Officers

Get to know our officers! Scroll down to see some of the students who helped to put this conference together, and learn a little about their background with the club.

Jasmine Cabral
Secretary-General 

Jasmine Cabral is a senior who has been in Model UN since mid-freshman year and is honored to be serving as this year’s Secretary General. Having previously served as a Director of Conference, Jasmine is slightly biased when she says BrewMUNC was one of her favorite conferences this year. Throughout this eventful year she’s gotten to create a sentient lemur as RuPaul, plan a successful Fyre Festival with her bestie Paris Hilton and get stabbed 19 times by a fellow officer as Tybalt. Along with taking part in Model UN, Jasmine likes to draw and spend her money on free games like VALORANT so she can write essays on her skins later (and get a 100, mind you). Model UN has greatly helped her with public speaking and debate as a whole and she can’t wait for the 2021-2022 MUN year.

Angelika Tyhansky
Director of PR, Recruitment, and Training

A senior in Brewster High School, Angelika is one of this year’s Directors of Public Relations. Although originally joining her freshman year out of sheer fascination by geography, over the years, she has learned to love Model U.N. for all of its properties, including the unique (and usually deranged) people the club is comprised of. Although she had a blast visiting New York City for CMUNCE her sophomore year, her favorite committee to date may very well be BrewMUNC II’s Yugoslavia Wars, in which she operated as the vice-chair. Apart from debate, Angelika enjoys playing the violin, studying sign language, and painting. She is also the president of National Art Honor Society, the president of Science Honor Society, and the student leader of Ursus. She hopes for a fantastic year of MUN that everyone will enjoy and is determined to make it happen alongside the officers!

Riya Gupta
Director of PR, Recruitment, and Training

Riya Gupta is a sophomore at BHS this year. In Model United Nations, she is one of the two Directors of Public Relations, Recruitment, and Training. This is her second year in MUN and she loves the club so much! In addition to Model UN, Riya is a member of Democratic Congress, Robotics, Mu Alpha Theta, and other various clubs. Some of her hobbies include shopping, skiing, and traveling. From Model United Nations, Riya improved her communication skills and learned to not be afraid to reach out to others; she has greatly improved as a result when it comes to public speaking. Due to her experience in Model UN, she can observe and understand varying opinions because of the different dynamics between delegates in conferences. Ultimately, she has gained new friendships because of the club that she is grateful for. Joining MUN has impacted her a lot and she encourages anyone who is interested to definitely try it out!

Mattie Fitzpatrick
Director of Conferences

Mattie Fitzpatrick is a senior at Brewster High School and is currently serving as one of the two Directors of Conferences in Brewster’s Model UN Delegation. She’s been apart of Model UN for four years now and continues to take on the most ridiculous roles possible. Some of her favorite roles are King Louis XVI in the French Revolution (in which she became the king of Siberia) and Persephone in an Ancient Greek God Committee. Outside of Model UN, Mattie is an avid member of Brewster’s newspaper staff, field hockey team,and spring musical. She’s excited to help run BrewMUNC this year and hopes you can make it!

Daniel loves listening to music and collecting vinyl records on the side, as well as playing video games like VALORANT with his friends. Daniel’s favorite position was being a crisis member in the Intel vs. AMD committee at the recent BrewMUNC conference, as well as representing Arun Gawi in the Mumbai Gang committee at BrewMUNC 2019. Daniel has learned the aspect of chaos during crisis committees, and the effort in leading and collaborating with his other crisis members. Daniel is very excited to look over crisis operations at this year’s BrewMUNC conference!
