Deputy Secretaries-General

Stephanie Kannimmel

I would like to offer a warm welcome to all participants of this year’s MYMUN XV Conference. My name is Stephanie Kannimmel, and I am honored to be serving as one of the Deputy Secretaries General for MYMUN XV.

I was first introduced to Model United Nations in 2012, attending my first conference by serving as the Delegate of Kuwait for Environment-II. Due to the unforgettable experience I had at my first MUN conference, the passion and dedication I developed for MUN has led me to attend a total of 13 international MUN conferences throughout Singapore, Malaysia, and The Netherlands.

Having been a part of MYMUN for the past five years, I can guarantee that MYMUN XV will continue to uphold and exceed the high reputation it has built over the past 14 years by providing delegates with a platform to diplomatically and meaningfully engage in debate on hand-picked committee topics reflecting real-world issues. This year’s leadership team will be working tirelessly to ensure that MYMUN XV provides an unforgettable experience for all participants, igniting their passion for MUN and allowing them to see the world from a new perspective, as MYMUN has and still continues to do for me every year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at stephaniekannimmel@mkis.edu.my. I look forward to meeting all of you at MYMUN XV!

Ismail Zulkephli

I would like to welcome all participants to MYMUN XV. My name is Ismail Zulkephli and I am honored to be serving as one of your Deputy Secretary General.

I have participated in Model United Nations ever since my first conference in 2013. Since then I have participated in 10 conferences and chaired in 4. I am very excited to be able to share one of my passions with all the participants of MYMUN XV.

I have participated in 4 MYMUN conferences in my MUN career and each experience was better than the last. I hope that me and the rest of the secretariat team can replicate the success of the previous MYMUN conferences and produce a lasting, memorable experience for all participants. With the combined efforts of the Secretary General, Samuel Ng, and my fellow Deputy Secretary Generals, Stephanie Kannimmel, Daniel Chavez and Catalina Bonasif, I am confident that we can reach the high standards we set for every MYMUN conference.

If you have any questions or concerns about payments or any aspects of the conference itself, please don’t hesitate to contact me at zulkephliismail@mkis.edu.my. I hope you choose to attend this prestigious conference and I look forward to meeting all of you next spring.

Daniel Chavez 

Hello everyone! My name is Daniel Chavez and this year I will be serving as one of your Deputy Secretary Generals alongside Cata, Ismail, and Stephanie and our Secretary General Sam.

In my MUN career I have had the privilege of attending THIMUN Hague as a panelist, THIMUN Singapore as a delegate, and our very own MYMUN conference as a chair. I have discovered through my experience that each committee has unique, fascinating, topics to debate.

This will be my 4th year participating in the MUN club and 4th MYMUN conference. Having participated as a delegate, chair, and admin in the conference, I am making a jump to Deputy Secretary General and I couldn’t be less excited. I am honored and ecstatic to be working in the Secretariat team for the MYMUN conference this year. Through effective collaboration and hard work, I hope we can maintain the high standards set by our previous conference and additionally strive to improve it.

If you have any questions about admining, chairing, serving as a panelist in the APQ or participating as a delegate, I am always accessible through danielchavez@mkis.edu.my. I hope to see each and every one of you there!

Catalina Bonasif-Fidalgo

I would personally love to offer the sincerest greetings and welcoming to every delegate, chair, admin staff, director, press team member or any other individual involved to MYMUN XV. I am Catalina Bonasif Fidalgo and it is a privilege to be able to participate in the conference as part of the secretariat team. As a Deputy Secretary General, I wish for all participants to look forward and, most importantly, enjoy the involvement of the conference.

My first experiences in MUN were since young (age 12), so the club, activities, and everything that is involved in between holds a rather nostalgic meaning to me. MUN has taught me several abilities to me, from teamwork to public speaking. Every conference I was able to participate in has been eye-opening, always allowing me to learn more about myself, others, and the world.

As a previous participant of MYMUN, I can speak for the secretariat team that this conference will live up to all the successful years we have hosted as a school. We thank every single individual who is contributing and working for this conference to become possible. Just like MUN has opened new doors for me, I wish MYMUN will serve its purpose of creating a memorable and productive experience.

Any means of contacts personally towards me can be directed at catalinabonasif@mkis.edu.my. I would be honored to answer any inquiries or doubts, likewise to the rest of the Deputy Secretary Generals. We hope to see you there!
