I am honored to be serving as the Deputy President of the Arab Council at ASDMUN 2018. Debate, politics, and current affairs have long since been interests of mine and MUN is an activity that combines all three. The Arab Council is a committee that has enchanted me since my first conference and I am delighted to be returning to it for my sixth conference. I hope that all of you will be inspired in the same way that I was and choose to pursue and interest in Arab or even global affairs in the future. Welcome to the Arab Council and I look forward to meeting you all for a weekend of lively and fruitful debate.
