Meet Our Committee Chairs!
The Russia Ukraine Conflict
Hello!! My name is Ava Lanoue and I am a senior at the Woodstock Academy. This is my first year participating in MUN and I have absolutely loved every second of it. I have really enjoyed the entire aspect of Model UN and I love how it makes you think deeper about the topics that are being discussed. I have attended three conferences so far, where I've won the Honorable Mention award at the University of Virginia. I plan on studying political science next year to further my interest in politics and international relations. I am involved in many clubs at school including B club, Tri-M musical honors society, and Newspaper. I am super excited for this conference and hope you all have so much fun!
Hi my name is Evan Rhault and I am a junior at the Woodstock Academy. I was a part of the Model UN club here my freshman and sophomore year, and have been a part of the MUN competition team this year. I attended the WAMUN conference last year and I went to the Brown University conference earlier this year and am currently preparing for Boston University and the University of Chicago upcoming conferences. I will be co-chairing the NATO committee and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish!
Hi, my name is Aly Niemiec and I’m a senior at Woodstock Academy. This my second year in Model UN as well as my second year chairing at this conference; I will be a co-chair for the UNSC committee debating the situation in Haiti. I’ve been a delegate in several travel conferences throughout my two years in places like Montreal, New York City, and Chicago. Outside of MUN I’m pretty involved and hold officer positions in lots of honor societies and clubs. I love to play softball and go on walks with my dogs. I can’t wait to see how this year's WAMUNC comes to life and look forward to meeting and learning more about all the delegates on conference day!
Hello! My name is Lennon Favreau and I am a senior here at the Academy. This is my second year in the Model UN program and throughout these two years I have participated in the SSUNS, NAIMUN, and EmpireMUN conferences. Last year I was a co-chair for WAMUNC and I am so excited to do it again! Outside of MUN I am a member of various clubs and am the captain of both the soccer and lacrosse teams at the Academy. This past fall I was the co-liason for the Leadership Conference at WA through the International Relations class. I am excited for this year's MAMUNC and cannot wait to meet everyone!
General Assembly 1
My name is Ethan Craig and I’ll be your co-chair for this simulation. I am a senior at The Woodstock Academy, and this is my first year of doing Model UN. I love soccer, DnD, and chess. One year ago, I was sitting in your seats. WAMUNC was my first conference and was what really made me fall in love with simulation and debate. This year, I participated in conferences at Brown University, NYU, and the University of Chicago. One of my favorite moments was winning with my whole class, as a team. After so many conferences, I’ve improved my decorum and honed my skills of debate. Based on my experiences, the best advice I could give you is to be confident, and don’t be afraid of sounding stupid. I promise nobody is judging you, as even the best mess up from time to time. So work hard, have fun, and I can't wait to meet all of you!
Hi and welcome to WAMUNC!! My name is Yehor Bezschchasnyi and I am a senior here at Woodstock Academy. I am originally from Ukraine where I was student body president. Here in Connecticut I am a member of amnesty club. This past year was my first year in International Relations and I went to conferences at Brown University and New York University. I am so excited to be your chair and am looking forward to meeting you all this spring! Throughout this conference I am expecting you all to debate your position to the best of your abilities, but I mostly just want to ensure that you will all have fun! If you have any questions please reach out, and I will see you soon!
General Assembly 2
Hey delegates! My name is Davis Simpson and I am a senior here at the Academy! This is my first year chairing at WAMUNC, but I attended as a delegate last year. I am a member of Woodstock's Model UN team and have attended conferences at NYU, UVA, University of Chicago and William & Mary within the last two years. I am captain of two sports teams (golf and alpine skiing), member of multiple honor societies and a participant at many of the amazing clubs WA has to offer, including B Club! Outside of school I love to play golf and I spend my winters coaching ski racing in Vermont. I am so excited for this year's WAMUNC and cannot wait to meet everyone!
