This is Ravi, Head of tech and design.
He techs. He designs.
He's kinda like the head of both those things.
He can usually be seen with his camera, and likes to shoot people. (not literally)
(Ravi's Edit: Sometimes I wish I literally did)
Ravi likes to YouTube in his free time (Ravi's edit: I also do in my not-free time) , and words associated with him are sarcastic, hilarious, creative and talented.
He aspires to be a film maker, and we're sure we'll see him make it some day.
When he's not discussing memes or the intricacies of jokes, he's probably watching Sherlock or spouting his opinion about some film or TV show.
He'll see you at the conference, at least his camera will.
Abhinav seems normal enough at first glance. However it's when you get to know him that you discover that he's one of the most uniquely humorous, efficient and good-natured people on the Secretariat.
Pola, as he is known to us, has been building websites ever since his tenth birthday, and has been doing a very commendable job at it. He is a hardcore athlete with a love for football and basketball. So, Pola plans to up the 'game', this conference, with his handy tech skills. In his free time, Pola is either a 'haxer' as he calls himself, or a logo designer.
He hopes to ensure you have a great experience with CHIREC MUN.
This year, CHIREC has left the judging to the IP Team, and the rest to a new department- Information Services. This consists of the conception of everything one would read about the MUN: The Executive Board, The Committees, and most importantly, The Secretariat. This job requires that special tact for words, that faculty to introduce through text and that flair for language, all of which present themselves in Manojna Potturi.
Manojna has been an IP Member in various MUNs and has had a frighteningly high winning percentage. She has been an honorary correspondent of the Times of India, Co-Head of the Literary Committee and is currently working on publishing her own book of poems, a tangible translation of her blog, www.thoughtflare.blogspot.com.
Manojna is obsessed with writing poems and reading all sorts of books, loves singing songs ranging from Coldplay to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, has a scary addiction to the number 7, plays basketball surprisingly well, will kill to protect her puppy, Simba and relates to Charles Lamb on a personal level because you can't tell where her sentences begin and end. Most of all, she's the most outgoing person one would meet, so please feel free to contact her to ask for advice on poetry, pictures of Simba, or just to make a friend. Also, apply!
A lover of indie, electropop music and a Word Shaker, Sakshi Ahuja has the ability to turn anything into art, though, one may not comprehend what she's trying to convey through her various forms of art. ( To be brutally honest, sometimes, she doesn't either.)
A true flower child, she is a perfectionist and will settle for nothing less than her vision of the result. Her practical mind and ability to empathize with people are what he holds close, as they are what make her special. She believes in magic more than she believes in people and sometimes when she's walking on her own, she finds herself ardently hoping that she will stumble across Hogwarts, finally.
When she isn't speaking about the various fandoms she's fallen prey to, Sakshi is probably thinking about her next Instagram post or of course, outwardly smiling dreamily, as she envisions what to eat in a while.
A dreamer, Sakshi Ahuja, the Deputy Head of Informative Services, is here to make this MUN more than just debate, but one that is magical and unforgettable.
Vinay Kanumuri is now a household name. A recipient of the Cambridge outstanding learners award, Deputy Head Boy, President of the Interact Club, the unstoppable Vinay is now the Head of Finance in CHIRECMUN 2017.
Not only smart, Vinay also is the definition of a Nice Guy; the best part of the CHIRECMUN for him, was his role in the initiative to train a delegation from Devnar School for the Blind, for CHIRECMUN 2016. Those weeks spent explaining foreign policy to students who surpassed all expectations despite their disability, made Vinay appreciate the platform that the CHIRECMUN is- one for everyone.
These days, Vinay can be found with three of his friends- The Manned Octocopter Team, endeavoring to make one of Asia’s first manned multirotor aerial vehicles. They need all the support they can get, so please do check it out. (http://facebook.com/mannedoctocopter/)
Vinay's involvement in the organization of multiple clubs and school events have made financial planning natural to him. He is excited to serve as the Head of finance and hopes to ensure that CHIRECMUN 2017 offers the best possible experience to all delegates in and out of committee.
Feel free to message him for any help or if you just wanna talk about memes and the depressing state of American politics.
Sakshi Marda is a bubbly person. She can't help it; she's always been a beautifully joyful person.
Apart from being so good at being positive, Sakshi has another strength- her analytical mind.
Sakshi is a purely logical and rational person, who excels at problem solving. Her love for numbers helps her be great at dealing with them. Sakshi is a quick learner, and can tackle tough situations effectively.
Broadminded in her approach, Sakshi also has the rare ability to analyze situations from various perspectives, to ensure a vantage point for herself, when it comes to finance.

