Celina Qu

USG of Conference

A sophomore at Semiahmoo Secondary, Celina is ecstatic to serve as the USG of Conference for AbbyMUN 2022. Between waging nuclear war in the Senate and narrowly escaping annexation in the Historical Cabinet, she has come to treasure all the meticulously crafted speeches and everlasting friendships woven within Hyatt Regency’s committee rooms. She has grown familiar with wading through chandelier-lit ballrooms for opening ceremonies and sleepless midnight crises alike—has grown to love the nuanced political discussion and intricate policy exploration that MUN stands for. When not writing her next directive, Celina can be found struggling to decipher Akkadian cuneiform, replaying yet another indie Metroidvania game, and watching Arch Linux send a torpedo through her laptop for the twelfth time. She hopes that CAIMUN will be an unforgettable conference for everyone, and looks forward to meeting all delegates in November!
