OFFICER BIOS

What is your name, position, delegation, grade, and the number of years you’ve been in MUN?

Hello delegates! My name is Jordan Spector and I have the privilege to be serving as your Crisis Commissioner this year. I am a Junior at Montgomery High School and this will be third year in MUN.

 

What is the best thing about your committee?

Our committee is truly special because we get to debate a wide range of topics from economics, politics, security, technology, or whatever the delegation chooses to focus on. Additionally, everyone gets individualized attention in the intimate setting of our committee.

 

What advice do you have for new delegates?

Don’t push yourself if you know you can’t do something; however, if you think you can’t do something, do it. Even if you fail, you’ll learn a lot more from failure than from success. Remember that everyone around you at conference is there to lift and encourage you, so soak in every opportunity that comes your way.

 

What is your favorite MUN memory or experience?

I have so many fabulous memories at MUN. One was when I was selected to be a CONA delegate my Freshman year; I was in absolute shock and remember being so confused and elated at the same time. However, this is just an experience that stands out to me, not as my favorite, but simply because I wasn’t expecting it to occur. I honestly don’t have one single memory I can call my favorite.

 

What other activities do you do?

Outside of MUN, I am the President of my class. I am also a pole-vaulter on the Track and Field team and have a huge passion for art. I paint every weekend in Princeton and/or New York and take AP Studio Art in school.

 

List some fun facts/icebreaker kind of information. Some examples are: Your favorite food, a country you would want to visit, tv shows you watch, type of music you listen to, etc.

A fun fact about me is that I love Harry Potter and am a Ravenclaw. I’m also a fan of Stranger Things and the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

 

Anything else you’d like to share?

I can’t wait to meet all of you in January! If you ever have any questions or would just like to talk, don’t be afraid to contact me!
