Welcome to MSMUN! We love meeting new delegates and advisors every year during the conference, but we would love for you to feel as though you have met us personally before the conference takes place! Read our biographies to learn a little bit more about us.
Secretary General: Emily A. Perry
Hello Everyone! My name is Emily Perry, and I am once again serving as your Secretary General here at MidSouth Model United Nations. I am a senior at Rhodes majoring in Russian Studies and minoring in both International Studies and Economics. On campus, I serve on leadership with Reformed University Fellowship, work as the Rhodes Student Associate for the Study Abroad office, and am a barista at our coffee stand: The Middle Ground. This is my fourth and final MSMUN conference, and I’m determined to make it the best one yet. Being the Secretary-General for the 37th and 38th MSMUNs is no small task, but I am confident that the team we’ve assembled to guide you through Model UN won’t let you down!
International Studies Department Student Associate: Meredith Kendrick
Hi, my name is Meredith Kendrick and I am thrilled to be the Rhodes Student Associate for the Rhodes College Model United Nations team, and by extension, MSMUN! I am a junior at Rhodes from San Antonio, TX (Go Spurs Go!) majoring in Business and International Studies. This is my seventh year being involved in Model UN, and third year with MSMUN. On campus, I am involved in Lecture Board, CSO, and SOWAT.
Undersecretary-General: Sara Taylor
Hello! I’m Sara Taylor and I will be your Undersecretary General this year at MSMUN! I’m from Mobile, AL and I am a junior this year at Rhodes. Majoring in International studies, I am also involved in other campus organizations such as First Book Club, Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature, and as secretary for Alpha Omicron Pi. I’m so excited for this upcoming year!
Undersecretary General of Crisis: Jennifer Weissman
Hello all! My name is Jennifer Weissman, but you can call me Jenn— most of my friends do. Last year, as your assistant director of crisis, I was blown away by the way the crisis delegates interacted with and worked through their given crises. I’m so excited to serve as your Undersecretary General of Crisis this year and once again see the amazing work you do! Aside from my two years of MSMUN, I’ve been involved in MUN conferences for eight years now. The past two years of that have been spent acting as co-President of the Ole Miss MUN team. Aside from that, I’m pursuing a double major in psychology and public policy leadership, with a minor in French. I hope to change the world one person at a time, but until then, I busy myself with lots of books, lots of coffee shops, and lots of new friends.
Assistant Undersecretary General of Crisis: Bella Harden
Bella Harden is a San Antonio, Texas native who grew up competing in both debate and Model UN. In high school, she acted as the Chair to the Security Council for Model United Nations San Antonio, the largest high-school student run MUN competition in the US, continuing on as Secretary General of the conference her senior year. This position allowed her to interact with people from many countries at varying speaking engagements to support high school MUN—including teaching delegations from across Europe and even Kazakhstan. In college, her focus has been on studying International Relations both present and historically, with a focus in Russian studies. This combination has enabled her to study abroad in Moscow the summer after her freshman year and intern abroad in Brussels as a Mertie Buckman Intern the summer after her sophomore year. As a rising junior, she will spend the upcoming fall semester in Rome, Italy. Bella is looking forward to returning to Rhodes in the spring and acting as the Assistant Undersecretary General of Crisis at Midsouth Model United Nations 38.
