The First King: Kamehameha's Council of Chiefs
Background Guide will be released in January 2021.
My name is Gamin Kim and I am honored to be your Chair for The First King: Kamehameha's Council of Chiefs at UCBMUN XXV. I am a junior at UC Berkeley majoring in Political Science and minoring in Data Science. This is my third year on the circuit, and I have previously served as a Vice Chair for one of the crisis committees for UCBMUN XXIII and the Chief of Staff Internal for UCBMUN XXIV. Other than UCBMUN, I am also involved in research on campus and Delta Phi Epsilon, the foreign–service professional fraternity. I love cooking, hiking, and listening to podcasts when I'm not busy with coursework. Kai and I cannot wait to see what will happen in committee and are looking forward to witnessing the Council of Chief's plans for the future of the Hawaiian islands. The history of Hawaii is largely overlooked, and I hope you will learn more about it with me by researching before coming to UCBMUN XXV and by being part of this committee this February.Warmly,
Chair, The First King: Kamehameha's Council of Chiefs
Kai SmithCrisis Director
My name is Kai Smith and I am excited to be your Crisis Director for The First King: Kamehameha's Council of Chiefs at UCBMUN XXV. The islands of Hawai'i are well known for their tourism and coffee, but behind the beautiful appearance lies a history of warfare and struggle. I'm excited to see how you all balance conquest and culture while trying to transform the young warrior Kamehameha into Hawaii's first king. Outside of MUN, I am studying Chemistry and Bioengineering while also balancing outreach work in Oakland targeted at students of underprivileged communities interested in STEM. In my free time, I enjoy reading fantasy novels, playing animal crossing, and metalsmithing. I am looking forward to a fast paced committee that combines the rich culture of Hawai'i with ingenuity and purpose.Yours,
Crisis Director, The First King: Kamehameha's Council of Chiefs
