Jayden Gonzalez
Director of Recruitment and Public 
Relations

    Jayden Gonzalez, a senior at Brewster High School, is extremely involved and passionate about Model U.N., being one of the Officers of Directors of Recruitment and Public Relations. Jayden's interest was peaked when his brother, Kain, pushed him over and over again to join Model U.N. in his freshman year. After understanding the basics, Jayden found a passion for debate and was enamoured by how fun and interesting Model U.N. was and became heavily involved within the club. Asides from Model U.N., Jayden commits to many other clubs, including the National Honor Society, Modern Language Honor Society, and Bear Facts, the school newspaper. Jayden, outside of school, spends a lot of his free time at the gym, playing baseball, writing articles, and cooking with his family. Jayden strives to bring accurate and interesting information to the public with events and news through social media and is extremely motivated to bring in more members to Model U.N. that will hopefully create life long memories just as he has!

Franceska Drejaj
Director of Conferences

Meet Franceska Drejaj, a senior at Brewster High School and one of this year's Directors of Conferences. Growing up in a loud European home, Franceska has been raised in the environment of debate and has loved it ever since she understood the concept of it. Her strong passion is what drove her to join Model U.N. in the first place, and it has easily been one of her best decisions. Aside from debate, Franceska has many other hobbies, such as playing the cello, singing in her school's choir, and acting in her school's dramas and musicals. She also fills her time with her many commitments, as Franceska is the president of Modern Language Honor Society, an anchor for Brewster's morning news segment The Morning Brew, and a sitting member on NYS Governor Hochul's Youth Council. Franceska promises that she is dedicated to the success of BrewMUNC, and she hopes you enjoy the conference just as much as she enjoyed planning it!

Charles Bloss
Director of Crisis and Training

Charlie Bloss is crisis.  That’s it.  Whereas former Secretary General and Charlie’s brother, Henry Bloss, was all about order, Charlie is quite the opposite.  Wherever he goes, mischief and chicanery seem to follow, much to our advisor Mr. Mullane’s dismay.  He will be one of this year's Co-Director of Crisis and Training, serving with fellow junior Ryan Williams.  Charlie has spent 2 years with the club, starting as a Freshman.  Charlie loves to mess up other people’s day, and have fun with it, which is why he’s been drawn to crisis committees, such as serving on the Colombian Drug Trade Crisis Team and taking over the CIS at Pelmun’s Clone Wars committee in late 2020.  Outside of Model U.N, Charlie plays football, throws on the Track Team, and skis on the Ski Team.  He plays the saxophone and is the President of Brewster’s Class of 2024.  He is very excited to serve on this year’s officers and to help train the new members and move the Crisis committees along.

Ryan Williams
Director of Crisis and Training

Ryan Williams is co-crisis director with Charlie Bloss. She has a need to argue against people all the time which is why she was so drawn to Model UN. She started Model UN as a freshman influenced by her cross country teammates. Some of her favorite committees have been the Revolutionary War and the Treaty of Versailles, her favorite thing about Model UN is that anything can happen. She’s been a part of conferences with bird armies that took over the world and that is what feeds her love for it. Outside model UN she is in Mu-alpha-theta, runs cross country, plays lacrosse and is treasurer of Science Honor Society.

Sarah Vaughan
Director of Operations (NAIMUN)

Sarah Vaughan is a Junior at Brewster High School, and, despite only having been involved in Model UN for one year, is one of the Directors of Operations. Sarah's love of meeting new people, learning new things, and debate drove her to get involved in Model UN. After writing a new Treaty of Versailles, United States Constitution, and preventing an Ebola Pandemic in previous committees, Sarah is excited to take the Brewster delegation to NAIMUN LX. Outside of Model UN, Sarah is the Assistant Costumer for theater productions at the High School, a member of the Colorguard for the Marching Band, and a Student Leader for the Gender-Sexuality Alliance club. Sarah’s best advice for new delegates is to dive into their character and have fun! (Oh, and learn what a ‘Round Robin’ means!)

Roderick Cassidy
Director of Fundraising

A sophmore here at Brewster High School, Roderick Cassidy is a Co-Director of Fundraising/Treasury. Though originally joining the club to practice world domination, he slowly warmed up to the collaborative process (as means of world domination, of course.) Throughout his career, he’s destroyed the city of Troy, stopped the Atlantic Slave Trade, and seized control of the entirety of South America. A member of Model UN since freshman year, he’s also an active contributor to Bear Facts, the school’s newspaper. Along with running away from his problems, he runs Indoor/Outdoor Track, along with Cross Country. Roderick is very excited for BrewMUNC, and if this year’s conference starts to fall towards disaster, his lifeguarding skills and dashing good looks will save it. Best of luck delegates!

Sean Carling
Director of Fundraising

Sean is a senior at Brewster High School and is one of the directors of Treasury for the club. He joined as a freshman and developed a love for Model UN. He has a great interest in history and debate. He always likes the fun and chaos that comes with the yearly training conferences. He really enjoyed being crisis for an Avengers: Endgame committee at BrewMUNC and being a delegate for a Russian Revolution committee. Outside of Model UN, he is the captain of the tennis team and a member of the National Honor Society. He is looking forward to raising money for the club's activities and a great year for Model UN.
