Dear Participants of the 2021 BERMUN Conference,
I am honored to be serving as a first-time chair at this year's Jr. MUN!
One of the topics that we will be discussing in this year's Jr. MUN committee is rehabilitating child soldiers. Many young children to this day are still being forced into and enlisted in military groups all across the world. Finding ways to aid these children as well as agreeing on a global level response is a very challenging task. Clearly, this is still a significant problem and I am excited to see what our committee resolves to do.
I am a 14-year-old attending the 9th grade at the John F. Kennedy School in Berlin. I have traveled and moved around and enjoyed growing up with different cultures. Some of my hobbies would include swimming, dancing and gymnastics. I also love acting, traveling, and spending time with close friends (and sometimes even family). During this long-lasting pandemic, I have found it more difficult to find the motivation or even the option to do most of my hobbies and even MUN and BERMUN are two things I have in fact never been able to partake in non-virtually, but you learn to enjoy the small things.
I have been participating in MUN since the beginning of 8th grade, but I have always enjoyed debating and discussing with others. MUN has taught me a lot and exposed me to many of the issues around the world that I otherwise might not have been aware of.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I am here to help you and make this experience as fun as possible,
I can’t wait to meet you all in November!
Co-Chair of the Jr. MUN
