DCMUN

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.

As the next generation of leaders, we have a responsibility to educate ourselves on the issues of the world we live in. Though we may currently live in a safe environment, we cannot ignore this responsibility. MUN provides the opportunity to learn about, debate and provide solutions to global issues. It encourages empathy, collaboration and problem-solving. Whether you aim to be a diplomat, doctor, engineer or artist, MUN broadens your mind as no other activity does. Starting my MUN journey as the shy delegate of Djibouti, I have long looked up to the executive team. Through dedication, motivation and a lot of clause-writing my passion led me to step into the role of student officer and Deputy Chairwoman of the Club. Throughout my time in the latter position, I have contributed to the smooth-running of the MUN club by devising innovative activities to captivate students of all ages. I am now determined to use my experience in this role to help the training team improve the MUN club even further. The executive team and I will ensure that DCMUN XIV, the club and IMPACT program are the best yet. We will strive to implement the Sustainable Development Goals in all our activities and truly contribute to our community. I am determined to make MUN a far-reaching program rooted not only in conferences, but in the school as a whole.

Being chosen to serve as the Secretary General is one of the greatest honours that I have had the pleasure of accepting. From my first day in the club as a mere delegate to the first conference at which I chaired, I have always looked up to the DCMUN executive team as not only great leaders but also great change-makers. Our previous executive teams have laid down the foundations, and it is now our responsibility to steer the DCMUN ship and leave a lasting legacy. In my time as Secretary General, I hope to inspire the club members to strive to make a positive difference in our community, have thought provoking discussions, and become more confident in themselves. The team of dedicated students I work with strive, everyday, to make our community a more inclusive one, and I am extremely grateful to be able to not only make a tangible difference, but do so with such motivated peers. Across the many initiatives we hope to bring to the school, our main focus remains on impact within the community. We hope to work with different committees within school, including the ECO and Charities Committee, as well as external organizations. The DCMUN club has given me a plethora of opportunities to develop as a person, and I am extremely grateful to be able to give back to this community. I cannot wait to begin this journey with the new executive team. We hope that this year will be an unforgettable experience for all club members!

Owing to my passion for collaborative discussion on world issues and continuously learning more about global challenges and how to overcome them, I have been a part of DCMUN for four years, having explored various aspects of the MUN experience from being part of the press team to being a student officer, all over the span of 14 conferences.

DCMUN has truly enhanced my personal development and connected me to a group of highly motivated and like-minded individuals-as a DSG, I thus hope to ensure that the DCMUN club and conference experience inspires you, and is as informative and enjoyable as possible.

I used to be shy, unable to form a full sentence without stuttering. As a result people did not listen to much of what I said. But, MUN helped me change that. It gave me confidence in myself, helped me realise that what I thought were flaws can be some of my strengths. It changed me into someone who is better than who I could have ever pictured myself being. I became a DSG not so that I could have a nice title, but so that I have the opportunity to help people who need it. I want to help create a platform where people can come together to solve the world’s problems. So that we can advocate for those who need help, give a voice to those who do not have one.

Hello everyone! My name is Lamya and I am honoured to be serving as your President of the General Assembly this year. My responsibilities include selecting and training chairs, managing committees and making sure our conferences run smoothly. But most importantly, I am here to ensure that all of you participating will have a wonderful time in MUN. As the PGA of DCMUN my goal is simply to ignite a passion for MUN and encourage fruitful debates on current issues plaguing our world today. This includes introducing new committees into our conferences, exploring relevant issues and expanding DCMUN to host more participants. I have always been passionate about providing adequate and accessible education for all and hope to explore this issue further in our conferences. I am also interested in automation and its impact in the future as well as sustainable agriculture. I would love to see discussions on these topics in our conferences and hope we can work towards resolving them. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together over the next year and wish you all the best in your MUN endeavours!

Hi! I’m Flurina and I have the honor of being Doha College’s MUN chairwoman this year! I’ve been a member of this school since Year 7 and I have always had a passion for debate. Perhaps what I am most excited about when taking on this role is instilling that same passion in many others. One of the main reasons I love Model United Nations is because it is one of the best ways to grow your mind and grow your confidence. You quite literally become smarter, quicker and bolder by just winning arguments - is there a more satisfying way? My main focus this year is to make delegate training and our Tuesday club as effective, fun and innovative as possible. I’m aiming for it to be the club that everyone talks about and wants to be a part of. And, with my training team, and the help of this year's executives, I think we are going to be very successful! I promise that we will work our hardest to make this next year the best yet! I look forward to meeting and working with you all… Let’s get started!!

Hey y’all! I’m Kavya and I’m the Deputy Chairwoman of DCMUN this year. MUN is one of the most influential platforms for younger students to raise their voice and advocate issues in the world that are necessary to bring light to, especially in our current world which is filled with more prejudice and injustice than what the future should grow with. More anguish that just keeps rising. The conflicts in this world are so immense and one way to be able to mitigate the effects of them is to first bring attention to them. During this pandemic (if you haven’t been sleeping on the news), you would know that there has been so much going on, from climate disasters to political tyranny. This is where MUN comes in. I used to be sheltered from the world, not knowing what went on, living as though everything was fine—it’s not. We have the power to change everything for the better, and one way to start with that, is to get educated through a vast and phenomenal platform such as MUN. Cheers to a better future, I’m looking forward to the change we’ll bring!

