HEADS OF DEPARTMENTS
Head of IT
“I never worry about action, but only inaction.”- Winston Churchill
Heetej Jagatia is the embodiment of ambition and honesty. Being friends with him is the easiest task one might take up and never regret (except when he refuses to share his very inviting tiffin). As the IT head this year, he holds the responsibility of making the virtual experience as smooth as possible for all who are part of this grand event. Being thoughtful and cooperative is something he resonates with. The list doesn’t end here though.
Football has always been a sport that he enjoys both playing and watching. The adrenaline rush during the competition and the feeling of oneness when the team wins, are some moments that have ignited his senses all at once. Thus, he’s made some of the most cherished memories being part of the school football team at the DSO level. His experience in several MUNs before has certainly made him realize the one truth of the conference; so much that he places his bets on the fact that the most important trait a delegate could have is confidence, even more so than knowledge. It's how you display your knowledge that earns you points.

Our Head of Design, an aesthetic and resourceful personality, Ananya Jain, is an aspiring architect. Through diligence in her work, she aims to achieve perfection, not to forget her meaningful, innovative, and precise designs making her the star of the virtual realm. This year, for the HFSMUN, she intends to deliver designs that through their colours and motifs are not only pleasing to look at but also have some significance embedded in them. We like to assume that her tall figure is the result of her former basketball ventures. Having learned Bharatanatyam for 8 years, she feels it is something that will always be a part of her. She has a knack for creativity and a perpetual adoration for cats.
After experiencing several MUNs as a delegate before, she has realized that her true passion lies in the designing/organizing aspect of them. For her, MUN is not just a forum for individuals to voice their opinions but an opportunity for them to explore and showcase their hidden talents and unequivocally shape their personalities. As for her world beyond achievements, jamming to 2010s English songs always hypes her up. Everywhere she goes, she carries her tall and brave form, with a welcoming smile on her face. In the halls of debating, when the appealing designs around you keep your morale high, it is because Ananya has found the perfect way to fill in the vacuum in the event with her mind-boggling creativity.

Head of Photography
“If you want to turn a vision into reality, you have to give 100% and never stop believing in your dream.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
A mix of clumsy yet politely charming, Sadhil Singh aims to express the joy of all the “fortunate” students that attend the conference, through his pictures. The fact that he’s always surrounded by a group of people shows just how socially adept he is. We have all been acquainted with his photography skills and are very pleased with the fact that we have a very skilled and passionate photographer with us who is patient enough to click as many photos as you want, on-demand, without a single sour turn on his mouth.
A bad background? weird lighting? a tired face? don’t worry, Sadhil can take the perfect picture and for that, we thank him. Along with this, being a nature lover and a robust athlete are two things he’s very proud of and it is justified as he’s a state-level runner and the junior NBA Mumbai runner-up.
He’s often posed as a delegate for MUNs in the past but what he truly took away from those events was the confidence one must have to speak in front of an entire committee.
“You have to remember something: Everybody pities the weak, jealousy you have to earn.” by Arnold Schwarzenegger has become his motto for life and no, it's not just a random quote from the internet.
“We find comfort among those who agree with us, and growth among those who don’t.” - Frank A. Clark
Zainab Hussain, our Head of PR, is the most outgoing and confident girl one shall ever meet. However, her glares are enough to scare anyone if they tamper with her carefully organized work. She is colloquially referred to as “the social butterfly” and to become her friend is the easiest task in the world. This year, she has taken it upon herself to tackle the notorious Instagram algorithm, taking our social media presence to the next level. Collaboration and expression are two innate qualities of hers that MUNs have enhanced and thus, driven her excitement for this initiative. Also, as a humanities student in high school, she can never be defeated in understanding human emotion and behaviour to its core, no doubt, making her the perfect head of the public relations department. Always the optimist, she is a firm believer in the words of Marilyn Monroe, “This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up.” Her talented and always ever-so-approachable sweet face is what makes her an irreplaceable member of the HFSMUN 2022 family.

