Kevin Zuo
| Secretary-General

Kevin is a senior at Fraser Heights Secondary and is honoured to serve as the Secretary-General of CAHSMUN 2018. Having actively participated in Model UN since his Grade 8 year, Kevin has delegated and staffed at numerous conferences, as well as encountered countless individuals who are sure to become the leaders of tomorrow. Model UN granted him new lenses through which to perceive the world around him, and it has allowed him to forge lifelong bonds with erudite youths from across the country. When not behind the podium delivering speeches or up at night editing essays, Kevin can be found playing the piano for leisure, cuddling his labrador retriever out of adoration, or planning his trip to visit the wonders of the world. Kevin is beyond excited to meet all the participants in April and knows that CAHSMUN 2018 will be a rewarding experience.

Peter Jiang
| Director-General

Peter Jiang is a senior in Semiahmoo Secondary’s International Baccalaureate program and with his passion for Model UN, comes his absolute joy in serving as your Director-General for CAHSMUN 2018. Ever since his first conference three years ago, Model UN has become an irreplaceable and defining aspect of his life. When he isn’t in a suit, you can often find Peter playing trombone, cooking, and laminating his notes so his tears roll off. When he really has time, he won’t miss the opportunity to escape his surly earthen problems and fly away in light aircraft. CAHSMUN 2018 is sure to bring intense debate, new friendships, and an all-around amazing adventure for all teachers, students, and staff alike. Peter is happy to be a part of this journey, and looks forward to seeing everyone in April!

Irene Zhang
| USG Delegate Affairs 2

In her junior year at Fraser Heights Secondary, Irene is honoured to be serving as one of the USGs of Delegate Affairs for CAHSMUN 2018. Ever since she walked into her first Model UN conference in an oversized blazer, nothing could have ever prepared her for the life-changing adventures that she was about to have. From intense debates and inspiring speeches to incredible rhetoric and amusing props, she has truly experienced some of the incredible things Model UN had to offer. Not once has she ever looked back and regretted all those all-nighters, midnight crises, and position papers. In her free time, Irene enjoys spending hours drawing, practicing Taekwondo, and contemplating post-secondary options. Attending CAHSMUN conferences in that past has taught her invaluable skills in public speaking, diplomacy, and critical thinking, and she hopes that CAHSMUN 2018 will do the same for volunteers, staff members, and delegates alike.

Since joining MUN, Janice has quickly fallen in love with the fast paced debates, the holistic education that MUN promotes, and the diverse people that make up the committees. Outside of MUN, Janice can be found rowing, running track and field, reading women empowerment books, and watching Grey’s Anatomy. Janice is looking forward to organizing a spectacular conference and she is excited to watch friendships form and witness stellar debate at CAHSMUN 2018!

Celina Chen
| USG Conference

Currently in her senior year at Pinetree Secondary, Celina is incredibly honoured to be serving as the USG of Conference for CAHSMUN 2018. Ever since her first conference in 2014, Celina has been completely enchanted with Model UN and its community. Thus, after feeling the impacts of youth empowerment for herself, she strongly believes that the skills and memories one receives through partaking in MUN is truly life-changing, and wishes to share that ideology with as many people as possible. When Celina isn’t busy procrastinating on homework, you can find her binging Korean dramas, crying over how difficult calculus is, practicing piano, volunteering around the city, taking random walks, on a long rant with a friend, or very, very, very rarely, doing something genuinely productive. She is extremely excited to meet passionate delegates and sponsor teachers in April, and hopes it will be an unforgettable conference experience for all attendees!
