HEAD OF DEPARTMENTS
Head of IT
“I never worry about action, but only inaction.”- Winston Churchill
Heetej Jagatia is the embodiment of an ambitious, thoughtful, and most importantly honest guy. Being friends with him is the easiest task one might take and never regret. Seeing that it’s the first offline MUN after a long-time, he holds the very important task of making the experience as smooth as possible for the delegates as well as the organizing members and the executive board. Being co-operative and responsive 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 things he’ll always remember, and 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 mention her meaningful, innovative, and precise designs make her the star of the virtual realm. This year, for the HFSMUN, she intends to deliver designs that through their colors and motifs are not only pleasing to look at but also have some significance embedded in them. A former district-level basketball player, Ananya also excels at athletics, having bagged countless medals on her victory. Having learned Bharatnatyam for 8 years, she feels it is something that will always be a part of her. Sketching, painting, and DIY are some of her favorite pastimes. She has a knack for creativity and customisation. An animal lover, she has 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, yet with a welcoming smile on her face. And in the halls of debating, when appealing designs 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 designs.

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 much of a people-person he is. We have all been acquainted with his photography skills and are no doubt 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. 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 also 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 easily 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 becoming 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 another level and ensuring the highest number of participants don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity. Collaboration and expression are two innate qualities of her's that MUNs have enhanced and thus, driven her excitement for this initiative. In addition to that, she puts all her heart and soul into any work she does. No responsibility is too big for her as Zainab’s passion for work keeps her driven and motivated against all odds. Also as a humanities student in high school, one can never defeat her in understanding human emotion and behavior to its core, making her no doubt the perfect head of a public relations department. Always the optimist, she is a firm believer in the words, “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.” by Marilyn Monroe. Her talented and always ever-so-approachably sweet face is what makes her an irreplaceable member of the HFSMUN 2022 family.

Head of Security
“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” -Theodore Roosevelt
Best described as ambitious, dynamic, and resourceful, being the Head of Security for HFS MUN 2022, he aims to make sure that the decorum and order is maintained during the conference and resolve any conflicts that may arise. Along with this, he is responsible for making sure that all important protocols of COVID-19 are followed at the offline premises. His bodyguard tendencies aside, he’s an avid football fan and enjoys both watching and playing the game with zeal. The perfect jock with a tall and broad form and 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 blood, sweat and tears that goes into the management of the conference and he believes his presence will aid in running the conference this year smoothly and efficiently. These words might make him sound like a tough bodyguard in black but rest assured that his heart is made of gold, and this is the fact that makes people talk to him freely, without a sense of awkwardness present. A loyal follower of Mr.Dwayne Johnson (no, we shall not be surprised) himself, he believes that 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 that everything would run smoothly under her able guidance, and wishes that everyone enjoys the event. Her phone standing in as her mirror is one thing she is always recognized with, though she also admits to being the loudest person in the room( protecting your eardrums is your responsibility). An excellent district-level swimmer, she has competed in several swimming competitions. A jack of all trades, she is also a trained Bharatnatyam dancer. Playing the piano is one of her most coveted pastimes, and stand-up comedy and old Hindi songs make her day. Chaos and peace, what a perfect paradox. The way she perceives MUNs is very unconventional. It is much beyond debates, it's a place where she gets to meet and engage with new people, exchange knowledge, and ideas, and improve her managerial skills. As long as Yuvika has got your back in the event, you need not worry.

“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 using this very comical side of his and making people laugh with his ridiculous antics. Although, this doesn’t stop him from being a highly encouraging and supportive head to his team members, and always hoping for the best. His aim, this MUN, is to make sure that everything goes extremely smoothly and most importantly, everyone attending, enjoys it. 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 and 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, remembered by others for life. Harboring other interests other than just being the comedic relief for his group of friends, playing cricket has always been exciting for him as it brings out the passionate and hard-working side of him. Being the residential charming boy that he is, there is no chance that this event will be listless in his presence.
“Your choices make you who your are.”
We can call our Head of Press for HFSMUN 2022, Sejal Agarwal; as someone who knows how to 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 know her. She has the ridiculous ability to read two books at a stretch in a day and shares the rare preference of annotating her books. Being 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 a vast experience in leadership, writing, and editing roles that have helped her acquire skills she is extremely proud of along with being a part-time sketch artist. To balance all these holistic pursuits, however, she has developed a keen interest in business administration and has 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. Lastly, locating her isn’t that hard, you just need to 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 Deputy Head of Press for HFSMUN 2022, Rijul Kharat, is an innate philomath. With a resolute fervor for Biological Sciences and Public Health, not to mention for writing and poetry, Rijul’s competence lies in her curiosity. Headstrong, and simple yet complex, Rijul is an open-minded speaker, listener, and thinker. She wears her confidence and audacity 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 the NTSE Scholar 2021, the Founder of a non-profit organization, and a writer and published poet, reflects Rijul’s determination and prowess. Being a part of the organizing committee for HFS MUN 2021, and having organized MUN conferences as the Head of City, her experiences speak volumes of her passion for MUNs. Rijul, best described by others, is a girl with inordinate laughter, much after the joke becomes obsolete, so if you come across her during her profound epiphany of a past joke, you should join her in that. A non-fiction fanatic, and literature zealot, Rijul is often inclined towards the language rather than 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.

Our Head of Delegate Affairs is the most dynamic and strategic leader one could come across. This year he aims to contribute towards handling all the operations behind the scenes pertaining to delegations’ queries after their registrations. Being the human resource of the team, he shall be instrumental in making sure to help students new to MUN be comfortable and ready for exciting debates as well as guide MUN veterans to the procedures of HFS MUN. Alongside this, one of his traits that makes him an absolute asset to our team is his extensive networking resources and communication skills which no doubt paves our way to a great community at this event. An open-minded disturbance handler, anytime a friend needs clear advice about a serious situation, he is always ready to help them, and it's his logical and frank approach that makes him so dependable. Having participated in MUNs since a young age, he has recognized MUNs as a great way for students to exemplify their public speaking, debating, and research skills but most importantly cooperation. However, we must give some credit to his immense involvement in sports like football where he has managed to bag tournaments and awards including the black belt in Taekwondo 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. Lastly, if you are a fan of any of the Christopher Nolan movies, you are bound to easily become his friend.
