USG of Delegate Affairs
Attending her Grade 11 year at St. Patrick Regional Secondary in Vancouver, BC, Helga is thrilled to be serving as the USG of Delegate Affairs for AbbyMUN 2023. As a once-beginner delegate in Grade 8, her favourite aspect of Model UN has always been the opportunity to observe her personal growth - in confidence, communication, diplomacy, and understanding of the world around her - from the beginning of the conference to the end. Thus, she is determined to offer the same positive and exciting experience to oncoming delegates. When not pretending to know what she is talking about in committee sessions, she can be found dancing, stalking the real estate market in various parts of the world, procrastinating on homework, or watching Netflix documentaries to convince herself that she is having a productive day in spite of the aforementioned undone homework. Helga wishes the best of luck to all attending delegates of AbbyMUN 2023.

USG of IT
A student at Abbotsford Senior Secondary, Gurarmaan Dhillon entered the world of MUN in his freshman year of high school. While he managed to avoid the aversion to public speaking that typically overtakes a newcomer, the uncontrollable laughter he suffered in his speeches at his first mock conference regarding feminine hygiene products was arguably far worse. But after three years and a number of conferences later, Gurarmaan has honed his craft with enough prowess to have the privilege of serving as USG of IT in the last AbbyMUN he’ll witness before graduation. With an active role in his school’s MUN and Debate clubs, Gurarmaan is heavily invested in global affairs. He is also enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program, headquartered in Geneva, and has risen to the top of his class in numerous subjects. In the little free time that remains, he likes to de-stress as an avid anime enjoyer.
Gurarmaan urges everyone reading this to participate in the conference and engage in rich discussions about the political and economic state of the world.
