IMG_7450Hi! I’m Sara Taylor – a sophomore at Rhodes from Mobile, Alabama. Having never before participated in MSMUN, and only participating in Model UN for the first time last year, I am immensely looking forward to this year’s conference and meeting all of y’all! In the next year, I plan to declare an International Studies major with a French minor. On campus, I participate in the Rhodes First Book Club, Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature, and am an active member of Alpha Omicron Pi.
