Chair: Tyler Vo
USG: Aishwarya Natarajan
Topic A: Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing
Topic B: Illicit Manufacturing and Trafficking of Fraudulent Medicines
Committee Type: Dual Delegation
I would like to pre-emptively welcome you to BruinMUN 2017! My name is Tyler Vo and I have the distinct honor of serving as chair of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. As many of you know, UNODC has jurisdiction over a vast range of world issues and I hope you all enjoy researching and preparing for the selected topics.
Born and raised in the beautiful city of Huntington Beach, I have lived my entire life in southern California and traveled an exhausting 40 miles north to pursue a double major in Electrical Engineering and Economics here at UCLA. Now a 3r d year student at UCLA, this will be my seventh year doing MUN dating way back to my glory days in high school. Aside from MUN, I enjoy writing poetry, starting but not necessarily finishing writing books, staying active, exploring music, and striving to be a decent human being.
The topics chosen for this year’s committee are what I believe to be more unique than what is typically debated in UNODC. Debating the topics of money laundering and terrorism financing, as well as the illicit manufacturing and trafficking of fraudulent medicines will encourage delegates to seek innovative and modern solutions for extremely prevalent, yet sometimes overlooked issues facing the international community.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the background guide, this committee, or the conference in general, please feel free to contact me at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I look forward to meeting and working with you all at BruinMUN this year!
