I am a chair of the Roman Senate committee, and I coordinate details of the conference. In the fall, I will be a junior and I look forward to meeting all of you then. Besides my avid love for Model United Nations, some of my favorite things to do are to hang out with my friends, read, participate in sports, play Tagpro, and watch Netflix. In addition, I have written over 200 pieces of poetry and have been published as a result. In the future, I would like to have a career in business or in law. Participating in Model United Nations allows me to nurture my respect for global affairs. Thank you for giving me the opportunity of being your SG. I am honored to be a part of this conference and it is my goal, as well as that of my fellow secretariat staff, to make the second JJMUNC run as smoothly as possible. Please email me at daniel@dgordondesign.com or sg@jjmunc.com with any questions.

Under Secretary Generals:


Ishmam Nur: USG-Finance


Hello delegates! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the second annual John Jay Model United Nations Conference. My name is Ishmam Nur, and I am a rising junior and treasurer of Model UN. I will be serving as the USG of Finance. I will be handling anything financially related to the conference. Along with being the USG of Finance I will also be the chair of the Fortune 500 Committee. To let you know a little about me, I have many different interests and hobbies such as writing, music, weight lifting, basketball, binge watching shows on Netflix and quite literally watching any movie I can get my hands on. Basically, I’m a huge nerd and tend to be passionate about most things I’m interested in. I hope to convey this through this conference as well. My other interests fall along the lines of science, electronics and business as I hope to major engineering or business related field and venture into the tech industry. If you have any other questions about JJMUNC, specifically dealing with finances, feel free to ask me at: ishmamnur@hotmail.com

Ike Radin: USG-Policy

JJMUNC Pic IkeHello, I would first like to welcome you all to JJMUNC II. I will be a chair of the Russian Civil War JCC. I love revolution; it’s always interesting to see the oppressed class take over. My favorite time period is without a doubt the Russian revolution. The Russian revolution is unique, as the leaders behind it are more complex than they seem: many see Lenin as a champion to the people, but many others see him as a brutal killer. Aside from the complexity of Lenin, The Russian Revolution indirectly caused the Space Race, the Ukrainian famine, and the Cold War. I look forward chairing the Russian Reds! To tell you about myself, I am a rising junior at John Jay, MUN is the closest thing I do to a sport. I am the historian of the club. I also love pursuits of the mind, poetry (Sylvia Plath) philosophy (Nietzsche). I look forward to meeting you all!

In addition, I’m the chair of the Russian Revolution JCC and I hope to make this conference a resounding success. I’m the current Treasurer of John Jay Model UN and hope to continue Model UN throughout the remainder of my high school career. Outside MUN, I am a cross country runner, swimmer, and member of the tennis team. I’m a nerd for all types of war-games and I spend my days playing sports, enjoying the outdoors and listening to my favorite bands.
