Inessa Talks Politics with Model UN Club

By Ms. Jenise Boland, Senior School Social Studies Teacher & Model UN Coach 

It was standing room only on Tuesday, September 28, as our Model UN club welcomed guest speaker Inessa De Angelis, Special Assistant  to the Office of The Honourable Joyce Murray, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Quadra. Along with her list of impressive credentials, Inessa is also a proud WPGA alumni (Class of 2018) who began her career in politics by racking up volunteer hours within the senior school service program—at age 16, Inessa volunteered with various political offices. After graduating from WPGA, she attended the University of Ottawa, earning a double degree in Communications and History. Next year she will begin her Master of Communication while continuing to work with the Hon. Murray. 

As our Model UN students prepare for the upcoming VYMUN conference, it was wonderful to hear from a fellow Grey Wolf who is passionate about politics and deeply immersed in the Canadian political system.
