Avatar the Last Airbender: Earth Kingdom.

Letter from the 

Crisis Director

Greetings to the Earth Kingdom!


My name is Pranav Chugh, and I will be your Crisis Director for this committee. I am a junior at the U, majoring in Political Science and Psychology, and I am proudly serving as one of the Head Delegates for our school's Model UN team. Outside of school, I love playing video games and drinking an insane amount of soda, along with my involvement in Greek life and various community service initiatives.  I have been an avid fan of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series since its inception, and I am not ashamed to admit that I cried while live-viewing the final episode when I was 10 years old.  To me, the series beautifully incorporates more mature themes, such as morals, respect, and pride, and explains them in a way that children can understand and appreciate them, while also being insanely interesting and funny along the way. 


To counter the might of the Fire Nation, we have the Earth Kingdom. I also decided that the best way for the delegates to be engaged is to give them a free world to change the real timeline of the TV series; therefore, the committee timeline will start right before the first episode of the first season.  This allows us to create our own reality and change the course of the entire show, where the actions in the frontroom and backroom will lead to an unexpected ending, which can be either positive or negative for the Earth Kingdom.  If you have any specific questions, please feel free to e-mail me with your queries and I will be happy to help.  I hope all of you in this committee are as eager to solve these crises as I am, and I'm looking forward to a fun-filled weekend!
