"We’re all told we don’t stand a chance, and yet we stand. We break, but we keep going, and that is not a flaw. That’s what makes us." - Elliot Alderson, Mr. Robot
The Director for UNGA at HFSMUN this year, Advait Sangle, has been a part of more than 15 MUNs across 4 Indian States. He has participated in all kinds of committees- you name it, he's been a part of it. Looking at his experience, one might take a step back and not approach him at all, but don't be daunted as he has a keen understanding of MUNs and can surely help you out. "Try to speak at least once, submit some paperwork, and make some friends during the conference" is his simple advice to the rookies. Although, if you thought MUNs were the only thing that composed his dream world, you're wrong. A footballer himself, he is a hard-core fan of the Tottenham Hotspur Football Team. Being very much into technology, he has a fond affection for mechanical keyboards and speed typing. We almost forgot to include the fact that he's the author of 'Privacy Museum', so go check it out right away! When it comes to all things quirky, Advait prefers Star Trek over Star Wars, surprising right? But arguably the most bizarre thing about him would be his taste in watches- you will definitely agree once you see him wearing one. Lastly, if you are privileged enough to be a delegate in his committee, do watch out for the 'Activate Windows' message on his screen. On a serious note though, UNGA will definitely thrive under Advait’s leadership, this year.
“Don't have potential written on your gravestone”
Being friends with Vihaan Purohit, Assistant Director for the UNGA, is certainly a riveting adventure. On one hand, you get to interact with an ebullient go-getter, while on the other, you can have an amateur guitarist with a passion for classic rock and 80s flicks. Vihaan is not hard to locate - just look for a person quoting 80s movies and 60s music, jabbering about the ‘golden age of television’, 24/7. He believes that the UNGA handles a large variety of topics that can engage everyone in a civil debate, and hopes to create a similar atmosphere at the conference. His favourite memory from a past chairing experience at an MUN is when Russia gave nukes to otters and China assassinated Kim Kardashian! If you’re someone who knows him well, you can attest to the fact that he may forget his phone number, but will always remember every article of the UN charter. As we told you, being a delegate in Vihaan’s committee is going to be an interesting experience for sure.
“Education is our passport to the future, for later has a place just with individuals who plan for it today." -Aryan Khanna
The Assistant Director of UNGA, Aryan Khanna, is the epitome of a life-long learner.
He likes to draw the principles from his MUN experiences to improve himself in real life and hopes the delegates in his committee do the same. He believes that he can help delegates gain greater knowledge about the UN and the prevailing geopolitical matters. A solution-focused individual, he encourages them to improve their public speaking and research skills, pushing the debate to new levels. His enthusiasm and curiosity are illustrated in his extensive experience with MUNs, having been a part of over 35 conferences as a delegate and around 10 as a member of the Executive Board. The UNGA attracted him due to its wide impact and ability to cover a range of issues, from international security to socio-political relations. His simple advice for delegates would be, "We are all in the making.”
Ensuring that everyone understands the mechanics of the committee and gets fully immersed in the subject is what he strives to achieve as the Assistant Director of UNGA.
