My name is Amina Elnour and I am the Secretary-General of the 12th annual KICS Model United Nations Conference. I am honored to assume this prestigious role, and will strive to act as a solid foundation in the construction of an excellent conference.
My KICSMUN journey began 6 years ago, when I joined my first MUN session as a senior student. Since that point in time, it has been a dream of mine to lead a Model United Nations conference. Little did I know then, that 6 short years later I would be where I am now- the Secretary-General of the 12th annual KICSMUN conference. Looking back, it is mesmerizing to see just how far we’ve come as a conference, a community, and most importantly as a MUN family. MUN is an activity dedicated to opening and expanding the minds of our future generations, while teaching us to be global citizens and student leaders, hence its importance in our education.
The theme for KICSMUN XII is ‘Barriers to Development: A Journey to Prosperity’. It tackles the issues that developing nations face in terms of overcoming obstacles be it political, infrastructural or even social. The theme objectifies each nation in the sense that all nations are considered developing since each of them face matters that need to be overcome, regardless of their magnitude. The theme also takes a positive outlook on developmental issues, as delegates will be required to propose solutions on matters in the best interest of the region in question.
The councils that will be present in the conference are the Historical Security Council, the Security Council, the Human Rights Council and the Economic and Social Council. This variety of councils will allow delegates to explore the history behind developmental concerns and their effect on the world today. The broadening of the minds of future generations is a priority for us at KICSMUN, with the council selection being a step forward in the right direction.
I am looking forward to witnessing greatness…
