She who brings victory
Boudicca’s Rebellion 59-61 AD
“It is not as a woman descended from noble ancestry, but as one of the people that I am avenging lost freedom...This is a woman's resolve; as for men, they may live and be slaves.”
-Boudicca’s speech at the Battle of Watling Street, AD 61
The year is 59 AD. After a long period of prosperity, King Prasutagus has just died, leaving his kingdom in his will to his wife Boudicca. As the new queen of the Iceni tribe in Britannia, Boudicca has just had her rightful claim to the land challenged by an invading group of Romans, who will stop at nothing to take away her land, liberty, and life.
Now, it’s up to you to gather the might of the members of your tribe and defend your culture, religion, and people from the Romans. Will you have what it takes to topple the might of one of the greatest empires the world has ever seen?
Simon Chanezon is a second year majoring in Political Science from San Francisco, CA. He’s very excited to return to ChoMUN after being AC on the French Popular Front 1936 committee at ChoMUN XXI, where he got to display the full extent of his Frencheness (has he mentioned that he’s also French yet?) On campus he also does research for the student-run think tank EUChicago (hence the political science). During his free time, he works to start his « career » in French rap but mostly he’s busy staring at a blank wall contemplating his poor work habits.
Kat Stefanescu is a second year Political Science major at the University of Chicago. Originally, she is from San Jose, CA.
On campus, she is involved in Model United Nations and a student-run think tank, EUChicago. Last year, she served as an AC on Oh, Canada: The Founding Fathers of the Canadian Confederation at ChoMUN XXI.
As a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority, she tutors weekly at a local elementary school. In her free time, she can be found socializing (instead of studying) in the Regenstein Library.
Jordi Vasquez is a third year in the College, majoring in Political Science and History, from sunny Gainesville, Florida.
This will be his third ChoMUN after having staffed the Tamil Student League at ChoMUN XX and the Twilight of the Tokugawa at ChoMUN XXI and he is excited to be one of your Crisis Directors.
Outside of Model UN, Jordi is involved as a research cohort leader in EUChicago, a student group that conducts research, discussions, and events on EU and transatlantic issues. He is also an avid lover of basketball and eagerly awaits the return to greatness of the Orlando Magic.
