Hello delegates – it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you all to Karachi Youth Parliament. My name is John Hussein and I have been working with Karachi Youth Productions since the time that it was founded back in 2013. I am currently the Secretary General of Karachi Youth Model United Nations and will be serving as your academic curator for this venture. To introduce myself I will like to tell you that I am a student at the University of British Columbia, pursuing a degree in Political Sciences. Debate has always been my passion all the way from 2010, I have come a long way from being a prominent member in the Southshore school for A-levels debate society to becoming a semi-finalist at ZUDC(WSDC style parliamentary Debate). Having won multiple awards nationally and internationally I think I have immense experience in the sphere of MUN and debate. It is with great zest that I have taken part in organizing this event, since it is an altogether new concept for the debate cirlce in Karachi. Best of luck and remember – ambition is the first step to success, the second step is action.