“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary” - Jim Rohn
Himank Agarwal is the creative, inquisitive, and immensely helpful individual that you are looking out for. Being the Head of PR this year, he desires to reach out to the best collection of competitors for this event. His commitment to his work and friends is something people largely identify him with. Ever the charmer, he is a professional voice-over artist and an actor. Having attended the India Voice Fest as a volunteer multiple times, he is, no doubt, a great thespian. He’s also voiced-over advertisements for Saavn and conducted a podcast with Greg Chappell himself. As an active member of the PR team last year, he managed to acquire the most number of delegates despite resorting to the online medium. MUNs have allowed him to be more vocal about his thoughts, and have boosted his confidence.
A talented footballer, he has also been a part of the school team for 5 consecutive years, along with being an active member of his club. Himank, like any other sportsperson, has imbibed the important lessons of leadership and team-building through his sporty ventures. Lastly, whether it's rap songs by xxxtentacion and juice wrld or a good ol’ football match featuring his favourite team (FC Barcelona), either can make his day.
“It's either now, or never"
A passionate personality, Mira Menon puts her heart and soul into fulfilling her responsibilities. As the Deputy Head of PR, Mira hopes to make sure that the advertising and marketing of the MUN conference stay top-notch. An all-rounder and a picture of a perfect student, Mira excels at everything that she tries her hand at, and when she truly loves one activity, she wins the world with it. The epitome of ‘Now or Never’; cookery helps rekindle her enthusiasm, even during her episodes of low spirits. As an ardent cook, she has participated in several cooking competitions and put up stalls, seasoning the palates of many. But her skills don’t end here. She is a district-level Badminton player, her interests largely steered by Carolina Marin. She has also excelled at MUNs, and the experiences that she internalized are what she values the most. She has chosen MUNs as a platform to portray her leadership skills, make the best networks and of course, eat the best food. Quoting the cook herself, “MUNs have helped me build my personality to become as bold as the flavours of my famous ramen noodles. Her affable nature and her curly, gorgeous hair are the salts to her confident figure
Deputy Head of PR
Head of Security
“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” ―Theodore Roosevelt
Are you looking for an ambitious, dynamic, and resourceful personality? Go no further if you have met, Hriday Bhojani, the Head of Security for HFS MUN 2022. He shall be the one-man army for this majestic event, ensuring that decorum and order is maintained during the conference. Along with this, he is responsible for making sure that all-important protocols of COVID-19 are followed at the offline premises.
His guardship duties aside, he’s an avid football fan and enjoys both watching and playing the game. The perfect jock with a tall and broad form, guess what, he’s also a huge Bollywood buff. Speaking of his experience in MUNs before, he admits to having been acquainted with all the grunt work that goes into the management of the conference. These words might make him sound like a tough bodyguard in black but be assured that his heart is made of gold. A loyal follower of Mr. Dwayne Johnson (no, we are not surprised), he believes to “Wake up determined, go to bed satisfied.” is the mantra indeed.
"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent" - Ludwig Wittgenstein.
The Head of Logistics, Yuvika Menon is very outgoing. As an organized individual, she expects everything to run smoothly under her able guidance and wishes that everyone enjoys the event. Always fussing about with her phone cum mirror, she comes across as the picture of the innocent, quiet girl. However, she also admits to being the loudest person in the room (protecting your eardrums is your own responsibility). A jack of all trades, she is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer, an excellent district-level swimmer, and a dedicated pianist. Nevertheless, just like any other muggle out there, stand-up comedy and old Hindi songs are her most coveted pastimes. Peace and chaos, the perfect paradox.
The way she perceives MUNs is very unconventional. For her, it’s much beyond debates, it's a place where she gets to meet and engage with new people, improve her managerial skills, make memories, and have a good time. As long as Yuvika has got your back in the event, you need not worry.

