Head Chair, JCC: Pinochet’s Military
First and foremost, welcome to UCBMUN XXIV! My name is Jesse Sommers and I will be serving as your Crisis Director for the Pinochet’s Military bloc of the JCC: Allende Government vs. Pinochet’s Military! A little about me: I’m a Junior majoring in Political Economy, originally from Southern California, and aspiring to move abroad or join the PeaceCorps following graduation before ultimately returning to pursue higher education. I also have an identical twin, and when I’m not doing Model UN you can catch me hiking the Berkeley Hills, feeding my caffeine addiction, studying Chinese on the stairmaster, or planning my next trip. This is my 3rd year in Model UN, the 3rd time I’ve served as staff for a JCC, and the 2nd time directing crisis! I’m especially interested in this committee since it allows us to focus on the intersection of international and regional politics, as well as tackle ethics and ethos in a time of conflict. Looking forward to seeing all the creative and dynamic arcs y’all come up with come March! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns!
