Secretary-General: Emma Brandt (any/all), 4th Year

Hi! My name is Emma Brandt and I am a fourth-year International Affairs and Modern Languages major with a concentration in French and a minor in Law, Science, and Technology. While I grew up in Williamsburg, VA, I actually went to high school just outside of Athens, GA (THWg). Other than Model UN, I’m a member of Greek Life and frequent attendee of Open Mic nights hosted at our very own Wrek Radio (91.1 FM!). In my free time, you can find me writing songs and poems or analyzing my friends’ astrological charts (I’m a Libra Sun, Sagittarius Moon, and Gemini Rising, FYI). I’m so excited to serve as your Secretary-General this year and can’t wait to see what amazing resolutions you write in October. For any questions about GTMUN, the conference, or Tech in general, you can reach me at ebrandt7@gatech.edu.

I am so pleased to be working with a talented Secretariat this year, each member of which is driven and passionate about making this conference as fun and fulfilling an experience as possible. Take some time to meet our team; we hope you’re as excited for GTMUN 2022 as we are.

Outside of Model UN, I am in Engineers without Borders, work at the biomedical engineering design shop on campus, and am a TA for a computer science program. When I’m not working on anything school or extra-curricular related, you can catch me shopping at Target and Trader Joe’s, drinking coffee, or convincing my friends to watch holiday movies year-round with me!

I also enjoy reading (usually memoirs!) or working on a crafty DIY project that I probably am not going to finish. This will be my first time serving on a Secretariat, so I am super excited for the experience and to work with all of you in October!
