Group of Latin America and the Caribbean 2020


Background Guide Coming in Jan. 2020


Parth Nobel

Welcome to UCBMUN XXIV! I am an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science major, an intern at Apple, a former intern at HP Inc., and a former Editor and Webmaster of the Berkeley Student Journal of Asian Studies. I also do research on non-linear dynamics and the use of analog computation on approximating NP-Hard problems. I was raised in Poway, CA where I co-founded our local high school's MUN team. In the little time I have not writing code, doing math, at MUN, or sleeping I get deeply confused about how I have free time and proceed to read fantasy books and play Dungeons and Dragons.

I am elated to have the opportunity to return as a Chair to UCBMUN, and even more elated to be facilitating debate on how Latin America will continue to grow into a better region of the world. Can this committee lay out a framework for an ever growing regional economy? For ensuring regional stability? For preventing refugee crises before they occur? I am optimistic that we'll hear new ideas and create a new vision for the region.

Yours,
Parth Nobel

Kenny Kang

I am currently a senior in UC Berkeley, studying Peace and Conflict Studies and Political Economy. After having been in this club since my freshman year, I have to say that UCBMUN has become like a family to me with individuals who are truly inspiring and caring. I was born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up there till I was nine years old. Afterwards, my family and I moved to China and lived there in several different provinces for the next eight years. My hobbies include exploring new areas with friends, playing video games, watching oddly specific documentaries, and hanging out with my girlfriend. I am honored to serve as your co-chair for this committee, and I promise to do my best to facilitate constructive and engaging debate. Latin America’s future has so much potential as a new decade comes around the corner, but in order to move forward, its countries must come together to solve key issues. I look forward to seeing how this committee comes together to form innovative solutions and promote negotiations.

Yours,
Kenny Kang
