The Cabinet of Felipe Calderón is made up of the advisors, allies, and colleagues of one of Mexico’s most defining leaders. This powerful group is responsible for making critical decisions within a tenuous atmosphere of rampant crime and political instability. Along with facing domestic challenges from drug lords, corrupt authorities, and a dysfunctional federal administration, Cabinet Secretaries will be tasked with guiding Mexico into the 21st century as a rapidly-developing nation and emerging regional power on the world stage.

FCC will follow CAHSMUN’s official Rules of Procedure for crisis committees, meaning actions will be taken via either private or public directives. Felipe Calderon’s Cabinet is an advanced committee, featuring fast-paced developments and a high level of debate. Thus, this committee is only open to the most experienced and competitive of delegates. Position papers are mandatory for this committee. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.

Questions, inquiries and position papers for this committee can be emailed to fcc@cahsmun.org.


BACKGROUNDER will be available soon


Omar Kassam

Omar Kassam | Director

Omar is in grade 12 at St. George’s School and has the distinct honour of serving as the Director of the Cabinet Crisis Committee. Having delegated and directed several other crisis cabinets, Omar is excited to create one of the most challenging and exhilarating committees ever at CAHSMUN and promises that the committee is in the hands of a history expert. Outside of Model UN, Omar can be found attempting to learn Latin, binge-watching political dramas and satires, and reading dystopian novels. He is also an avid plane enthusiast and enjoys exploring both the private and commercial facets of aviation. With the conference drawing nearer and preparations for the committee ongoing, Omar can’t wait to meet the delegates and get the crises underway.

Jonathan Song | Chair

Jonathan Song is a grade 12 student at Vancouver College. He is ecstatic to be part of CAHSMUN 2019 serving as Chair of the Cabinet Crisis Committee. Over the span of two years, Jonathan has attended nine conferences, each being unforgettable experiences. At his first conference, Jonathan was captivated by the heat of debate, the creativity of ideas, and the energy delegates displayed. He left that conference inspired and knowing that he will return. In school, Jonathan plays for the Vancouver College tennis team and participates in numerous student leadership teams. Outside of school, Jonathan struggles to finish the common app. MUN has given Jonathan unique opportunities to connect with others and engage in global issues. Jonathan can't wait to create a similar, meaningful experience for delegates. He looks forward to a conference filled with active participation, engaging debates, and satisfying resolutions.

Jennifer Tsai

Jennifer Tsai | Chair

Currently, a grade 11 student at Fraser Heights Secondary School, Jennifer is ecstatic to be serving as a chair for the Cabinet Crisis Committee at CAHSMUN 2019. Initially, she joined MUN as a timid 9th grader seeking to conquer her fear of public speaking. However, after reluctantly raising her placard at her first conference, she can confidently say that MUN has offered her so much more than just the skill. Not only does MUN immerse her in the fascinating realm of global issues and diplomacy, but it also allows her to engage in leadership and form friendships with like-minded individuals. Outside of MUN, Jennifer can be found avidly involved in various clubs at her school, choosing which Spotify playlist to study to instead of actually studying, or stress-eating dark chocolate. In her leisure time, Jennifer enjoys hanging around in aesthetic coffee shops, catching the sunset in her neighbourhood, or watching the latest episode of ‘World of Dance.’ She hopes to make CAHSMUN a memorable experience for beginners and veterans alike!
