THE SECRETARIAT 

Deputy Secretary-General

Ge Shu

Ge Shu is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking Physics, Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Economics. She joined her first MUN when she was in Secondary Three and was still new to a predominantly English-speaking environment. However, she was deeply inspired by the experience. She made a lot of friends and picked up a range of invaluable skills through those experiences, such as public-speaking skills and interpersonal-relationship management. Subsequently, she signed up for various other MUNs and developed herself along the way. This year, at SMC, she serves as Deputy Secretary-General. In her free time, she loves painting and, surprisingly, solving mathematical problems. She sincerely hopes that representatives will have a fruitful time discussing some pressing local issues and negotiating with each other to find the best solution to the problem. She encourages everyone to share their opinions regardless of their experience since no idea is ever worthless, after all.

Secretary-General

Iris Tan Wei Qi

Iris is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Geography. Her passion for societal, global and political affairs has seen her take on the role of Chairman of iGlobe and Secretary-General of SMC. She is interested in discovering the multiple perspectives of complex issues in the world and how countries balance their interests against those of others on the international stage. She is also curious to see how justice is determined in both domestic and international law. She finds negotiating, speaking and talking about her views a joy, and is passionate about exploring the fascinating world beyond Singapore. In her free time, Iris can be found sawing on her violin, reading books and challenging her friends to eat spicy foods, hobbies that add immense joy to her life.

USG for Outreach

Indrakshee Mukherjee
Indrakshee is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and, fascinatingly, German. Knowing four languages has definitely sparked her love for languages and she hopes to pick up more in the future. She hopes to fluently speak and understand Mandarin, a language she sadly gave up after kindergarten, but does not want to give up on for life. She may not be the most experienced MUNner, but she is definitely a passionate speaker who enjoys discussing various topics and having philosophical conversations with anyone who fancies the same. As the Under-Secretary-General for Outreach and a chair, she manages the website and Instagram page. An avid foodie and mystery lover, she likes exploring all disciplines and prefers taking small steps into the future. Shee (one of her absurd but interesting nicknames) hopes that all representatives will have the opportunity to have meaningful learning at SMC 2019.

USG for Communications

Lau Yong Yee, Chloe
Chloe is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking History, Economics, Literature and Mathematics, also known as the typical Arts-stream combination. Due to her love for the written word, she also serves as Chief Editor of the College's global affairs society, iGlobe. Her passion for global affairs, history and politics led to her interest in MUNs, which combine all three wonderfully. MUNs have taught her to be adaptable, resilient and confident, finally giving her some positive attributes to list down on university applications. She hopes that new representatives will feel the same. As Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Crisis Director, she will put in her best effort to ensure that representatives have a meaningful experience and enjoy the conference.

USG for Academics

Pearlyn Wong Yan Li

Pearlyn is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking History, Economics, Literature and Mathematics. She has more than eight MUNs’ worth of experience, having participated in them since Secondary Two. She hopes that all representatives will have a fruitful conference ahead and encourages everyone to just speak up in debate. She believes that there is no right or wrong answer in a MUN, only undiscussed opinion. She looks forward to interesting debates on contentious issues. She serves as Under-Secretary-General for Academics and a chair at SMC this year. Obsessed with structural inequality in the education system, Overwatch and reading, she often wonders if sleep is really necessary to function. She looks forward to working with representatives to help them along on their MUN journey.

USG for Academics

Ma Xueqing
Xueqing is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking History, Economics, Literature and Mathematics. Since attending her first MUN three years ago, Xueqing has been irresistibly drawn to the scene, and even schedules her holidays around MUN dates. As Under-Secretary-General for Academics at SMC this year, she hopes that representatives will be inspired to be more sensitive to both local and world issues. Besides being part of the College’s global affairs society, iGlobe, Xueqing is also part of the College’s debate team. However, after trying to keep up with the overwhelming amount of intellect that surrounds her, she finds great solace in building lego models, even though she is struggling to find an appropriate casing for what she is currently building.

USG for Communications

Sharmaine Pang
Sharmaine is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking an interesting subject combination: History, Literature, China Studies in English and Mathematics. Sharmaine started off as a delegate in UNASMUN 2016 and later on chaired at SMC 2018. This time, being the only female chair in a cabinet full of seasoned MUNners, she hopes that she will not be driven to insanity by her fellow chairs. Sharmaine is definitely a sucker for twisted psychological-thrillers and finds herself spending most of her time on Netflix (subsequently, rushing to complete her long-overdue essays). Excited about this conference, she looks forward to meaningful debate and encourages representatives to keep an open mind about novel ideas. As Under-Secretary-General for Communications and a chair, Sharmaine hopes to give all representatives a fruitful and immersive experience in SMC 2019.

USG for Logistics

Matthew Yip Tze Herng
Matthew is a second-year student at Victoria Junior College taking Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Economics. Matthew was first introduced to MUNs in Secondary Three, and has loved it ever since. His passion for MUNs has driven him to participate in three MUNs over the last few years. With the experience and expertise gained from these MUNs, Matthew fills the roles of both Chair and Under-Secretary-General for Logistics in SMC 2019 to pay forward what he has learned. He hopes to guide the next generation of students as they go on their MUN journey. In his free time, Matthew can be found either watching F1 races or playing F1 2018 when there isn’t a race. (In case it’s still not clear, he is a huge F1 fan.)
