USG of Conference
Currently enrolled in Grade 12 as an AP/IB certificate student at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School, Jasreet is more than honoured to be serving as the Under-Secretary-General of Conference for Abbotsford MUN 2021. While always intrigued by the prospect of international affairs and politics, Jasreet just recently joined the team. Due to personal experience, she understands how intimidating joining a club like MUN can be. Because of this, she hopes to inspire and encourage as many students as possible to join MUN, as it provides students with a valuable experience as well as a comprehensive understanding of the world on an international level, bringing many humanitarian issues to light. Jasreet has high hopes for the upcoming year, with the agenda of truly making this year’s conference stand out. She hopes to leave a legacy behind for upcoming years to follow in. In her free time, Jasreet enjoys going on runs, listening to music, and watching horror movies. She also enjoys a good true crime documentary!
USG of Delegate Affairs + Media
Edward Naidoo is the USG of Delegate Affairs. He is going into his 12th year at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School, the school that brought him into the world of MUN. As he first started school in December everything was very calm and quiet as he came at the wrong time of the year. So he started classes in the second semester and in the meantime he would do online CLE since he did not complete that. There were courses he did not complete but that's a different story on its own with its reasons. Due to the free time he had during his time in the last leg of the first semester, he had been alone for most of the days and looked into the clubs (as it would be his first time being in clubs). What became of interest was the Model UN club and he was SO Curious about what it was about! He went into the classroom and met Sourav there when the meeting was going to start and ... started to enjoy it. He got the chance to use research and a bit of his ideas in his arguments for the moderated caucuses (Check out our resources if you don't know that ;). What glued him into Model UN was the interactions and thrills Mods, UnMods, and delegate hangouts after the conference gave him.
USG of Committees
Lorig Korajian is an 11th grade, IB Diploma student at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School. She enjoys writing, travelling, music, and going to the gym. Lorig’s passion for Politics and International Relations derives from her traditional Armenian upbringing. Learning about the injustices her nation has faced in the past, and continues facing today, has led
her to draw connections between other global issues and seek for resolutions. Lorig hopes that with her position as USG of Committees in AbbyMUN, she is able to encourage other young individuals to further their learning of the world around them and bring more light to the crimes of humanity that have yet to receive justice.
