  Diana Tang   Chargé d'Affaires   Dear Faculty Advisors and Delegates, I'm Diana, your Chargé D'Affaires. I'm a   sophomore at Princeton deciding between the Linguistics or Woodrow Wilson majors (with a minor in Spanish!) after realizing that computer science is really just not my thing. When I'm not working on PMUNC, you can find me dancing in Six14 Dance Company, designing for the Daily Princetonian, or wandering aimlessly on Nassau street with a Starbucks frap in hand. Above all, I'm looking forward to seeing you all during PMUNC!

  Nick Jain Director-General of  GA Committees   I’m Nick, and I am incredibly excited to be serving as your Director-General of General Assembly Committees. I grew up in Princeton, New Jersey, and made an emotional move of a total of fifteen minutes from my house to campus, where I am a sophomore majoring in either the Woodrow Wilson School or Economics. On campus, I am an avid ping pong player, a proud deputy captain of the Model UN team, a fellow for the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding, and serve on the Undergraduate Student Government Committee for Diversity and Equity. In my spare time, I am the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of JÜV Consulting, a youth consultancy firm dedicated to giving teens a voice in the business world and making companies attempts at marketing to Generation Z less cringey. See you in November!

  Nikhita Salgame   Director-General of Specialized Committees   Hi everyone! My name is Nikhita, and I am very excited to serve as your Director General of Specialized Committees! I’m a sophomore from Princeton, New Jersey, majoring in either public policy or politics (despite which I made the questionable decision of suffering through computer science last semester). Before starting at Princeton, I spent 9 months living in China as part of the university's gap year program. Now on campus, I am a member of Princeton's US-China Coalition, compete with our MUN team, serve as Secretary for the International Relations Council, and balance the moral deficit these activities create by working with a sustainability group Greening Dining and tutoring at El Centro, a community organization in Trenton. This will be my 6th PMUNC (after 4 as a delegate in high school)! Really looking forward to meeting you all!

Princeton International Relations Council

  Bozhidar Stankovikj President   I'm Bobo, a confused junior born and raised in Macedonia. I'll probably be majoring in public policy, with minors in environmental science and teacher prep. My proudest achievement at Princeton is probably being the founder (and more or less only member) of the Macedonian society, which has quadrupled in size since the beginning of the year. I'm incredibly excited to serve as the President of Princeton's International Relations Council, and am looking forward to disrupting my usual routine of work, naps and longing for the return of Yugoslavia.

  Gabriela Pitten Treasurer   Hey everyone! My name is Gabriela Pitten. I grew up in the south of Brazil in a city called Porto Alegre and I went to an international school there where I was first introduced to Model UN. At Princeton I’m a senior majoring  in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, with certificates in French Language and Culture and in the History and Practice of Diplomacy. Whenever I can pry myself away from MUN, I’m also an Orange Key tour guide, a Residential College Advisor, and I teach English at a Hispanic cultural center in Trenton. I’m so proud to see how much the team evolved in the past few years.