Deputy Head of Logistics
“You don’t stop having fun because you grow old, you grow old because you stop having fun.”
The Deputy Head of Logistics, Nikshay Doshi, promises to keep the mood of the event lighter by activating his humorous charms. He has the ability to leave an impression and to make people laugh with his ridiculous antics. Nonetheless, this doesn’t stop him from being a highly encouraging and supportive head to his team. Best presented as an effective communicator, his skills took him to the heights by bestowing upon him several awards in MUNs. He admits that MUNs have shaped him a lot in unexpected ways. He has learned how important coordination is, and how to utilize the unexplored skills that one possesses. It is his sarcastic approach to things that makes him oh-so lively and his words, once spoken, are remembered by others for life. Harboring other interests other than just being the comedic relief for his friends, playing cricket has always been exciting for him as it brings out his passionate and hard-working persona. Being the residential charming boy, there is no chance that this event will be listless in his presence.
“Your choices make you who your are.”
We identify our Head of Press, Sejal Agarwal, as someone who can bag an opportunity and leave an impression. However, describing her as a raging workaholic and a fiction lover might be declared an understatement by those who have heard her rant about the same for 30 minutes straight. She has the ridiculous ability to read two books in a day and shares the rare preference of annotating them. Head in the clouds with feet on the ground, Sejal is a daydreamer with tough principles for herself. One she’s willing to share is that “If you didn't get it, you didn't work hard enough.”, and while that might not be the most eloquent quote you would expect, it is what she swears by. She likes to call herself an average writer with vast experience in leadership, writing, and editing roles that have helped her acquire skills she is abundantly proud of, all while being a part-time sketch artist. To balance all these holistic pursuits, she has developed a keen interest in business administration and managed to become part of a solo marketing project at the 'Two Brothers Organic Farms'. This year, she looks for writers who might change her outlook on the famous MUN banter and help provide the audience with material they largely missed out on. Lastly, locating her isn’t that hard, all you need to do is look for a girl with a book or a pdf opened on her laptop, highly engrossed after successfully checking off her to-do list for the day.

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”.- Joseph Campbell
The Deputy Head of Press for HFSMUN 2022, Rijul Kharat, is an innate philomath. With a resolute fervour for Biological Sciences and Public Health, not to mention writing and poetry, Rijul’s competence lies in her curiosity. Simple yet complex, she is an open-minded speaker, listener, and thinker. She carries her confidence brazenly, differentiating her from the crowd, and embellishing her to be a good leader for the position that she upholds in HFSMUN 2022. She envisions making the power of expression an integral asset to the event.
Being an NTSE scholar in 2021, and having won several medals at the International and National Science Olympiads, attests to her academic prowess. The founder of a not-for-profit organization, and a published poet, Rijul is remarkably multifaceted. Having hosted MUN conferences as a city chief, and serving on the HFSMUN 2021 organizing committee, her experiences speak volumes about her passion for MUNs. Rijul, as we identify her, is a girl with inordinate laughter, much after the joke becomes obsolete, so if you meet her during the epiphany of a past joke, you should join her in that. Being someone who is often dissatisfied with her hair, she, however, never swears off bragging (obstinately) about how good it looks. Having developed a strange gusto for melons, she prides herself on her fruit savour.
A non-fiction fanatic and a literature zealot, she is often drawn to the language rather than to the melody of the song. By accepting challenges, embracing ideas, and thriving under pressure, Rijul will continue to act as a driving force for her team.
“You choose the life you live. If you don’t like it, it’s on you to change it because no one else is going to do it for you.”
Our Head of Delegate Affairs, Eshaan Chaturvedi is the most dynamic and strategic leader one could stumble upon. This year he aims to contribute towards handling all the operations behind the scenes pertaining to delegations’ queries after their registrations. Being the HR of the team, he shall be instrumental in helping students new to MUN become comfortable with the knick-knacks of the pre-conference hustle.
Alongside this, it’s his extensive networking resources and communication skills that make him an absolute asset to our team, thus paving the way to having a great community at this event. An all-time dispute manager, he is the first one a friend could call when they need clear advice about a serious situation. It's his logical and frank outlook toward affairs that makes him so dependable. However, we must give credit to his immense involvement in sports like football where he has managed to bag innumerable awards, not to mention the black belt in Taekwondo that he is so proud of. He has varied interests in subjects like Physics, Maths, and Economics, helping him become an essential member of the Young Tech Scholars Plaksha Program. We would also encourage you to check out his research paper on India’s private space sector regarding its functionality and job opportunities if you haven’t already. Lastly, don’t worry about approaching him, if you are a fan of any of the Christopher Nolan movies, you are bound to become his friend easily.
