The Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary General
My name is Tanner Yamada, and I am a senior 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 remained a large part of my life in college. I have traveled extensively with UCBMUN’s competitive team, and although I love it, I am beyond ecstatic to have ended my term as head delegate. In the very small amount of time that I do not spend on classes or MUN, I enjoy sleeping, eating, and drinking (eating? ingesting?) boba.
Head Chair, The Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary General
My name is David Young, and I am excited to serve as your Crisis Director for the Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary General at UCBMUN XXIV. I am a Junior at UC Berkeley and I am majoring in history with a focus in twentieth century European authoritarian regimes. I consider myself a true Bay Area native, I was born in Danville, California about half an hour from Berkeley - and I have lived in the in the Bay ever since. When I’m not focused on writing my thesis or scheming up new crisis arcs for MUN, you can find me in a coffee shop reading one of my most recent purchases from Moe’s Books or having an existential crisis about my, rapidly approaching, post-Berkeley future. Model UN has been an important part of my life since the beginning of high school and it is the single best organization that I’ve ever had the opportunity to join at UC Berkeley. My best friends that I have made during my time at Cal, as well as all those across the collegiate circuit, are owed to my time in UCBMUN. Having served as the Crisis Director for the UNSC at UCBMUN XXIII, I cannot be any more thrilled to be working with Ad-Hoc delegates, who are without a doubt some of the most creative and coniving people I have ever met. To all delegates up to the challenge offered by our Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary General, I bid you good luck and hope you are excited to see what UCBMUN XXIV has in store for delegates.
