2022 Secretariat

Secretary-General: Emma Brandt (any/all), 3rd Year

Hi! My name is Emma Brandt and I am a third-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.
