Meet your chairs
Hailing from Lahore, Pakistan, Waleed is a junior at National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences; majoring in Business Administration. For him, it is a matter of mammoth honor to serve as the Chair for United Nation’s Economic and Financial Committee at University of Oxford’s Model UN Conference. Currently, Waleed is also serving as the Public Speaking Instructor at Lahore College of Arts & Sciences (LACAS). In his years ahead, he plans onto pursuing Diplomatic roles for his country’s Foreign Office.
He strongly believes that a student should pursue Model-UN as an academic compulsion, as it instills patience, negotiating skills, confidence to interact, and acts as a drill that enables one to confront issues at hand on a global level. This entails gaining knowledge on how to reach solutions that expedite conflict-settlement, consensus and tranquility. Apart from public speaking, Waleed is highly fond of reading and writing, and is also a big Sherlock and Harvey Specter fan. He sincerely awaits your presence at this year’s Oxford International Model United Nations.
