Secretariat

Who exactly do you contact when you need help? Who is behind those emails to you? That would be us, the secretariat! Get to know us, we’re always looking for new friends!

President

Parth Asawa

Hi everyone! My name is Parth Asawa, and I'm excited to serve as your President this year! I joined MVMUN as a freshman, and doing so has been one of the best decisions I've made in high school so far. Perhaps two of the most alluring aspects of MVMUN, are the intense (but fun!) nature of competitions, in addition to the close friendships you build within the team. I look forward to getting to know everybody this year, and hope to help make your MUN journeys incredible! Outside of MUN, I'm involved in Math and Physics competitions and clubs, and love playing basketball and frisbee recreationally with my friends.

Vice President / President of Kennedy

Nelson Mu

Hey guys! I'm Nelson Mu, and I'm happy to serve as your Vice President for this year! Prior to my 3 years of MUN, I had no experience with leadership or communication, and this club really helped me develop those vital skills. Outside of MUN, I like to do volunteering and political advocacy and debate, and when I'm not being a complete nerd I like to chat with people and play video games. I am extremely excited to see how our club's delegates grow, not just as competitors, but as people. I will also be working to ensure that the year offers as many experiences for fun and growth as it did for me the last three years!

VP of Conferences

Nathan Wang

Hey guys! I'm Nathan, and I couldn't be happier to be your VP of Conferences next year! I started my MUN adventure in 8th grade and I have had a blast screaming at other delegates as we hammered out a resolution just a few minutes before the deadline (this is not recommended :P). I hope you will have a wonderful time in MUN as you write resolutions, win awards, and most importantly: enjoy yourselves! Outside of MUN, I can be found doing competitive programming and playing tabletop simulator & card games. Please feel free to reach out to me for any reason at any time :)

VP of Internal Affairs

Sylvia Li

Hello! I'm Sylvia Li and I'm your VP of internal affairs this year. I'm a junior and I have been in MUN since 8th grade, and although at the time I had no idea what I was getting myself into, I've grown fond of this club and all the people I've become friends with. I joined (and stayed) in MUN because of my curiosity towards discussions of the world and global issues, despite the fact that my public speaking skills may not have been the best. MUN has pushed me to improve myself, whether self-confidence related, or creating strong rebuttal arguments in under 30 seconds, and I truly believe the time and effort put into this club is worth it. Outside of MUN, I'm a part of Color Guard, Track and Field, and I love working on projects with my friends.

VP of Finance

Dylan Yang

Hi everyone! My name is Dylan Yang and I'm excited to be serving as your VP of finances this year. I've been doing Model UN since 8th grade and I've never looked back. When I first joined, I thought I knew exactly what the club was about — speaking, debating, and most of all shouting. But over time I've learned that it's about a lot more than that. It helped me work on skills like negotiation or leadership (it also helped me realize how much I need to work on them), and built up my interest in global affairs as well. But most of all, I never expected how much I would grow to value the MVMUN community. I'd love to get to know you this year, whether as a MUN delegate or just to talk!

Logistics

Eugene Yoon

Hi all! My name is Eugene Yoon, and I'm the logistics officer for Model UN this year. I'm a senior, and I've gotten interested in MUN quite late in my high school career (there's always time to try new activities and clubs!). The learning I get from the MUN conferences is probably my most favorite part of this club; talking to other delegates and tackling current world issues improved my communication skills, including leadership, negotiation, speaking, and listening. These abilities have carried me through group projects, arguments with friends, and school presentations. Outside of MUN, I like to run, swim, read, and program (though not very well). I hope to know each and every one of you guys this year! Feel free to reach out to me any time if you have questions about anything, regardless of whether it's related to MUN or not!

Training

Conner Yin

Hi everyone, I'm Conner Yin and I'm super excited to be one of your training officers this year! I'm a senior that joined MUN in my junior year (it's never too late to try something new!) and I absolutely love the adrenaline that pumps through you when everybody is watching you give a speech or duking it out with Russia and China as the U.S. The MVMUN community is super welcoming, and I hope you'll all find the friendships and joy that I've found with this amazing club :]. Outside of MUN, I love to play all kinds of video and board games with my friends, as well as post covers and original songs to my YouTube channel (it's just my name, sub if you want hehe). You're always free to message me if you want to talk about anything MUN or non-MUN related!

Training

Howard Peng

Hey guys, I'm Howard Peng and I'll be one of your training officers this year. I'm a junior and I started MUN in my sophomore year. Immediately, I was really excited to be part of crisis committees, where I felt like I had the freedom to invent my own world. MUN has also helped me develop my leadership and speaking skills, and taught me how to develop relationships and maintain them. Aside from MUN, I like to program, particularly low-level programs, as well as read.

Webmaster

Jeffrey Meng

Hello! I'm Jeffrey Meng and I'll be your webmaster this year. I'm a junior and I joined MVMUN as a sophomore with the goal of improving my public speaking skills and having fun. I'm glad that I joined Model UN because in addition to improving my speaking skills, it's also let me practice leadership, improve negotiation skills, learn about global affairs, and meet new people. When I'm not doing MUN, you can find me programming, reading, and skiing.
