| USG of Committees
Tianna is a Grade 11 student at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver, BC. Her first ever conference was just last November, at the first iteration of Lion’s Gate Model United Nations. From her first time standing up to make a speech in the World Health Organization committee, Tianna was thrilled by the debate, negotiation, and inspired delegates within the world of Model United Nations. Outside of researching current world events or completing homework, Tianna can be found arguing with her peers about philosophical theories or political systems. Otherwise, she will be in the theatre rehearsing lines for the next school production. She is beyond honoured to serve as the USG of committees at LGMUN 2019.

Ash Alguneh is a recently emeritus delegate after starting his Model UN career in the 7th grade. Hailing all the way from Houston Texas, now attending Collingwood, Ash developed his love for international relations over the years and through Model UN, honed his debate, public speaking, and diplomacy skills. Model UN to Ash has been a guiding light in his life. He recalls from a very early age his love for the idea of countries and their interaction with one another. Model UN has given Ash an outlet to express, expand on that passion, and meet incredible people like his sec team members. In his free time, one can see Ash reading the news, playing tennis, badminton, or passing a frisbee with his friends. Ash hopes that all delegates enjoy their time at LGMUN 2019!
