Crisis: Cabinet 1 – The Patriots
While traditional General Assembly and Specialized committees operate on a static timeline, Crisis does not. Instead, the actions the delegates take directly affect each update and influence the eventual end result of the committee. As such, the strategies to do well in a Crisis committee differ from those of a GA or Specialized. Here are some strategies that have worked for me.
Tom Davies finds it fundamentally weird writing about himself in the third person. It’s a bit like writing your own Wikipedia page (which is something only megalomaniac backbench MP’s and minor actors do) only he’s nowhere near important enough to have one. That being said, Tom is 24 and lives in York. He has a Masters degree from the University of York and is currently a low level wage slave working for the North Yorkshire Police Force. In short, eat the rich.
22 years old and coming from quite an international background myself, I love how MUN conferences connect people from different parts of the world. Studying IR and Global Issues in Nottingham, I’ ve got involved in MUN during my year abroad in Konstanz, Germany. Nottsmun is my first experience to work in the backroom of a crisis, and I am thrilled to be a part of such an amazing conference. Looking forward to November and meeting all of you!
Madison is a second-year history student at King’s College London with an interest in migration, queer issues, and foreign policy. I’ve spent some time working with NGOs such as GLSEN and Za’atar, and hope to continue work with NGOs like these in the future. As a result of my interest in migration, I’m trying (and struggling) to learn Arabic and to improve my Spanish. While I am American born, after a year in the UK I can safely say the Tesco egg and mayo sandwich is my favourite food. When I’m not doing MUN or revising, you can probably catch me either at the local coffee shop writing or with my friends jamming on the ukulele. My favourite part of a conference is always the socials, so if you see me on the dance floor come and dance with me!
Sylvia de Serdio
Sylvia is a 3r year SPS student at the University of York. With her Spanish, Dutch and Peruvian blood MUN is a perfect fit for her. Being very political, Sylvia was thrilled when she discovered GA but, being slightly psychopathic; she tends to prefer crisis. A questionable human being (take that as you’d like), Sylvia enjoys being frequently misunderstood, both by the fact that her main form of communication is sarcasm and by men who love to mansplain; she also loves to compliment other girls in public bathrooms and most of all, she lives to test the limits as she studies exactly how late can she be to places before people start to stop inviting her.
As an active(ish) member of the MUN community, she is really excited about welcoming all of you.
