Hello, esteemed justices! My name is Teri Kim, and I am honored to have the absolute, gosh darn privilege of chairing the International Court of Justice at LIMUN XXXIII.
The ICJ serves as the principal organ of international law in the United Nations. Our duties as justices include providing objective and just solutions to disputes between member-states and resolving issues in accordance to preexisting rulings and opinions, in addition to arresting and sentencing unruly delegates in response to requests from their respective committees. Doling out punishments is arguably one of the best parts of LIMUN (besides riveting and intellectually stimulating debate, of course), and I look forward to seeing some creative methods of torture in the form of public embarrasment for clout-seeking delegates. I am sure your Snapchat stories will be teeming with videos of sanctioned borderline misconduct by the end of the conference, and the legends of our escapades will remain iconic for years to come.
If, for some reason, you really wish to know about me, as is the purpose of this godforsaken bio, I shall oblige. Throughout my four years at LAMP, Model UN has played an integral role in the development of my public speaking skills and love for debate regarding global and domestic humanitarian issues and politics. I also participate in mock trial, HOSA, and Interact, among other clubs at school. I volunteer frequently at the Montgomery Zoo and I tutor small, impressionable children for money. I play the flute, the piano, and the cello, and am a member of the Montgomery Youth Orchestra. I run cross country and play tennis for LAMP, but I also enjoy volleyball, despite being 4’11”. Weird, unsolicited fact that no one asked for: anyone with an adult height of 4’10” or lower is considered a dwarf, so I missed out on a bunch of scholarship opportunities by an inch. I eat at Chick-fil-a religiously (lol get it), and I sleep for embarrassingly long periods of time. I watch more Netflix in a day than I study in a semester, and I can not drive, not because I am unable to see over the wheel, but because my mommy won’t let me. I also have a mole on my left arm. I also sound really pretentious so I am going to stop.
I look forward to meeting you all.
