She has been involved in Model UN since her junior year of high school. Since high school, she has participated in the Model United Nation’s class here at Rhodes, attended two college level conferences, and chaired the Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural committee during MSMUN 2012 and 2013. Rhianna is very excited to chair HRC this year. She has always liked committees related to human rights due to how they coincide with national and international security in surprising ways.
