Survival of Nixon: Nixon Administration
Note: This committee is one half of the Joint Crisis Committee titled Survival of Nixon.
Background Guide will be released in January 2021.
Esteemed delegates! My name is Mihir Nayar, and I will be your Chair for the Nixon Administration in the Joint Crisis Committee (JCC) at this year's UCBMUN. Richard Nixon was one of the most controversial Presidents in the history of the United States. In an era where many questioned and criticized the jurisdiction of the American government, his administration tackled many pressing domestic and foreign issues. During this committee, I hope to see lots of lively debate, creative ideas, and diplomatic partnerships between delegates. Currently, I am a sophomore at UC Berkeley studying Statistics & Economics. I've had several experiences with staffing and competing at MUN conferences on the collegiate circuit. Outside of MUN, I work an on–campus job at my university in the performing arts, write articles for a journal about international business, and serve as a fundraising officer for the table tennis club. In my free time, I really enjoy studying with my friends, eating different Asian snacks, walking around campus, and listening to Bollywood music. I can't wait to welcome you all to San Francisco for a fun and memorable weekend!Best,
Chair, Survival of Nixon: Nixon Administration
Anthony JorgeCoordinating Crisis Director
Hello, honorable delegates! My name is Anthony Jorge, a sophomore intending to study Public Health, and I will be serving as the Coordinating Crisis Director for the JCC, the Survival of Nixon, this year. The 1970s were a tumultuous time in American history. Coming off of the civil rights high of the ‘60s, the ‘70s saw a number of social and political crises that would test the nation in unexplored ways, and I'm excited to see how delegates on both sides of the JCC will respond to these issues. Outside of MUN, I enjoy movie nights, sitcoms, trying to understand Cher's Twitter account (her tweets have layers), and a good book. I was born and raised in Fresno, California and can often be found explaining the intricate details of the shared Fresno experience to the uninitiated. A good smile goes a long way and I hope to share many smiles with you all throughout the course of this committee.

Qazi AhmadCrisis Director
Greetings! My name is Qazi Ahmad, and I will be your Crisis Director for JCC: Nixon's Cabinet in this year's UCBMUN. I am a third year majoring in Molecular and Cell Biology, with an emphasis in Cell and Developmental Biology. Outside of MUN, I am currently involved with community–oriented work through a few different organizations as well as trying to learn another language. In my free time, I love trying to cook or bake new dishes, spending too many hours playing Paradox grand strategy games, and trying new ice cream flavors. My favorite part of MUN is committees reenacting parts of history, and I am beyond excited to see how you rewrite and reshape the Nixon years in this committee.Best,
Crisis Director, Survival of Nixon: Nixon Administration
