OFFICER BIO

What is your name, position, delegation, grade, and the number of years you’ve been in MUN?

My name is Adam Schwartz and I will be your African Summit Chair. I’m currently a senior at Westfield High School and this will be my third year in MUN.

 

What is the best thing about your committee?

The best thing about African Summit is the perfect midsize of around 50 delegates. It’s enough people to have great diversity of thought but still small enough to get to know everybody in the room by the end of conference.

 

What advice do you have for new delegates?

My advice for new delegates is to not be afraid to stand up and speak. Though it may seem intimidating at first, everyone wants to hear your ideas and the more people participate the better conference will be.

 

What is your favorite MUN memory or experience?

My favorite MUN memory was during my first unmoderated caucus my first year and I had no idea what we were supposed to be doing. I was approached by a senior from Montgomery High School who introduced me to his friends and we began to draft a resolution together. We presented it together and I even got to make the closing statement. It was a great introduction to the nature of the program and allowed me to become comfortable early on.

 

What other activities do you do?

I play tennis for my high school.

 

List some fun facts/icebreaker kind of information. Some examples are: Your favorite food, a country you would want to visit, tv shows you watch, type of music you listen to, etc.

My favorite food is chicken and waffles, I would love to visit Italy, my favorite TV shows are Breaking Bad and Silicon Valley.

 

Anything else you’d like to share?
