The Chairs

Azmi Chahal

Welcome to AMSIMUN 2017! My name is Azmi Chahal, and I am so excited to be your chair for the UN Women committee. I’m a senior at Al Mawakeb Barsha. I’ve been to several conferences, and I’ve always sought out progress and improvement. I’ve had many downfalls throughout my journey, but I was able to find myself soon after analyzing my strengths and weaknesses and working on developing my skills to become a better member. As part of the UN Women, you will have the opportunity to tackle some of the most pressing issues surrounding women rights and experience, first-hand, the workings of the committee. I hope that by the end of the committee, you will better understand the role of the committee in international politics as well as improve your negotiating and speaking skills.

My MUN journey started seven conferences ago when I was just a young teenager like you guys. I am so excited for this conference and I expect to see some passionate delegates ready to debate about our topic. Good luck with your research! You can email me at [email protected]
