Welcome to Harvard Model Congress Dubai! My name is Jeewon Lee and I’ll be chairing the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee this year. I'm very excited to be a part of your HMCD experience.
A little bit about myself - I'm a senior at Harvard studying Government, and I hope to go to law school in the future. I was born in Seoul, Korea and raised in Manila, Philippines. I've staffed HMC conferences in Boston, Hong Kong, and Seoul. I'm so excited to staff the Dubai conference for the first time!
As delegates of the Senate HELP committee, you will be engaging with a variety of issues that not only impact the daily lives of many Americans, but are also relevant to many other countries in the world. This year, for example, one of the issues that we will be addressing is gender pay inequality. I hope that you will use your time in committee to think about, present and debate potential solutions to pressing issues such as these. I also hope that, in the process of doing so, you will be able to engage in meaningful conversations that you can genuinely learn from.
I look forward to hearing all of your ideas and opinions in Dubai! As your chair, I aim to help make your HMCD experience as intellectually stimulating and fun as possible. If you have any questions before January, please feel free to reach out to me.
All my best,
