The executive team


The CO-Secretary generalS


My name is Sara Swords and I’m the CO-Secretary General of KICSMUNXVII. I’m honoured to be a part of the Executive Team and equally excited to make this year’s conference an experience you’ll never forget. MUN has always held a special place in my heart and has indubitably enhanced my global awareness, public speaking skills as well as my overall confidence. The creative freedom is like no other and the sense of independence you gain will assuredly become interdigitated with your lives, inside and outside MUN. I’m ecstatic to be able to use my voice to lead, inspire and guide others and I will make sure these same skills are passed down to all those participating. I wish you a fruitful conference and an experience of a lifetime!!

Hello, my name is Sharif ElGabbani and I am the CO-Secretary General for KICSMUNXVII and I am grateful to be a part of this years Executive team.

I am excited to listen and watch how this year’s delegates will debate and I hope that all delegates will enjoy this years annual KICSMUN conference.

The chief of staff


Hello my name is Lena Awad, I’m the Chief of Staff for KICSMUNXVII. I’m excited to be apart of the executive team to ensure the conference runs smoothly and is enjoyable for all members. To me MUN is an extremely valuable program as it allows you to socialise, meet new people, increase your confidence and improve your leadership skills. MUN allows you to increase your awareness on global issues as you are researching them and debating them! And seeing as MUN is a student led conference, students are provided with the creative freedom and are empowered to have control over their learning. As well as allow their voices to be heard. MUN has allowed me to improve my communication and self management skills. And so, I’m honoured to be apart of the team that leads this significant and powerful conference. I look forward to a successful and fruitful conference, our first on-campus one in over two years!

“For me, Model UN is a case in point example of student-led learning. It is an activity that teaches students diplomacy, leadership, negotiation, public-speaking, resolution writing and parliamentary procedure. Students interact with other students and learn from them. The diversity of students involved from other schools, means that MUN is also building a community of young leaders knowledgeable in worldly affairs while being mindful of the local significance of those issues. Regardless of the amount of research, hours and weekends dedicated to MUN, students choose to learn and have fun while doing it. Confidence is built and students walk away with lifelong skills they will carry with them in all aspects of their lives, both professionally and personally.”
