General Assembly

Hi! My name is Durga Venkatesan and I will be chairing General Assembly at the 2022 conference. I am a senior at New Providence High School, and this will be my fourth year in the MUN program. I am looking forward to chairing GA and working with my other officers. I am also very excited to make more friends during this year’s conference! I have met so many amazing people through this program, and some of my best memories of high school were at conference or hanging out with my MUN friends. My piece of advice for first years is to NEVER to not be afraid of reaching out to new people. Conference is always better when everyone contributes and keeps an open mind.


A little about myself outside of MUN: I have been a member of my school’s varsity tennis team since I was a freshman. Recently I became a  third-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a sport I've been doing since I was little. I am also one of the co-editors-in-chief for my school’s literary magazine, and have been a part of the club since I was a freshman.  I like to dabble in art and design, however, I will never understand modern art. Besides that, I love trying new things with my friends and am always looking for a new show to watch on Netflix. Lastly, I can’t wait to meet all of you at conference! See you in January 2022!! :)
