Security Council

Hi! My name is Riya Kishen and I will be chairing Security Council A at the 2022 conference. I’m from Scotch Plains Fanwood Highschool and this is going to be my fourth year in MUN. This year, while I’m so excited to be chairing, I’m really just looking forward to making some more friends. I’ve met my best friends through this organization and just can’t wait to connect with you guys and learn about all the amazing things you do outside of MUN. That’s always been my favorite part of conference!


Aside from MUN, I’m a little bit of a music nerd. I play the bari sax in my highschool’s jazz band, I sing in the NJ All State Choir, I’m a classical pianist, drum major of our marching band, and I’ve been doing Indian Classical Dance for the past 12 years. This summer, I was lucky enough to participate in the Conference on National Affairs (CONA) with the MUN delegation and can’t wait to bring the experiences and lessons I learned there to conference with you all in January. Hands-down, my favorite movie is Mamma Mia and I am an avid bubble-tea enthusiast -- passionfruit in particular. I can’t wait to finally meet you all at conference! See you soon!
