A LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY GENERAL
Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and Friends,
My name is Isabella Aires Ribeiro, and it is my sincere pleasure to serve as Secretary General for the ninth session of the Miami International Conference for the Simulation of the United Nations. I am humbled to extend an invitation to all high school advisors and delegates on behalf of the University of Miami Model United Nations Team to take part in an exciting and engaging weekend of debate, cooperation, and camaraderie.
My love of MICSUN started after I witnessed the passion of so many high school students during MICSUN 2019. Currently, I am a Senior studying International Relations and French. I have competed through Model UN for 2 years, starting back in my Junior year. Although I started Model UN in college, I wish I had started in high school, as it thought me important skills that I will carry for life. In 2020, I hope to provide a phenomenal weekend encouraging new thoughts, questioning the status quo, and fostering new friendships.
MICSUN IX will act as a platform for growing minds to gather and new perspectives to disseminate. We will see novel solutions applied to widely shared problems. I would like this conference to challenge those who attend to think more critically of the world around us, the global issues we face, and the ways we can begin to affect positive change.
The University of Miami Model UN Team eagerly awaits hosting you at the ninth annual MICSUN. We will be here to ensure the satisfaction of all delegates and advisors throughout the process of the entire conference. On behalf of the secretariat, the team, and all of our fantastic volunteers, I assure you we will work ceaselessly to bring you the best conference in our collective ability.
I look forward to greeting you all and seeing this conference become reality in 2020.
Isabella Aires Ribeiro
Secretary General MICSUN IX
