The Secretariat of PMUNC 2019

Benjamin Ryu Secretary-General   Hi! My name is Ben, and I am a sophomore from Seoul, South Korea, considering economics or public policy as possible concentrations. Although I currently live in South Korea, I spent the majority of my childhood in the United States in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Windsor, Connecticut. As such, I am a devout Pittsburgh Steelers fan and believe that the coming season is the season that the Steelers reclaim the Lombardi Trophy. On campus, I am involved with MUN, Club Volleyball, and the Korean Students' Association of Princeton. I am incredibly excited to serve as your Secretary-General of PMUNC 2019!

Martha Yin   Chargé d'Affaires   Hello everyone! My name is Martha, and I am beyond excited to be serving as this conference’s Chargé D'Affaires.

Courtney Cappelli Chief of Staff   Hello everyone! I’m Courtney, your Chief of Staff. I’m a sophomore from California (though, believe it or not, from neither Los Angeles or the Bay Area) and a STEM dropout planning to major in the Woodrow Wilson School. In addition to being a member of the Model UN team here at Princeton, I quite enjoy reading the evidence code with my Mock Trial team, working with the Princeton University Nonprofit Consulting group, occasionally visiting my room to sleep, and spending time with your beautiful and wonderful Secretariat. I can’t wait to see you all in November!

Aryaman Khandelwal Director-General of GA Committees   Hi! I’m Aryaman Khandelwal and I’m honored to serve as your Director-General of General Assembly! I’m currently a sophomore planning on concentrating in Operations Research and Financial Engineering. When I’m not working to get you the best GA experience possible, I compete on Princeton’s MUN and mock trial teams, work as a junior analyst at Tiger Capital Management, and act in Princeton’s South Asian Theatrics company. In my free time, you can find me running Get2Greater, a social venture that uses a novel system of mobile tablets and an app to better deliver healthcare in rural areas of developing countries or talking about public education and pitching a new platform to increase student motivation.
