It is always a pleasure to preside over the General Assembly, as it is the apex of all committees. We have free reign to address social, humanitarian and human rights issues around the globe. I look forward to having a constructive debate.
I was born and raised in Delhi, finishing my 12th grade from Bishop’s Junior College in Pune. The MUN circuit has been a part of my life for the last five years. I’ve done over 20 conferences representing a wide range of countries and portfolios in various committees. Along with my friends, I also run our school’s MUN Society. In addition to MUNs, I also participate in debate competitions.
Conferences aside, I enjoy trying out new variations of coffee at new cafes and failing at latte art. I enjoy capturing moments and sharing my opinions online. I anticipate some non-MUN related debates as well.
You can contact me anytime with questions about the MUN, and I will be more than happy to assist you.
See you in committee!
ChairP: General Assembly
My name is Omkar Mantri and I’m ecstatic to be chairing the United Nations General Assembly at VMUN 2022!
I am a twelfth grader at Bethany Junior College studying ISC Commerce. When I am not obsessively listening to music, I enjoy dabbling in poetry, online journalism, coding and writing. I had discovered the Bangalore MUN Circuit a few years ago, and have fallen in love with MUNs ever since.
Having experienced the workings of VMUN up close, you can trust me when I say that you are in for an unforgettable edition of debates and discussions. MUNs provide a packaged education in diplomacy, nuance and composure. You will traverse the caveats and hurdles of international law, find yourself up against allies and foes alike, and you will deal with it all with grace and civility.
The United Nations General Assembly’s mandate covers a plethora of pressing global issues, to which end you will find yourself stimulated and challenged.
Make sure you speak the truth and give it power in your committee sessions. Never back down from a tough fight. If you feel nervous or underprepared, remember that we all started somewhere.
Excited and look forward to seeing you in committee.
Chair: UN General Assembly
