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: Sara Taylor
Hello, hello! My name is Sara Taylor and I am thrilled to serve as the Secretary General for the 39th MSMUN! Originally from Mobile, Alabama, I am a senior at Rhodes majoring in International Studies and minoring in Business. On campus, I serve as Vice President of the Society of World Affairs Today, or SoWAT, the chapter president for my sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, and as a Rhodes College Ambassador. I have interned at the Economic Development Administration in Washington, D.C. and most recently at the Refugee Empowerment Program here in Memphis. This is my third and final MSMUN conference, having previously served in committee and as Undersecretary-General and I’m determined to make it the best one yet. I am confident that the staff 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 senior at Rhodes from San Antonio, TX (Go Spurs Go!) majoring in Business and International Studies. This is my eighth year being involved in Model UN, and fourth year with MSMUN. On campus, I am involved in Lecture Board, CSO, and SOWAT.
Undersecretary-General: Meg Corley
Meg Corley is a sophomore at Rhodes from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Here at Rhodes, she is involved with Model United Nations, as well as a slew of other clubs and organizations – Meg hopes to major in International Relations, but is taking advantage of the liberal arts environment offered at Rhodes before she officially declares. She has been involved with Model United Nations and Youth Legislature throughout high school and was a member of the Tennessee Delegation to the Conference on National Affairs (CONA) last summer.
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. Bella is looking forward to returning to Rhodes and acting as the Undersecretary General of Crisis at Midsouth Model United Nations 39.
Assistant Undersecretary General of Crisis: Shreya Visvanathan
