About

INTERNATIONAL PRESS CORPS

The International Press Corps (IPC) is the only committee responsible for the survival of free press. Rather sit in committee sessions, delegates will observe and report on different committees over the span of the conference. Delegates will not be stationary either, and will instead move through various committees. While the IPC doesn’t have any legislative power, it is important for sustaining the spread of knowledge. To succeed in this committee, delegates need to be able to put aside their own personal opinions; they are no longer a teen from Washington — they are a reporter, responsible for sharing the news with the global community. This committee is ideal for both experienced and new Model United Nations delegates. If public speaking is not your forte but you are interested in global politics and learning more about writing as a reporter, the International Press Corps is the committee for you. Freedom of press is not something everyone has access to — use your voice to help those who don’t.

Zoe Schenk

Director

Zoe Schenk is a senior at Inglemoor High School in the IB program. She’s been a part of the MUN community since the beginning of her sophomore year. Since then, she has served as Director of UNHRC for KINGMUN, USG of Committees for both PACMUN and KINGMUN, Secretary-General for PACMUN 2018, and Co-Secretary-General for KINGMUN 2019. Model UN is very important to her. If she isn’t stressed about reading over background guides, you can find Zoe stressing about applying to college or finishing schoolwork on time. On the very rare occasion that she isn’t stress-researching, she can be found petting her dog, hanging out with friends and family, or reading. She can’t wait to bring the International Press Corps to the Washington circuit for the first time!

Nicole Turtle is a currently a senior at Inglemoor High School and will be serving as the chair to the International Press Corps (IPC) at this year’s SeattleMUN conference. Currently co-president of the Inglemoor Model United Nations club, she has been a part of the MUN family for three years. She is also the AP style copy editor of her school newspaper, Nordic News. Nicole believes that MUN provides delegates fresh opportunities to explore and debate international matters as well as bring students closer together from across the nation. She is thrilled to staff the IPC at SeattleMUN 2019 along with Zoe and hopes that delegates will enjoy researching their news organizations topics, writing up articles and learning what it means to truly be a reporter.
