DESCRIPTION

Unlike any other Model United Nations (MUN) experience, delegates of the International Press Corps will be representing different news agencies and writing articles that reflect their agency’s biases and writing styles. Reporters will have the chance to act as a third party in other committees to report on their progress, efficiency, and debate flow among other things.

Journalists have an array of techniques at their disposal to write the best articles: interviewing other delegates, participating in Q&As (both answering and asking questions), talking to committees about emerging crisis, and possibly even writing articles on IPC itself. Delegates who wish to join IPC should enjoy writing in general. Although being in IPC may seem like a lot of work, which it is, it is, nevertheless, an amazing experience.

The International Press Corps (IPC) is a unique committee that offers an unconventional experience designed for experienced delegates and particularly those with strong writing skills.

STAFF

Matthew Cheng
Director

Matt is a senior at St. George’s School and is thrilled to serve as the Director of IPC at CAIMUN 2019. His passion for international affairs began five years ago, when he walked into committee session for the first time and proceeded to speak a total of two times. However, since then, Matt has delegated and staffed at many conferences in the Lower Mainland, exploring new resolutions and meeting new people. Outside of Model UN, Matt can be found operating his taxi service for his friends who reside in Surrey, directing guests to the nearest washroom at the PNE, and reading his biology textbook. Matt hopes to create a unique and unforgettable experience for all delegates at CAIMUN 2019!

 

Angelina Zhang
Chair

Angelina is a senior at Crofton House School and is ecstatic to serve as the Chair of IPC at CAIMUN 2019. As she enters her fifth year of high school MUN, she is both surprised and relieved to say that even with her short attention span, she has not yet grown bored of this activity. On the contrary, she has become increasingly captivated by this world of intense debate and diplomatic affairs, and is astounded by how it never fails to offer something new and exciting. Outside of MUN, Angelina enjoys very long naps, very old Disney shows, and very short trips to the gym. Angelina cannot wait to meet everyone at the conference and will strive to make it a weekend to remember!
