Welcome to DISEC
Words of Wisdom from the Chair
My name is Sabrina Ostrowski and I have the pleasure of being your Chair for the Disarmament and International Security Committee of MariMUN 2011. Before talking business, let me introduce myself. I am asecond year Commerce student at Marianopolis College, and alsocompleting the International Studies Certiﬁcate. I am originally fromPoland, however I am a born and raised Canadian, eh. It is fair to say thatModel UN, and international politics overall, take up a big part of my life asI am this year’s President and Head Delegate of the Marianopolis ModelUnited Nations Club. My Model UN experience is thorough although short-lived: in 2 years I will have participated in 8 conferences, including that of WorldMUN, held in Taiwan and Singapore in 2010 and 2011, respectively.Besides ModelUN, I spend most of my time either playing soccer, watching hockey, or pointlessly spending money shopping.
This year’s DISEC General Assembly will be, in my
unbiasedopinion, the best committee at MariMUN 2011, and I hope you’re allexcited for it. My Vice-Chair, Paul Kalash, and I are greatly looking forwardto witnessing the intricacies related to our two topics: Landmines and Small Arms Trade. Both subjects were carefully selected due to their complete andutter relevance to today’s society, as all nations of the world are affected bythem. Composed of over fourty nations, our committee and time togetherwill surely challenge your cerebral activity and fuel your innovation, but alsosatisfy your need of excitement. If you have any unanswered questions, feelfree to contact me through e-mail.
Great things have been planned for you, Ladies and Gentleman.Prepare to experience a GA like never before!Sincerely,
