I am excited to welcome you to the Jr. MUN at this year’s BERMUN conference! I have participated in three BERMUN conferences as a delegate, and this will be my first conference as a chair.
One of the two topics we will be discussing in our committee is reducing gang violence. Gang violence is a worldwide issue, even amidst the current pandemic. Gang violence has been around for centuries and is difficult to prevent and control. Although it is often dealt with locally, I hope delegates can collaborate internationally to begin to tackle this important matter.
In my experiences as a delegate, I have found that constructive debate occurs when nations come together to negotiate solutions to the topic at hand. In addition, voicing your nation’s opinion during debate is a valuable way to learn and grow as a delegate.
I am fifteen years old, and I am a German-American student at the John F. Kennedy School in Berlin, Germany. Outside of MUN, I enjoy math, music, acting, and playing lacrosse.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of you at this year’s conference,
Co-Chair of the Jr. MUN
