Maria Barnett, Co-Chair
My name is Maria Barnett and I’m a freshman here at Rhodes!
Currently I’m undecided in my major but I’m thinking of possibly double majoring in history and English. I’m going to be the co-chair for the Security Council at MSMUN. I’m so excited and I can’t wait to meet y’all! Model UN was a huge part of my high school experience and I loved every minute of it! I participated in Model UN from my sophomore to my senior year in high school. I was also president of Model UN my senior year. Overall, I attended five conferences in high school at University of Illinois, University of California at Berkeley, and Northwestern University. Having the opportunity to travel to Berkeley and San Francisco California for Model UN was an incredible experience. My favorite part of the trip was visiting the plaque in Muir Woods which commemorates the ceremony that took place after the signing of the United Nations Charter in San Francisco.
Here are some FUN FACTS!
