Dear Delegates,

Welcome to Harvard Model Congress Latin America 2016!! My name is Bryant Yang and I am excited to chairing the Brazilian Presidential Cabinet this year and working with all of you.

The Brazilian Presidential Cabinet forms the core of the executive branch of the federal government, and forms the core team of the President. By simulating the responsibilities and considerations of the ministers of state and advisors in cabinet, you will have the opportunity to debate key issues in the country and consider its implications for the people and your party’s position in the public eye.  The discussions we will have at this conference will challenge you to broaden your perspective and think critically about your own beliefs. This conference will be an opportunity for you to work with other students from across the region to find solutions to some of the biggest problems that face Brazil. As the chair of the Brazilian Presidential Cabinet, I am excited to make this conference not only intellectually engaging for you, but a blast as well!

A little more on myself: I am a rising senior at Harvard studying sociology. Born and raised in the rural Midwest of the U.S. (Kansas, South Dakota, and Minnesota), I’ve found my urban home in Boston. Outside of HMC, I was a part of the Asian American Association and leading a student business on campus. I’ve also studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark during my time in college. I enjoy cooking, playing tennis, and just plopping down with a good book. Please feel free to contact me via email with any questions or just to introduce yourself between now and the conference. I highly encourage you to step into your role by learning more about our topics and staying on top of current events leading up to the conference. I look forward to meeting and hearing from you soon!
