Sara Toofail Ahmed Vidha

co-chair     [email protected]
Sara Vidha is a sixth former with science as her main interest. She is delighted that her delegates have decided to spend their time, during a crucial period, where they will be faced with the pressures of academics and simultaneously strive to work harder as they all compete in promoting the agendas of their allocated nations along with working hand in hand with their peers to provide a longstanding, majority consensual solution. During the three days of the conference, she hopes that her delegates all grow into better versions of themselves, as they network, confide, plan and execute. She hopes the best for your preparations and looks forward to a fruitful and excellent debate as well as efficient state-craft throughout this conference!
