The Secretariat


iva knezevic: co-secretary general

Hi! I'm a sophomore at Fieldston and I've been doing Model UN for almost six years. Model UN has taught me so much, from thinking on my feet to being able to argue for something that I personally don't believe in. Outside of Model UN, I play club volleyball and love science and math. Theo and I have worked together (first leading the middle school club, and now the high school one), since the beginning of our Model UN careers. We are so excited to be running EthicalMUN II and we can't wait for a great two days!
