About

Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti

The Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti, also known as the KGB, is a specialized committee where delegates are faced with the impossible task of re-establishing the formerly dissolved Soviet Union. It is highly encouraged that delegates who wish to be a part of this committee be experienced in dealing with an advanced crisis committee as this committee will be moving at a fast pace with many surprising twists and turns. Delegates in committee will be tasked with navigating an extremely complex crisis plot by decoding mysterious ciphers, completing challenges, and exploiting their luck in order to re-establish the former great soviet union territory. But be weary delegates, for if you are caught publicly conspiring against the Putin regime the punishment would be worse than death. Good Luck.

Position papers are due on November 7 at 11:59PM PST to your committee email: kgb@pacificmun.com.

Dais Members

Mei Houts
Director

Mei Houts is a senior at the International Community School of Kirkland, and she is honored to serve as Director for KGB at PACMUN 2020. MUN has helped her make incredible memories and meet amazing people over the past 3 years, and she has enthusiastically participated in many conferences in the area, attending as a delegate as well as serving as a staff or secretariat member on numerous occasions. Outside of MUN, she can be found participating in more clubs than she can probably handle, attempting to complete her AP art portfolio, volunteering at Evergreen Hospital and bothering her cat. She is absolutely delighted in the amount of creativity KGB has allowed her to employ, and she truly believes that delegates will have an experience like no other in this highly specialized crisis.

Ritvik Vasisht
Chair

Ritvik Vasisht is a Junior at Eastlake Highschool in Sammamish, and he is very excited to be your chair for PACMUN 2020. He originally joined Model United Nations to learn about diplomacy, but Model United Nations offered him so much more. It offered him a safe place to voice his opinions and meet new people. Ritvik hopes that he can offer the same experience that he was given the first time he stepped into a committee. In his spare time you can see Ritvik participating in public forum debate and in Robotics. He can not wait to meet you all!

Eric Song
Assistant-Director

Eric is currently a junior at Nikola Tesla STEM HS. He started doing Model United Nations in his freshman year and the first conference he ever attended was Kingmun 2019. His favorite part of MUN is the position paper writing, because it really puts his research abilities to test. To him, there’s nothing like poring through countless magazines and webpages, searching for the crucial evidence needed to pack a serious punch of a sentence. In his little free time, Eric likes to play European football, listen to true crime podcasts, debunk paranormal videos, and practice the newest highground retake in creative. In this coming conference, Eric is committed to making sure delegates have a good experience throughout the entirety of the committee sessions in which he will be present and active for.
