ABOUT US

WHO ARE WE?

DCMUN is a continuously growing, student run organisation under Mr Moore's excellent directorship. The organisation hosts exciting and highly anticipated Model United Nations conferences, twice a year, with an aim to encourage the secondary school students of Qatar to join a community that endorses public speaking, debating, and self confidence.

Students who join DCMUN have the opportunity to take part in many conferences throughout the year, including THIMUN Qatar, an international conference which welcomes close to 1200 delegates every year. However, the pinnacle of these conferences is the annual DCMUN conference hosted by Doha College. Every November, we welcome over 750 participants from about 25 different schools in Qatar to take part in our 3-day conference.

Raha Khorasani will be honorably serving as your Secretary General for this year’s ODTC and DCMUN. Ever since joining MUN in 2016, Raha has been constantly inspired by the community of MUN-ers who have shined light on various issues across the world.

She hopes to be a friendly and approachable figure for all delegates and participants in this years’ conference to interact and engage with. Another one of Raha’s aims this year is to create a platform where the words we write on a resolution can truly turn into action whether that is through community service or workshops.

DEPUTY SECRETARY GENERAL
NOUR MAAROUF
Nour Maarouf, is a Year 12 student, who is honoured to serve this year as Deputy of the Secretary General. Nour started her MUN journey in Year 9 where she instantly loved the debating world as she watched intellectual delegates speak eloquently about the issues surrounding the world. MUN has widely impacted Nour’s personality as she became more confident, resilient and independant. Nour is always so exhilarated to see students all with different backgrounds unite to discuss a certain agenda, and she thinks that it’s truly fascinating that each person debates the issue from their nations perspective rather than their own. She believes that this causes them to bloom into open-minded individuals. Nour’s goal for DCMUN this year is to motivate young delegates to courageously speak their mind and also shape them into ambitious delegates as they develop their social and communication skills. Her hope is to keep DCMUN enjoyable while remaining both political and professional and to educate them about issues that are going on to prevent ignorance. Nour is eager to share her experience with the delegates and she plans to dedicate her time and effort to better the club as a whole and ensure a real difference is made, not only in committee halls but outside too.

NALIN JOSHI
Over the course of the upcoming year, Nalin will be honorably serving as this year’s President of the General Assembly. His passion and drive for MUN ignited about 4 years ago, and that very same spark he once had still resides within him. It is his guarantee to all those attending, that he will give anything and everything it takes to make this year’s DCMUN as successful and remarkable as possible. His concern for society is displayed by his involvement in NGOs, and his desire to expand MUN beyond its current borders. With his current position in the Big 4, he understands the degree of responsibility he has to undertake in the following year. However, he isn’t one who backs down from such a task, and is assured to perform his role professionally, as well as make it a point to ease everyone else’s role by giving his own valuable input and contributions. Finally, Nalin’s goal is clear: provide everyone with the best possible platforms to bring forth change and drive to society. He recognizes the significance of empowerment to the youth, and strives to make this platform accessible and enjoyable for all. 
HEAD OF COMMUNICATIONS
NOURELDIN ALI
HEAD OF COMMUNICATIONS
HEAD OF COMMS.
NOURELDIN ALI
Noureldin Ali's passion for MUN conferences blossomed in Year 9. After entering his first conference, as a delegate, he quickly fell in love with the idea of acting like a diplomat of a foreign nation, lobbying to strengthen resolutions, and debating to challenge ideas and reinforce others. Around a dozen conferences later, he was honoured with the opportunity to create change in a club with a long-standing heritage, like none other in Qatar, and one that had always stuck very closely to its traditions, but in his eyes, perhaps a little too much.

One of Noureldin’s aims is to create a platform to showcase the talented individuals partaking in MUN conferences, with the hope of bringing light to the immense effort and passion they put into their craft. Another of his aims is to publish all of the passed resolutions at the end of each DCMUN conference. He hopes that, with this, we can better showcase the high-quality solutions, to the vast issues of today's world, curated by the delegates attending these conferences. Concluding with his aspirational dream of having these resolutions reach the eyes of the powerful individuals at the United Nations, inspiring them to act on these issues.

SABAH IMRAN
Sabah Imran is a student who is acting as Head of Press this year. She has been partaking in MUN since 2016 and took a strong interest in press after studying photography as an IGCSE course. This gave her an interest in journalism and photography which encouraged her to apply for this position. As head of press, her role in the conference is creating a pre-conference booklet, post-conference booklet and a video of the conference itself - alongside the Deputy Head and the rest of the team. She would recommend press as a good role in MUN, as it gives an overview of the whole conference and is a vital part of it. Sabah believes that her involvement in MUN greatly helped her in many areas, such as public speaking and group work; for these reasons she strongly encourages others to take part in DCMUN - as she credits it for a lot of useful skills she has gained.

Joining DCMUN has been so exciting for me because it strives to be the best there is. It is impressive to see that so many delegates have the possibility to reach their potential in so many variety of ways. MUN represents the best in education.

I am a History teacher, here at Doha College, and Debate Coordinator of the Senior Debate team. I have been involved in MUN in the past and was very keen to get involved again as I have been greatly impressed at the way it has evolved over the years.
