Jay Gopalan

Jay Gopalan

Hello everyone! I’m a senior at Harvard studying mathematics, philosophy, and economics. I’ve been participating in Model UN conferences for a decade in India, Arizona, California, and the Northeast. I’ve chaired a variety of committees on Indian and Pakistani history at Harvard MUN conferences. I’m pretty passionate about teaching and getting to know younger students who like to go above and beyond the academic curriculum. MUN is an excellent format for students to be exposed to ideas outside of school. I’ve also been working with the Colombian Ministry of Information Technology and Communications to teach data science to mid-level professionals in Bogotá, Cali, Medellin, and Barranquilla. One of my interests is studying foreign languages, so if you speak an uncommon language that I’m unlikely to have seen before, please feel free to chat with me! I’m really looking forward to the committee and getting to know all of you this February, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions leading up to committee or you just want to say hi.

Matthew Miller

Matthew Miller

My name is Matthew Miller, and I am a Junior at Harvard originally from Deerfield, Illinois. I study Applied Mathematics with a focus in Psychology, and I am proud to call Quincy House my home on campus. My love for Model United Nations started in high school, when I joined the team and started competing at local conferences in Chicago. Since beginning my time at Harvard, I have competed in three Model UN conferences and directed or crisis directed committees at HMUN, HNMUN, HMUN China, and HNMUN Latin America. Outside of Model UN, I also serve as a campus tour guide and compete on my house’s Intramural soccer and basketball teams. When I have a free minute, I love to listen to reggaeton and bachata music. I am beyond excited for GCMUN, as I know that it will be a conference replete with diplomacy, debate, and discovery. See you during the conference!

Maria Victoria Paredes

Maria Victoria Paredes

Maria Victoria Paredes, known as ‘MVP’ by friends and colleagues, is a senior at Harvard studying Government and History with a focus on twentieth century Latin America and United States legal history.

At Harvard, outside of MUN, Maria Victoria spends a large chunk of her time learning new languages, as she believes a fundamental step in establishing connections with others is breaking down communication barriers. She now speaks five languages including Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian.

You are just as likely to find her fighting for animal rights or translating at an immigration clinic as you are to find her creating social media content or befriending strangers in line at a café. When she isn’t curating her social media footprint, she is dancing to whatever beat she can find or FaceTiming her loud Cuban family back in Miami.

Maria Victoria has previously served as a Committee Director for the Boston-based Harvard National Model United Nations conferences and for Harvard National Model United Nations – Latin America 2018 in Lima, Peru. In 2019, she served as Under-Secretary-General of Operations of Harvard National Model United Nations -Latin America as well as the Director of the Commission on the Status of Women. In 2020, she will return to Harvard National Model United Nations – Latin America for the final time as Secretary-General. She has also served as the Director of the Organization of American States at World Model United Nations 2019 in Madrid, Spain and will serve as the Director of a Specialized Agency at World Model United Nations 2020 in Tokyo, Japan.

She served as the Head Delegate of Harvard’s traveling Model UN team and has been on the staff for conferences in Boston, Madrid, Tokyo, India, and Dubai. She currently serves as the Secretary-General of Harvard’s Model UN Conference in Dubai. When she’s not doing anything MUN related, she enjoys journaling, watching sunsets, going for runs along the Charles River, and volunteering in her local hospital.

Look What Some Had To Say About Us

Don’t just take it from us, let our participants do the talking!

Thank you so much for organizing a terrific conference.  My students learned a great deal and were overwhelmed by the United Nations building, meeting rooms and the magnificent General Assembly Hall.  All of your organizers were gracious and friendly.  As one of the teachers/coaches, I was impressed by the event and all of your efforts.   What a privilege!

Cheryl Blanchet

Faculty Advisor

First of all, thank you for the wonderful experiences my students had at the conference. They all agreed that it was very inspiring.

Eric Cortes

Faculty Advisor

Thank you so much for an incredible conference!  Our school really enjoyed our experience and loved debating at the UN!

Bryce Mattie-Brown

Faculty Advisor

Thank you for a great conference!

Debra Dailidonis

Faculty Advisor

I just wanted to write a quick email to pass on a huge thank you to all the organisers of GCMUN, it was an amazing event, wonderfully organised and a truly unforgettable experience for our students.  In fact they are still talking about it now and are regularly bugging me to sign up for next years conference.

I just wanted to pass on the compliments I have received from parents, students, colleagues and even local media about how wonderful GCMUN turned out to be.  We have moved conferences most years for variey however 2018 will be the first year I will seriously consider returning to the same conference.
Garret O'Sullivan

Faculty Advisor

I would like to first give you an incredible thank you for the opportunity you gave me, my two friends, and all the delegates that participated in this past week’s experience. Along with gaining knowledge of how the UN actually works, and the formalities that go along with debating and what not, I am forever grateful for the friendships that were created between delegates and myself, domestically, and even internationally. I can gladly say that although this was my first GCMUN meeting, it will most definately not be my last! I would like to thank you again for the impact this experience has made on my life. As my two friends and I sat in the back seat of my mom’s car on the way back to our homes, we felt partly empty inside. We agreed it was because of the many friendships we made these past few days, and the harsh, but true fact that we may never see any of these wonderful kids again. I hope to represent many more countries in the future, and debate with fellow delegates on an array of topics.
