Meet the Secretariat
Eliza is a sophomore, majoring in Mathematical Economics in the College of Arts and Sciences and minoring in Marketing and Statistics in the Wharton School. Born and raised in Vietnam until the age of 14 when she moved to the U.S for boarding school, Vietnam has always taken a special place in her heart. On campus, Eliza is a Deputy Director of Penn’s competitive Model UN team Intercol (#1 in North America), and also a member of Wharton Asia Exchange’s Global Markets team, concentrating in Consumer and Retail in Asia. During her freshman summer, she worked as a research assistant for the Penn Undergraduate Research Mentorship (PURM) program in the Department of Sociology. Outside of MUN, Eliza loves to spend her time at her favorite barre studio in downtown Philadelphia or dine at her favorite Philly restaurants with her friends!
Fiona is a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences who plans on studying Political Science, Consumer Psychology, and English. She was born and raised in Philadelphia, so she adores the city and is happy to continue living here as a Penn student. In addition to fulfilling her role as Director-General for ILMUNC Vietnam, Fiona is also an Under-Secretary General for Penn’s high school conference ILMUNC, and the Director of Partnerships for the International Affairs Associations newest outreach initiative. When she’s not working on all-things IAA related, she loves doing the NY Times crossword puzzle, hiking through the Appalachian Trail, and wrapping presents while baking brownies. Being apart of this organization that brings Model UN to students across the world has been an amazingly rewarding experience, and she could not be more excited to kick off ILMUNC Vietnam in May and explore the country!
