Fictional Crisis Committee
The Future Crisis Committee (FCC) differs from other committees in that it deals with problems that could arise, rather than ones that are or already have arisen. Delegates must use creativity and cunning to solve crises; there is no historic example to follow.
FCC is a continuous crisis committee, and as such, is recommended for advanced delegates. Position papers are required for this committee and are to be emailed to the committee director.

A grade 12 student at Little Flower Academy, Maya is thrilled to serve as director for the Fictional Crisis Committee at VYMUN 2021. Since starting her foray into the wacky and wonderful world of Model UN at VYMUN 2019, she’s fallen in love with the fast-paced atmosphere and thrilling twists and turns of crisis committees. When she’s not locked in a committee room, Maya enjoys binging British murder mysteries, unabashedly unicycling around her neighbourhood, and spending her life’s savings on secondhand books. In her final year of high school Model UN, she is thrilled to have the chance to work with you all, and hopes to present formidable challenges and (if her delegates succeed) satisfying resolutions.
A sophomore at St. George’s School, Prad has the distinct honour of serving as the co-director of the Fictional Crisis Committee at VYMUN 2021. Since embarking on his Model UN journey in Grade 7, Prad has been fascinated by the enriching debates, friendships and long-lasting memories. Whether trying to stay awake during midnight crises or motioning for universal health for the United States of America, Prad frequently finds himself reminiscing in these memorable experiences. Outside of the committee room, Prad can be seen biking around Richmond, working on his cricket skills, reading weird stats about the NBA or trying to find a good TV show or book to immerse himself in. Prad is eagerly looking forward to a weekend of exciting and engaging debate and diplomacy.
Richard is currently a junior at Burnaby North Secondary and is ecstatic to serve as the Chair of the Fictional Crisis Committee at VYMUN 2021. Despite his hesitant beginnings, each additional conference brought out more and more confidence, whether that be in the form of unnecessarily dramatic secondary speeches or creating blocs during roll call. As one of his favourite extracurriculars, MUN has expanded his scope of both local and international events, allowing Richard to meet a plethora of interesting people. In his free time, Richard can be found standing on his balcony at night, struggling with chess puzzles, and memorizing useless information. Richard looks forward to a weekend of spectacular debate, complete with its fair share of humorous moments, and cannot wait to meet you all this October.
Currently a junior at West Point Grey Academy, Jeffrey is honoured to serve as the Chair of the Fictional Crisis Committee. Ever since his first conference in 2017, Jeffrey has felt a strong calling for the world of MUN, he is strongly passionate about the debates, negotiations, and discussions that take place at each conference. When Jeffrey isn't discussing pressing global issues, you can find him immersed in the world of music. He plays the double bass and the guitar. Jeffrey is thrilled to see all of you in October!
Currently in grade 11 at Richmond Christian Secondary School, Joseph Yeh is ecstatic to serve as the Assistant Director of the Fictional Crisis committee at VYMUN 2021. Though only entering the Model United Nations community slightly prior to the pandemic, the style of debate and several aspects that revolve around every topic drew him to love MUN, creating knowledge, friendships, and skills along the journey. Outside of MUN, Joseph enjoys watching Netflix, adventuring with friends, and swimming competitively. MUN holds a special place in Joseph's heart as he believes that it is a solution to the political apathy that currently plagues the world. Through VYMUN 2021, he hopes to help delegates understand foreign affairs, as well as helping them develop the skills to express their own views on global affairs. Virtual conferences may have been the normal last year, but VYMUN 2021 promises to reinvigorate the MUN experience.
Justin is currently a Grade 12 student attending Hugh McRoberts Secondary School and is delighted to serve as the Assistant Director of the Fictional Crisis Committee.

During his free time, Justin can be found avidly studying obscure geometry configurations, playing chess and binge-watching anime. Justin looks forward to a weekend of rousing debate and hopes that VYMUN 2021 will be a memorable experience
