About the Chairs

Mohammad Alzaabi

Mohammad is a third year student at the American University of Sharjah, majoring in International Studies. His first conference was AUS Model Congress 2018 as a delegate in his freshman year. This marked the starting point of a desire to gain more experience and knowledge which resulted in participating in AUSMUN, SUADMUN, WATTMUN, AUDMUN, and CWMUN, all as a delegate, in which he won multiple awards. Mohammad recently participated in Cairo International Model Arab League and chaired in AUSMUN. His experiences were very unique and he is, thus, looking forward to a another wonderful experience in AUDMUN 2020.

Nadin Hossam Mahmoud

Nadine is a Management junior at the American University of sharjah. Public speaking 3 years ago wasnt something she was good at. After her first MUN , she gained alot of confidence and improved her researching skills. After being a delegate & a moderator for a while, she learnt alot about what truly goes into being a great chair, what keeps a committee session going and most importantly having a good balance between being a serious but fun moderator too. She hopes that through her experience she would be able to benefit the delegates and give them an amazing,beneficial and educational experience.
