Kerry is delighted to welcome you to ShawMUN 2019! As a grade 12 student at Shawnigan, Kerry has been participating in the world of Model United Nations for the past three years. After a plethora of conferences as a delegate and staff, Kerry has since developed a true passion for Model United Nations and the values it embodies. Her best memories from past conferences are the never-ending midnight crises, and participating in heated debate. Outside of Model UN, Kerry can be found skiing, hanging out with her friends, and studying for Calculus. Whether is it your first or last conference, she hopes you have a weekend filled with newfound friendships and rich debate. She is honoured to serve as the Secretary General for ShawMUN Victoria 2019, and can’t wait to meet you in April!
