Executive Council

Secretary General: Yoonho Cha

Honorable Directors, Respected Participants and Distinguished Guests,

I am Yoonho Cha and it is my utmost honor to be serving as your Secretary General for the 25th Anniversary BEIMUN conference. I am a senior at the International School of Beijing and from Seoul, Korea but I have lived in Beijing for most of my life. By the time BEIMUN XXV is over, I would have participated in a capped total of nine MUN conferences in my High School career. Aside from the subject-specific knowledge regarding current events and global politics, MUN has allowed me to learn more about people and our society in general.

My MUN experience was kickstarted when I enrolled into the Middle School MUN Enrichment program with my friend. I remember first reading the name of the program and feeling quite intimidated. However, after having finished the first class of MUN enrichment, I was charmed by its professionalism and level of academic rigor. I was compelled to continue in the program, starting as the Delegate of South Africa in the Disarmament Commission to now an administrative officer of the Secretariat. Committing to one experience requires one to retain their original intentions of trying it in the first place. Thus, I would like to wholeheartedly welcome those entering the cordial and prestigious realm of MUN and encourage those who are already immersed in it to continue whilst evoking their indigenous motivations and hopes for MUN.

Words cannot express how thrilled I am for BEIMUN’s 25th Anniversary. We hope that you will enjoy the conference while it progresses and reminisce about it for years to come. See you soon!

Deputy Secretary General: Laurina Ye

I’m Laurina Ye and I am honored to be serving as your Deputy Secretary General for the 25th annual BEIMUN conference. I will be a senior at the International School of Beijing and this will be my 6th year in the MUN program. Personally, MUN has strongly impacted me through building personal connections with peers from other schools and learning about different issues around the world.

Being born in New Jersey, I’m proud to say that I have been able to experience both American and Chinese culture, which has allowed me to see the world through different lenses. Outside of MUN, I love traveling to new places around the world to see different landmarks and experience different cultures.

I’m extremely excited for the BEIMUN’s 25th anniversary and for you all to see what we have in store for you! We hope that you will enjoy the conference as much as we will have had planning it.

Deputy Secretary General: Terry Zhao

My name is Terry Zhao and it is my great honor and pleasure to serve as your Deputy Secretary General for BEIMUN XXV. I am a senior at the International School of Beijing, and BEIMUN XXV will be my 6th MUN conference. As new technology constantly changes our world, the role of the United Nations as a global facilitator and administrator has never been more important. I think that MUN is a fantastic way of opening ourselves to this new world, as we must develop our skills to face a new set of challenges. Apart from MUN, I also enjoying playing piano, basketball, and reading. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy and make the most out of this conference and I look forward to a productive and inspiring conference!

Deputy Secretary General: Eden Liu

Hello BEIMUN participants! My name is Eden Liu and I am honored to be serving as your Deputy Secretary General for BEIMUN XXV. Although I currently reside in Beijing, I was born and raised in Bellevue, Washington. Next year, I will be a junior at the International School of Beijing with three BEIMUN conferences under my belt. 

My initial inspiration to join MUN came from my desire to become a global-minded individual. However, I soon realized that the program had so much more to offer to me. My MUN career began when I decided to join the program in my middle school years. Since then, I have been afforded many incredible opportunities within the program and have happily immersed myself into MUN culture. Being a part of this spectacular program has made me appreciate the significance of international unity and cooperation. Issues such as climate change and terrorism are all topics that our generation will have to tackle and solve, so it is imperative that we understand and participate in this simulation so that we can embody vital skills such as problem-solving and diplomacy that would help us create a better future.

Besides MUN, I am also a seasonal swimmer and a passionate coffee-lover. Believe me when I say would gladly drink a gallon of coffee a day if it weren’t so detrimental to my health. You could also say I am a photo-hoarder. I love saving and collecting memories that I can look back on in the future. I am so excited to make many more amazing memories at this upcoming BEIMUN! I can’t wait to share the great things we have in store for the 25th anniversary of Beijing Model United Nations. See you all in March!
