Economic and Social Councils and Regional Bodies



Dear Delegates,

I am so very thrilled to once again welcome you to HenMUN. I am so very pleased to serve as your current Under-Secretary General for Economic and Social Councils this year for HenMUN VII. As a current senior at the University of Delaware, I have previously served as AD for JCC: Kosovo my freshman year, USG of ECOSOCs my sophomore year, and USG of General Assemblies my junior year. After a brief trip to the General Assemblies, I am thrilled to be back working with all of the amazing chairs, ADs, and staff in ECOSOC. First and foremost, this conference is about you, the delegate and we strive to make this an unforgettable social and learning experience during your high school career. 

A bit about me – as previously mentioned I am a current senior at the University and spent my first semester of my junior year abroad in Argentina! When not at UD, I am either somewhere wandering around South America or in my home town of Lancaster, PA.  At the University, beyond HenMUN, I am Chief Operating Officer of my Sorority, am a Student Alumni Ambassador, and I have the distinct pleasure of serving as Treasurer of the Young Professional Sector of the Board of Directors for the International organization FIBUSPAM. 

I am very proud to hold two majors in International Relations (with concentrations in Latin America and development) and Spanish, and two minors in Latin American & Iberian Studies and Women’s Studies. Needless to say I absolutely love being a part of the UD community and the amazing opportunities it has given me to grow academically. In high school, I served as Co-Secretariat and head delegate of my MUN Organization for four years. My focus was in specialized committees but have always had a soft spot for the amazing learning potential there is to have in a ECOSOCS! 

As USG I hope to make this experience for you an unforgettable. My Chairs and AD’s have spent countless hours working to make your committees a BLAST and cannot wait to meet you soon! Throughout the weekend you will watch as your interests grow and change as you make new friends and have your eyes opened to new viewpoints that you previously never would have been exposed to.

Organization Overview


This organ at HenMUN contains a diverse set of committees ranging from criminal justice to science and technology. These committees are typically smaller than General Assemblies but discuss similar types of contemporary issues. The Regional Bodies are also smaller than the General Assemblies but provide delegates with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge concerning one specific region of the world. These committees may even have a crisis element thrown in.
