About the Chairs

Najwa Hubaishy

chair     [email protected]
Najwa Hubaishy is an AUS Junior majoring in International Relations and Minoring in Environmental Policy. Hubaishy’s interest in politics led her to participate in over 10 model conferences, including MUN and MC. This left her with a broad understanding and knowledge on model conferences and procedures that go into them. Najwa is also the current AUS Model Congress Executive board secretary. She is extremely delighted to be part of AUDMUN for the second time and wishes you a fruitful and productive conference.

Parnika Chaturvedi

co-chair     [email protected]
Parnika is currently a humanities student in Delhi Private School, Sharjah. Aspiring to one day stand amongst the esteemed delegates of the United Nations Human Rights Council, she wishes to acquire a law degree. She could be described as one, with adroitness in leadership, willing to speak her mind and enthusiastic about connecting with new people. MUNs continue to play an integral role in her student life. It has not just refined her public-speaking skills but also has provided her with the opportunity to encounter various issues and enlighten others and her with possible resolutions on an international level. She believes that Model UN helps one grow into a leader, discover their future, become confident in their self, provide one a platform to endorse their self into the pressing matters of the global society and form lasting friendships with people. In addition to public speaking, she adores dancing, reading, and often writing poems. She hopes her work as co-chair makes the AUDMUN’19 an enlightening and memorable experience for all the delegates.

Saif Ali

co-chair     [email protected]
Saif has been interested in MUN ever since he was a little boy growing up in England. Although only hearing about the club at the time, he was able to commit to and participate in MUN once he came to Dubai. Saif has experience in many of the top conferences here in Dubai, including AUD, HMC, and AUS. Saif also has fond memories of his time spent spectating a small conference at the University of Birmingham held by the MUN club at the university. Saif also had many experiences as chairing for multiple mock conferences held at his school and chairing the ECOSOC committee at AUS MUN two years ago. His experience and leadership skills had lead to head the MUN club back at his school, and he continues to learn many things about MUN and politics to this day. Down to the less technical side of things, Saif is an avid MMA and boxing fan and enjoys watching various fights and perfecting his mixed martial arts skills.
