Hisham Fazail

co-chair     hsfazail@gmail.com
Debate and politics have always played a key role in Hisham's life and interests. Having his father as his mentor and teacher helped him learn that debate and argument are about understanding, learning and building bridges, which is what MUN is all about. The rush of adrenaline that he feels while amid a heated argument is unparalleled by anything else, and the joy it brings him to see the house united in a peaceful decision cannot be put into words. What he admires most about MUN is the fact that the next generation is really learning how to take matters into their own hands and solving the issues that matter to them most. Having attended over 10 MUN conferences and chaired 2, It is his pleasure to attend and chair in AUDMUN. He looks forward to meeting all the young and motivated delegates, ready to take on a new challenge.

Currently a fifth-year pharmacy student at the University of Sharjah, Ayeh Wehbe feels honored to be a chair for the UN Women Committee. This year's AUDMUN will be her first Model United Nations chairing, and she couldn’t be more excited to meet all the delegates. Ayeh participated in AUS’s MUN as a GA committee delegate, and she thought it was an enjoyable experience. In her free time, she is usually in the lab researching or binge-watching TV series on Netflix. UN Women is a very strong and powerful committee tackling multiple historical backgrounds and political issues. She is very eager to have a weekend filled with exciting debate. She wishes you all a very successful journey.
