cabinet of napoleon i, 1812

The Cabinet of Napoleon I immerses delegates in the pivotal latter years of Napoleon’s rule. Facing a fraying Russo-French alliance and the inevitable collapse of the Continental System, various factions of the French Empire have been summoned to Paris. As accords and alliances are forged and broken and conspiracies threaten the very life of the sovereign, the fate of an empire stretching from Málaga to Warsaw rests in the hands of the Cabinet.

As a continuous crisis cabinet, this committee is most appropriate for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory, and must be submitted by Sunday, January 13, 2019, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.

Andy Jiang | Director

Andy Jiang is a senior student at Fraser Heights Secondary and is ecstatic to serve as the director for ACC. Since his very first conference, the aroma of placards, note papers, and complimentary hotel pens have entirely seduced his time and interest. Aside from his commitment to MUN, Andy can be found hyping up for Season 8 of Game of Thrones, attempting to beat his high score in the Google Chrome dinosaur game, or intensely watching the newest episode of Master Chef Australia. Whether you are a beginner or veteran delegate, Andy cannot wait to greet everyone at VMUN and promises to provide an experience to be savoured.

Audrea Wang | Chair

Audrea Wang is currently a junior at Port Moody Secondary and is honoured to be serving as Chair of the ACC at VMUN 2019. After attending her first conference in Grade 9, Audrea was immediately drawn to the world of Model United Nations by the fiery discussions about international affairs and the drafting of potential solutions to real-world problems. After attending numerous conferences, Audrea has come to gain not only invaluable public speaking and critical thinking skills, but also a global mindset that has broadened her perspective of the world. Outside of Model United Nations, she also participates in a number of debate tournaments, plays the cello, and endorses herself in journalism. Audrea is looking forward to a successful VMUN and can’t wait to meet all the delegates!

Keely Aquilini | Assistant Director

Keely Aquilini is in grade 12 at West Point Grey Academy. Having attended her first VMUN in 2014, she has grown into a very seasoned delegate with 13 conferences under her belt. After hard work and many hours, she performs to the best of her abilities for tasks presented – this time around it will be on the Crisis staff for the Advanced Crisis Committee. She loves to hangout with friends, play sports, and spend time with her family. By the time that VMUN 2019 rolls by, she hopes that every delegate will have just as much of an enjoyable experience as she did during all those MUN conferences. Whether VMUN 2019 will be your first, last, or only VMUN, she hopes you leave with a feeling of opportunity and newfound friendship. See you in January!
