Adam Dawood


Currently in Grade 10 at West Point Grey Academy, Adam is delighted to be co-directing the Historical Crisis Committee. After his first Model UN experience in Grade 7, Adam has taken every opportunity to participate in conferences in Vancouver, Seattle and even Montreal. Aside from MUN, he can also be found competitively debating and building robots that never seem to do anything productive. Adam looks forward to a weekend of exciting debates and cooperation at VYMUN 2019!

Emma Miao


Currently a sophomore at West Point Grey Academy, Emma is thrilled to serve as your co-director for HCC at VYMUN 2019. After attending this very conference three years ago, she fell in love with the pragmatic debate and diplomatic nature of Model United Nations and has since seized every opportunity to get involved. Attending MUN conferences has not only allowed her to gain immense knowledge about complex global issues but also has introduced her to an incredible community of intelligent, outspoken people, some of whom are her closest friends. In her spare time, Emma enjoys reading the New York Times, rewatching Sherlock, and swimming (slowly). Please don’t hesitate to contact her if you have any questions. She looks forward to meeting all of you in October!

William Tsai


William Tsai is a junior attending St. George’s School. He is glad to be serving as Chair for VYMUN’s Historical Crisis Committee. From its engaging debate to the complex politics of the world itself, Model UN has captivated William since Grade 7 and since then, his passion for Model UN has only grown. Having attended numerous different conferences since joining Model UN four years ago, William wishes to spread his passion of MUN to all of his delegates. During his free time, William is often found advocating for the international recognition of Taiwan, competing in schoolreach, and drinking bubble tea. William is looking forward to an entertaining and memorable committee and hopes the committee will be a great experience for all delegates.

Sam Bendl

Assistant Director

Sam attended his first VYMUN conference in grade seven, four years ago, and later left with a stomach ache caused by overconsumption of fudge. Sam found out about HCC last year and fell in love with it. He has always enjoyed history and aspires to instill a love of history in his delegates by combining fun and history together in the upcoming VYMUN conference. Outside of VYMUN he has a Portuguese Water Dog and enjoys video games, reading, and history. Sam looks forward to witnessing the betrayal and twists that last years HCC was filled with and made it so fun.
