Hey y'all! I am honored to be ODUMUN President for my senior year. I am a Political Science Major with Environmental Management and Geography Minors. My goal this year for ODUMUN is for everyone to feel comfortable and confident with themselves and their public speaking skills. If you are new to MUN and hate public speaking, that's where this incredible staff becomes your best resource. MUN is a safe space for everyone, with extra brownie points for those who love in-depth and interesting debate! Email me with any questions about the society or general MUN questions you might have!
I am a senior majoring in Political Science and Philosophy and minoring in Psychology. After graduation I plan on attending law school to study Civil Rights Law. Model United Nations means everything to me, and I am so grateful to be serving as Secretary General again for the 2022-2023 academic year. It is an honor to be working with our Director General, Sophie Rofheart, and the rest of the ODU Secretariat this year to put on another amazing and successful ODUMUNC!
I'm a junior majoring in International Studies and World Languages & Cultures, with a minor in Women's Studies. My goal is to pursue global conflict resolution and human rights work, as I am fascinated by learning about global communities and the nuances which connect them. I'm so excited to be your Director General for ODUMUNC 46, and to see what innovative solutions you all create this year! Alongside MUN, I love making art, finding new recipes to bake, and exploring Norfolk with my roommates. If you ever have any questions - or baking recommendations - please reach out!
I am an ODU senior, double majoring in German and International Studies, and minoring in Arabic and History. I am very much an overachiever when it comes to academics! My pronouns are they/them, and I am the Secretary-Treasurer. I have been with ODUMUN ever since my freshman year back in 2019, and they have all become my closest friends. The favorite memory I have from MUN would probably end up being SRMUN this last year, as we were given the hard task to represent North Korea/DPRK. I hope you get to interact with many individuals during our first in person ODUMUNC since 2020!
College Conference Coordinator
I am a Junior at Old Dominion University and the current College Conference Coordinator, or Head Delegate, of the society. As College Conference Coordinator, I plan ODU's Model UN attendance at intercollegiate conferences, train our delegations, and manage all the travel. My favorite MUN memory is goofing off with my best friends from high school at my last conference (which you should not do). Belgium and Egypt were meant to be one country, was my takeaway from that experience.j
Under-Secretary-General for Crises
Hello! I am a sophomore at ODU and I am double majoring in International Studies and French. I joined MUN to develop my public speaking skills and I fell in love. I hope to go to graduate school in international politics and work with states abroad to help international cooperation. MUN has helped me understand why policy resolutions take so long to do. Prepare for the most pedantic people ever seen. But the pedantry has a purpose. I have learned more from MUN than many of my classes. I hope everyone can learn as much.
Under-Secretary-General for Large Bodies
Hello! I'm an Ocean and Earth Science major here at ODU in my second year. Last year I was welcomed into the society with open arms, being given the chance to travel, win awards, and hone my public speaking and debate skills. Yet the most rewarding part of MUN by far has been the friends I've been able to make and accompanying healing I've been able to undergo. This year, I'm honored to serve as the Under-Secretary-General for Large Bodies, where I'll have the chance to ensure others have the same experience I've had since joining Model UN.
Under-Secretary-General for Specialized Bodies
Ludan M. Ahmed
Hello friends! I am a senior at ODU double majoring in political science and international studies, and on track for a minor in Arabic. I am USG of Specialized Agencies and Small Committees this year for ODUMUNC. I have participated in Model UN for a culmination of 4 years. My favorite part of MUN is travel and long-lasting friendships, both at school and while competing. MUN has helped me learn more about myself and gain confidence as well as a tremendous passion for diplomacy - I can't wait to see that same passion build with delegates at ODUMUNC.
Under-Secretary-General for Staff
This is my 4th year of college and my 2nd at ODU, I'm majoring in political science. This is my second year with MUN and I'm the current Under-Secretary-General of Staff, responsible for recruiting and managing all the ODU students staffing our conferences. My favorite thing about MUN is the ability it gives you to meet an abundance of new and incredibly cool people!
Student Activities and Public Relations Coordinator
Hey everyone! I am a junior studying History and Asian Studies, with minors in Chinese and Political Science. In the future I plan on doing research in China and eventually becoming a professor of Chinese history. I joined Model UN because of my interest in the history behind international relations and I wanted a chance to improve my public speaking abilities. Besides MUN, I enjoy riding my Kawasaki, lifting, reading, watching the Sopranos, playing video games and skiing in the winter. I'm here to help and answer any questions you may have, feel free to contact me whenever!
I am a junior studying Political Science and minoring in English. I will be ODUMUN's Assistant Secretary-Treasurer for the 2022-2023 academic year. I have always enjoyed debating and with joining Model UN I have been able to see the world from many perspectives. In my free time I enjoy reading, thrifting, and finding new music. I look forward to attending conferences as well as meeting new people!
