DISEC

Katie Cheung
Chair
I am Katie Cheung, a sophomore at the Noble and Greenough School. I was introduced to Model UN as a freshman, and instantly fell in love with the critical thinking and public speaking it requires. I have attended ClarkMUN2019, HMUN2020, HoMMUNC XXXV, and BruinMUN2020, participating in various General Assembly committees. From presenting speeches to fellow delegates during moderated caucuses to negotiating mergers outside the committee room, I have learned to think quickly and formulate pragmatic solutions to real-life problems. I hope to support you in doing the same! I am incredibly excited to Chair a committee for the first time! When I am not at conferences, I play soccer, run track, and play the violin. I am eager to meet you in April 2021!
