Ayaulym Chinaliyeva
CEO

I started as a volunteer on Regional NSWMUN 2017, and now I'm in OC:) The atmosphere, relationships and surely new experience are still the components of the MUN World that drive me in it.
I was a GA volunteer during 2017 season, therefore my major responsibilities included transferring diplomatic notes and mics between delegates. Next season, I became a member of the Entertainment department, so my job was mainly to write scripts: opening and closing ceremony scenarios, video script. These days, I'm having the role of a business person and ambassador coordinator.
Obviously, I learned a lot during working in this team and obtained skills like team-work, public speaking, script writing, networking, and others. Everything that I mentioned previously is the reasons why I'm still in NSWMUN.

Daniya Kassenova
Under Secretary-General for External Relations

I am a part of NSWMUN since 2016, where I participated as the delegate of India in Human Rights Council. Last year I served as USG for External Affairs and continue to work for this year conference too.

The reason I am a part of MUN community is that I feel responsibility for our world and wish to see it get better. One of the favourite parts is meeting and learning from different people.

There are several reasons why I became a part of this incredible NSWMUN organizing committee family. First, I think that membership in NSWMUN organizing committee encourages me to widen my horizons, engage in self-development and teaches me effective strategies for the future. Second, since I study International Relations, work in NSWMUN is definitely suitable with my major. And last but not least, it is all about people there. I enjoy being surrounded by inspirational, open-minded, aspirational young people.

Alikhan Janabayev
Head of Entertainment Department

Since childhood, I have always been interested in politics and international relationships. I have always considered myself an initiative person, with an active civil position. In 8th grade, I joined the debate club in my school, which has really advanced my oratory and diplomatic skills. However, for me it was not enough, I wanted to move and develop further. Then I discovered more formal debates in terms of Model United Nations. My first attempt was in 2017 when I participated at KazNU Mini MUN. That was a starting point of my MUN experience. Six months later I was lucky to volunteer at Model United Nations New Silk Way, where I met lots of new friends, gained enormous experience and valuable knowledge. There I was able to express myself and show my interest in organizing such conferences. Thus I joined the MUN NSW Organizing team and soon became a Head of Entertainment Department. I can proudly declare that I am putting my treasure into the development of our conference.

Aruzhan Ibragimova
Member of Law and Business Department

I’ve been participating as a delegate at Model United Nations Conference since 2016. I really like debating, but MUN is not only about it, but also about critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. This year I became a member of Organizing Committee, and the reason that I’m here is the feeling that you’re doing something for a greater cause (i.e. your academic field). In running a conference, you gain excellent experience with planning, organization, and negotiation.

Ramazan Andarbayev
Member of Business Department

My path to Organizing Committee began from NSWMUN 2018, which I attended like a volunteer. Friendly atmosphere of the team led me to join them. Thanks to them I evolved my working abilities and discovered new boards of big MUN family. Since that time, we are working side by side for our great goal.

Chingiskhan Zhunussov
Ambassador of NSW MUN at Nazarbaev Intellectual School of Chemistry and Biology, Member of Food Department.

Being in organizing committee of NSW MUN is essential experience due to many reasons. First, it provides me with various opportunities, such as traveling around the world and meeting interesting people. Second, it nurtures self-discipline and responsibility – one of the most important qualities of the modern world. Lastly, I value warm and cozy working atmosphere that is present here.

Lyazzat Kartbayeva
Member of Production Department, Marketer, Ambassodor of NSWMUN at NIS CBD in Almaty

My name is Lyazzat and I am 17 years old. I joined the team in 2018 for the most important reason, which is unrealistically great guys and amazing surroundings.

In OC, I work in production, which helps me to develop the necessary skills for my future marketing profession. My responsibility is to create new ideas and offer several alternatives to solve one problem. Thanks to MUN, I developed the skills of competent oral communication - the ability to correctly express my thoughts during a conversation, correctly and logically build my speech, also the ability to effectively interact with other team members to achieve a goal and to find a common language with different interlocutors and public speaking skills.

Altynay Zamanbekova

NSWMUN is a place that changed me two years ago in just three days. Becoming part of the students, that are exceptional from others, thus creating a unique community of people - is a finding people aroung yourself whose interests are similar, and whose goals are alike – to be a global citizen. Being a member of organizing committee gives an irreplaceable experience and providing opportunities to see the world in an-ever-more-diverse, making together Model United Nations a micro projection of the whole world.

Aigerim Assylkhan

I love the whole idea of MUN. In my mind, supporting young people by giving them an opportunity to learn how to act in an international event is significant. They get practice, knowledge and fun all at the same time. Providing them a platform where they can improve their skills and make new acquaintances makes me happy. Every time when I see how many people are really interested in MUN or any kind of event gives me a hope that our young generation is ready to contribute not only for our country’s prosperity, but also for well-being of the world.
