UNSC: Russian Intervention in Latin America

Head Chair: Tanner Yamada

Crisis Director: David Young


Background Guide Coming in Dec. 2018


Dear Delegates, I’m very excited to welcome you all to UCBMUN XXIII, and to the United Nations Security Council in what promises to be a dynamic and fast-paced committee.

My name is Tanner Yamada, and I am a junior at UC Berkeley majoring in chemical engineering and minoring in electrical engineering and computer science. I hail from the perpetually warm and sunny Manhattan Beach, just to the south of LAX. I participated in Model UN for four years in high school, and it has remained a large part of my life in college. I have traveled extensively with UCBMUN’s competitive team, and I am serving as head delegate this year. In the very small amount of time that I do not spend on classes or MUN, I enjoy playing flute in UC Berkeley’s orchestra, sleeping, eating, and arguing with my housemates.

I look forward to seeing you all, and please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Dear Delegates,

My name is David Young, and I am excited to serve as your Crisis Director for the United Nations Security Council at UCBMUN XXIII! I am currently a sophomore at Berkeley and I am majoring in political science and history with a focus in twentieth century European history. A true Bay Area native, I was born in Danville, California about half an hour from Berkeley - and I have lived in the area ever since. When I’m not focused on school or MUN, you can find me in a coffee shop reading one of my most recent book finds from Moe’s Books or studying for the LSAT. MUN has been an important part of my life since the beginning of high school and I am excited to continue on the university circuit. I am thrilled to see what you all come up with to alter the course of debate at UCBMUN XXIII, good luck to you all!

If you have any questions about how crisis will be run, please reach out to me at dtyoung@berkeley.edu.

Sincerely,
David Young