Adhiraj Bhagat is a young man of many varied and eclectic tastes. His artistic endeavors, musically, culinary, theatrically and visually, define a major part of his personality. His inclination towards and interests in the field of science have caused him to lean towards pursuing a career in aeronautical engineering. Recently, he went as far as to actually learn how to fly! As a perfectionist, he wants his work to be immaculate and precise. And of course, he manages to do so. As your Deputy Director General, he'll carry out his tasks to the best of his ability and make sure to deliver.
When popularity is a basis for distinction, chances are, it's keeping Devansh Jain Pokarna in mind.
A 12th grade student studying A Levels at Chirec, Devansh seems to have way too many contacts, and that's exactly what we love in a Head of Sponsors. Devansh is a social, genial and determined person, who likes to get his way, while ensuring that everyone has fun. Staying true to his personality, he aspires to be a businessman.
Popular for his lame jokes, which still earn a few laughs, his showy lifestyle and his readiness to try new things, Devansh is the life of the party, and in this case, the conference.
Although he has his fun, Devansh is extremely serious when it comes to a job that he's assigned, as he recognizes the importance of sponsorships to an MUN. His love for numbers and his almost frighteningly effective skills of persuasion, make him the unanimous choice. As the Head of sponsors, he is looking forward to making the conference a memorable one for all the delegates.
Every conference needs that imaginative charismatic dreamer. And CHIRECMUN has Anya Parikh.
The Head of Marketing for CHIRECMUN 2017, Anya is a little bundle of joy. Beware though, she says she's got the power of a Karate expert, while maintaining the grace of a dancer.
Anya has that will power and dedication of an aspiring lawyer, which helps her make her case. And right here, right now, she says that the CHIRECMUN will be an opportunity that no one should miss. Case closed.
She's full of imagination , and believes that the best way to have a good idea, is to have a lot of ideas. She is also always ready with her game plan, and is a perfectionist. She's always ready to help and people love her so much because she's humorous, approachable, and well, loud.(Last one, kind of negates the previous two.)
She loves her Beatles Classics, but also loves a little bit of Arctic Monkeys.
Anya hopes to make this conference wonderful, more like a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (Yes, she's got the spelling correct) experience for everyone!
What more could you possibly want in your head of marketing?
Flawless is a stong word. It's not merely- devoid flaws, it's being perfect, in every single way possible. And it's not easy to say No to a flawless person. In fact it's impossible. And hence, Chaitanya Yammanur has never heard the word No. Pretty good for the Deputy Head of Marketing.
This probably seems intense, but everyone who's met Chaitanya would agree. Not only is she a loving and a lovable person, she also has an outstanding sense of humor. She's always smiling, and spreading her contagious grin to others, beware.
Chaitanya's enthusiasm is translated efficiently into her work, and her drive makes her immune to any obstacle that dares to oppose her.
She is a very talented dancer, but will drop her dorky moves occasionally, to help the rest of our self esteems. Chaitanya is also a huge bookworm and has a soft spot for mystery novels.
She enjoys meeting new people and is eager to do so at the Chirec MUN 2017. So do apply and make a friend who's worth it.
When it comes to being known to everyone, and we mean literally everyone, Meher Sood has no competition whatsoever.
Her extremely friendly, cheerful and positive personality makes it easy for her to be liked by everybody. And that's why, we are undoubtedly confident in trusting her with any issue regarding delegate relations.
Meher is dedicated, enthusiastic to do all the work given to her, knows many English words that she doesn't really comprehend the meaning of, and is, according to herself, 'very photosynthetic'. She works hard and works smart, and will ensure that your experience at CHIRECMUN 2017, will be fantastic (except for her almost pitifully bad puns, which aren't very MUNdane, but you'll have to endure). So do apply!
To capture a moment is the brain's way of storing and savoring moments that cannot and should not be forgotten.
Or you could just call Nandika.
Nandika Chatterjee has always had a special place in her heart for photography, and will not disappoint in making an unforgettable moment even more beautiful through her admirable skill, whether it's with a very expensive camera, or with her iPod.
Nandika also enjoys writing and reading and is constantly blown away by fine literature. As if these aren't enough already, Nandika also plays basketball, repetitively leaving the crowd awe-struck with her magic 3 Pointers.
Nandika's love for reading, and her wise insights make her the epitome of what the International Press aims to be.
So apply for IP, people, and you'll make a great new friend.
If you hear a sarcastic remark that cracks you up though it's pretty mean, chances are there is a Chinmay in your proximity.
