN, we will be debating two topics: “Tackling Demographic Crisis” and “Preserving Oceanic Ecosystems Amid Overfishing”.

I will be focusing on the topic of “Preserving Oceanic Ecosystems Amid Overfishing”. Overfishing is a pressing issue as it affects many people and hurts the environment in many ways. With a growing population and a higher demand for fish, this situation becomes even more critical. Delegates of the Jr. MUN will have to find a way to solve this issue and will aim to turn this into ‘sustainable capitalism’, while of course learning the intricacies of having to debate from the perspective of a specific country.

I am 14 years old, am in 9th grade, and have been part of my school's MUN program for about 2 ½ years. I play 3 instruments and really enjoy math. I have lived in New York, Windhoek (Namibia), and, of course, Berlin. 

I am very excited to meet all of you delegates and hope to see a lot of very fruitful debate. See you then!
