Leeandre "Lee" Alexandre is a sophomore at FSU studying International Affairs. Growing up in Naples, FL, and coming from an immigrant household, he has always been passionate about international human rights, and hopes to promote equality in every aspect of his life. The past year was his first year being involved with the World Affairs Program, and was involved with Model UN in high school. In his free time, you can find him binging the latest reality TV shows, using shopping as a form of retail therapy, or simply minding his own business. He can't wait to have a spectacular conference with some spectacular people!
Under Secretary General of Committees
Mary Thomas is a second-year student at FSU pursing a degree in International Affairs with a minor in Chinese. She has been fully committed to the FSU World Affairs Program since her first introduction, and is always excited for more Model UN opportunities! When she is not doing Model UN, she can be seen swimming alongside FSU Women's Water Polo team as their goalie. Mary can be frequently found laughing with her friends in Strozier Library and saying "sorry, I can't, I have Water Polo practice." She is super excited to be on this years' incredible Secretariat and hopes to make this RTC one of the best ones yet!
Under Secretary General of Public Relations
Karissa Hammett is entering her second year at FSU studying International Affairs, Arabic, and Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and she is excited to kick off this year as your Under-Secretary General of Public Relations. When she isn't catching up on the latest events in the Middle-East or learning another language "just because she can", she can be seen dreaming about her next vacation destination and spending time binging crime shows with some of her best friends. She is grateful to have the opportunity to make RTC XXIX an amazing one!
UnDer secretary General of FINANCE
William Fulmer is a sophomore at Florida State University studying Computer Engineering with a double major in History. He has been involved with Model UN since high school, and his excitement towards the collegiate MUN circuit is what has driven William to become your Under Secretary General of Finance. Outside of Model UN, William can be seen hanging with his closest friends or out running about (he once finished a marathon!). He welcomes the adventure of planning a conference and giving our attending delegates a great experience!
Under Secretary General of Conference Logistics
Sydney is a sophomore at FSU studying Political Science and History, and is also pursuing two minors in Art History and Chinese. This is her second year being involved with FSU's World Affairs Program and Model UN. If you can't find her on the first floor of Strozier Library drinking a Strawberry Acai Refresher Lemonade with light ice and no berries, odds are she's either registering people to vote or at home listening to NCT Dream while playing Animal Crossing. She's excited to see you all at RTC, and hopes you have a great time!