I’m aiming for it to be the club that sparks the most interest in everyone around the school and has the most number of people joining.

Hey! My name is Fahd Fares and I’m the new Head of Admin for DCMUN. MUN is an amazing experience that I encourage everyone of all ages to participate in. I find MUN interesting because not only does it keep me up to date with worldwide issues, it allows me to become more confident in my public speaking abilities and helps strengthen my collaboration skills. As Head of Admin, I wish to get more people to apply for this position since it has such a crucial role in how smoothly a committee runs.

It was an honor to be selected as one of DCMUN’s deputy head of admins this year. MUN has always been an enjoyable experience for me and, being given the opportunity to spark the interest of others, impact DC’s community, and assist running the very conferences that inspire me, has been truly humbling. Over the next year, I’d love to contribute to DCMUN’s impact as a club tackling issues like the devastating threat of climate change and gender equality, training admins, and running conferences to the best of my ability. Alongside Fahd and Avni, I hope to help bring about one of the best years of DCMUN yet.

I have always had a passion for Art and Design, but never in my wildest dreams would I have envisioned myself in the role of the Head of Press for DCMUN. Our exec team comprises of some of the most skilled people I have met and so I cannot wait to see the journey DCMUN 2021 takes and I hope that you will be with us for the ride. While MUN is still a novel experience to me, I have always been passionate about all things political, but I've always had a particular interest in Environmental Engineering, and so, SDG 11 has always been one that piques my interest, and I hope that our work in Press helps you join the DCMUN community!

As an avid member of the DCMUN club since Year 8, I never imagined that in 4 years’ time I would be so humbled as to be part of a team of such wonderful and talented people. While being part of Press has its challenges, it also has its fair share of exclusive light-hearted banter and, needless to say, the tapping of keyboards coupled with relaxing jazz whilst writing articles provides top-tier ASMR. One of the most rewarding aspects about being a member of Press is that in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, moving in and out of committee rooms, you get a glimpse of the multitude of issues being discussed which broadens your knowledge of the goings-on in the world. An issue that really grabbed my attention was the growing issue of global educational inequality.

With a burning passion for videography and photography, I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am to exercise these skills to a somewhat professional level! To be able to capture this representation of the United Nations that truly expresses unity in every sense of the word is an honour like no other. In this coming year, I hope that as your new Deputy Head of Press, I will be able to meet - and perhaps even exceed - your expectations.

In our ever-evolving society, I believe that youth advocacy is incredibly important. MUN has not only allowed me to educate myself about topics I might not even have been aware of otherwise but also to gain a deep enough understanding to debate and argue about them to find the best solutions. Gaining this global perspective highlighted to me how interconnected our world is and how important it is for everyone to be involved.

But that raises some questions. How do we involve more people? How can we bring the clauses we write on a piece of paper beyond the walls of a debate room? The Impact team aims to target just that. We have planned many initiatives for the entire school to be involved in. Ultimately, I believe that DCMUN can grow beyond an MUN club, where the students turn their ideas into real-life action to address the problems they see within their communities. The Impact team also hopes to forge partnerships with like-minded organisations, allowing us to expand our reach and make a bigger impact. I’m really excited to be part of the exec team this year and for the new projects that are soon to come! Please look forward to them!

With issues such as climate change and global financial crises taking over, exacerbated by the pandemic, it is even more essential that we spread awareness for today’s youth, who are, effectively, tomorrow’s future. By empowering discussion around these issues, MUN seeks to drive positive change and promote student leadership. Being part of MUN for the last four years has been an incredibly rewarding journey for me, and has given me the opportunity to meet new people, embrace different perspectives, while discussing thoughtful and innovative solutions to make the world a better place. As Head of MUN Impact, I look forward to working on SDG-focused initiatives within our school and community, and helping delegates and chairs across all year groups get involved. In the United Nations, the work doesn’t stop at the debate; the proposed solutions are then implemented to create real-world impact. Accordingly, MUN Impact aims to do our part within our communities: while MUN has always helped spread awareness of the SDGs, this year, we hope to make it a platform to drive change. We hope that DCMUN and our MUN Impact initiatives provide you with an enriching learning experience that you will carry with you going ahead. Wishing you a wonderful conference!

ARRAN CAMERON
Greetings MUN, my name is Arran Cameron and I am the Head Justice for the ICJ this year. I’ve been in Doha College since year 4 but only recently joined MUN, and despite only attending two conferences, I’ve picked up a lot of experience from ICJ and have enjoyed every second of it. A large part of why I’ve run for this position is because of my debating background, as well as the intriguing cases. In particular, Ukraine vs Russia, a model proceeding which I would thoroughly recommend reading about. In my eyes, what makes a great Head Justice is their determination and commitment to the role; qualities I promise to uphold during my time in ICJ and as an executive member. My involvement over this past year has given me the opportunity to familiarise myself with what this committee has to offer, and have subsequently set myself a main target of promoting the ICJ within the MUN club, as well as the addition of an ICJ session each week rather than just before conferences. This would help train another generation of advocates, as many delegates currently don’t know much about this committee. Above all of these objectives I wish to complete, I hope that I bring a legacy of happiness to the club and intend to make sure everyone enjoys ICJ as much as I have.

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.
