SCVMUN: Silicon Valley Model United Nations Conference

Santa Clara Valley Model United Nations Conference is our largest conference of the year! At SCVMUN, over 1,000 delegates across schools on the west coast compete in rigorous policy and debate on a number of pressing and relevant issues.

SBMUN: South Bay Model United Nations

South Bay Model United Nations Conference is Monta Vista's very own conference! It offers delegates the opportunity to continue practicing MUN skills with other delegates from the Bay Area.

President

Janelle Cai
Hello! I’m Janelle, and I will be your KMUN president this year! I am currently a senior and I’ve been doing MUN for 6 years. Being in Model UN is an amazing experience, and I’ve made so many amazing memories through the club. Through Model UN, I’ve also gotten a better understanding of many topics and issues in our world today, and it has also taught me so many life long skills, such as communication, negotiation, leadership, and collaboration. MUN has helped me build confidence in myself, and I’ve met an amazing community of people through MUN. Aside from MUN, I am also involved in math, coding, and robotics. I’m excited to meet and work with all of you this year!

Training

Aarna Burji
Hello everyone!! I’m Aarna and I’ll be one of your training officers for KMUN this year. I’m currently a sophomore at Monta Vista and a member of MVMUN. I’ve been doing MUN since 8th grade and it has been my favorite club ever since. KMUN fostered my love for Model UN, and taught me how to communicate effectively and confidently. It created valuable and memorable experiences that I hope you guys will find this year. Outside of MUN I enjoy robotics, hiking, and participating in various non-profits and local volunteering opportunities. I am excited to help you all grow as delegates, and I can’t wait for the upcoming year!

Training

Riya Murthy
Hi everyone! I’m Riya and I’m super excited to be one of your training officers for KMUN this year! I’m currently a sophomore at MVHS, and have been doing MUN for five years — since my first year of middle school! MUN is a super thrilling experience that alongside teaching you political relationships and real-world issues, allows you to learn about public speaking and coming up with speeches on the fly. Outside of MUN, I enjoy reading, writing (both with El Estoque and doing poetry), as well as editing (for a competition called Polyphony Lit). Looking forward to meeting you all!

Logistics and Public Relations

Kathryn Foo
Hey everyone! I’m Kathryn and I’m excited to be your Logistics and PR Officer for KMUN this year. I’m currently a sophomore and I joined MUN last year as a freshman. Before joining, I only really knew MUN as being the quintessential movie nerd hobby. Now though, I’ve found that, looking back on the experiences I’ve had, MUN has genuinely become my haven for comfort and chaos. Here, I’ve grown my confidence, public-speaking skills, and ability to think on my toes and I can’t wait to see what else MUN has in store for me! Outside of MUN, I’m passionate about anything with words: writing (on staff with El Estoque), reading (especially cheesy rom-com), and public-speaking.