Witty, knowledgeable, and mildly entertaining, Chinmay Vivecananda Addepalli is the Head of Logistics of the CHIRECMUN 2017. When you can't find him going through memes, he's probably making one. An enterprising young man with the indomitable courage to take Math, Biology, Physics and Chemistry, Chinmay can roast anyone, anytime and anywhere.
Driven seems to be a word that still falls short of describing him. Whether he is organizing an MUN or meeting new people, he is his energetic and enthusiastic self, delivering only the best. His passions range from doodle art to telling stories with an almost artistic brilliance. As the Head of Logistics for CHIRECMUN 2017 he is ready to ensure CHIRECMUN 2017 will be one of the best conferences you will attend in your life-time.
IB tends to drive some to insanity. And some just seem to dive right in seemingly effortlessly. Sahana Rayan is one of those divers. Apart from her extremely analytical approach to situations, she is also brilliant at planning and executing, both of which are imperative in a Deputy Head of Logistics.
Diving seems to be everything Sahana is about, for she is also a skilled swimmer. She will make sure that she POOLS her resources and makes her DEEP thoughts a reality to keep the conference AFLOAT.
As a deputy head, she'd like to improve the quality of accommodation and food. Yes, we said food.
Sahana is also a surprisingly good memester, and she'd like very much for everyone to visit her meme page, and while they're at it, just go ahead and apply for the CHIRECMUN, 2017. It's going to be dank.
Sreya Aluri is probably one of the most outgoing people you’ll meet. A great leader, she loves working with a team that she constantly encourages with her optimism. Deputy Charge D' affaires, Sreya is the best candidate for this position due to her unwavering passion for perfection. Her main interest lies in uncovering the mysteries behind everything and -being the perfectionist she is- settles for nothing short of 'everything'. In her free time Sreya loves watching TED talks and Sherlock, dancing to both Western and Indian songs, teaching, listening to slam poetry, cycling, swimming and playing basketball.
Charge d'affarires. A sophisticated title, for an equally sophisticated person.
Varenya Reddy is one of those people that possess the uncanny ability to speak like a wise old woman and also an extremely friendly 12th grader, which she actually is.
Varenya is one of those people that seem to be able to fix anything, which only adds to her charm as a confident, capable and caring person.
Her approachability and dependability come from her love for meeting new people and really getting to know them (And subsequently fixing their problems, while she's at it.)
With a passion for words, both written and spoken, Varenya is, indeed, a connoisseur of three languages. Don't be fooled by her friendliness though, she speaks a fourth language with equal fluency; sarcasm.
When she's free, which is a lot less often than she'd like, Varenya enjoys reading, playing the piano, and hanging out with people, whom she knows or has just met.
At least she'll get to do one of these things at the CHIREC MUN, 2017. So, be there. It'll be worth it.
The second Doshi on The Secretariat for the OC, is none other than Priyal Doshi, CHIRECMUN 2017's Deputy Head.
Priyal's ambitious nature is what lets her get jobs done quickly and efficiently. Her productivity is her best quality. Systematic and hardworking, Priyal never fails to be professional in her work, and is hence the perfect choice for anything regarding organization.
Currently studying in Grade 12, her favorite subjects include Biology, Legal Studies and Chemistry. She's an avid reader, and has a soft spot for books by John Grisham and Sidney Sheldon.
She is extremely passionate about writing, and has attended a fair share of MUNs in the past 3 years.
As the Deputy Head of the Organizing Committee, she assures you that CHIREC MUN 2017 is going to be an incredible experience.
Everyone's always so eager to help when it comes to a school MUN. Sometimes, a little too eager. And so, it is Vaishnavi Verma's job, as the Head of Volunteers for this year's CHIRECMUN, to manage and direct them, to achieve the maximum efficiency possible.
Vaishnavi loves helping people though her benevolence could cause a potential hindrance to her own routine. She believes in trying something new everyday, be it starting a new TV show, listening to a new genre of music or even learning a new language.
She loves organizing events and working in a group, to bring out the best in each and every person.
She would love to help you all at the CHIRECMUN 2017, this July!
To really bring out the richness of culture, the MUN requires Akshita Kalidindi. A 12th grade student in the IB program, Akshita is as dedicated as she is entertaining, as efficient as she is hilarious and as important to the conference, as a ball drop is to New Year's Eve.
Akshita is the kind of person that one needs in stressful situations, to ease the tension as well as come up with rational solutions.
Akshita has been associated with the Chirec MUN for 4 years now, working behind the scenes, ensuring that it all comes together magnificently.
Akshita, apart from making peoples' guys hurt from laughing, with her hilarious antics, also loves to bake and binge watch TV shows.
The previous Deputy Head of the Cultural Committee, she knows how to have a good time and will make sure your experience at CHIREC MUN is filled with fun.
