Go(a) Away! The Goa Inquisition, 1535
Background Guide coming soon.
Hey everyone, I'm Anya (she/her)! I'm a junior studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and maybe Political Science, and I'm from Santa Clarita, CA (it's where the SoCal Six Flags is, if you're familiar!). I'll be your Chair for the Goa Inquisition committee at UCBMUN; it's an important topic to me due to a lifetime of seeing Indian history misrepresented, my firm belief in the celebration of diversity, and a hope that this might convince my parents to take me to Goa the next time I visit India. I want to see all of my delegates be spontaneous and diplomatic, but I also wouldn't mind a little healthy backstabbing and a few witty puns. Outside of MUN, I like coding cool things, stargazing, learning languages, poring over books, and drinking lemonade. I look forward to meeting everyone and hope you all have a great conference! :)Cheers!

ARHANT GHANTACrisis Director
Welcome delegates! My name is Arhant Ghanta, and I am very excited to be your Crisis Director for Goa Inquisition at UCBMUN XXVII. I am a sophomore from Boston, Massachusetts intending on double majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Political Economy, with a possible minor in Linguistics. I have always loved both STEM and the humanities, especially world history. I cherish exploring underrated and under–discussed topics in history in particular, and believe that learning about such topics is important for becoming a better informed global citizen. Indian history in particular has often been overlooked and misrepresented despite its vast array of fascinating empires, leaders, religions, and cultures. The Goa Inquisition brings together many important themes of human history and I cannot wait to see you all bring this intriguing period of India to life! Outside of school, I enjoy reading, running, studying languages, traveling, and trying new recipes. I look forward to meeting in the spring!Best,
Crisis Director, Go(a) Away! The Goa Inquisition, 1535
