Hello to all delegates, sponsors, and guests! My name is Jasper Chen (he/him), I'm a senior at Phillips Exeter, and I'll be one of your secretaries general for PEAMUN XV! I’ve done MUN since 7th grade and I’ve attended many conferences around the world. I’m originally from Hong Kong, although I currently live in NYC. At PEA, I’m also pretty big into our Latin and Greek programs, and I’m a part of our classics, archaeology, and linguistics clubs, among others. We’re really excited for this year’s PEAMUN, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all there!
My name is Nhan and I am a Senior from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam! Having been involved with Model UN for 8 years now, I have been involved in a chair dais three times and have been to over 25 conferences around the world! I am greatly excited to be your Secretary-General. Outside of Model UN, I am involved with The Exonian (Exeter’s newspaper) as an editor, Student Council, and Exeter’s Student Service Association. In my free time, I love to write while traveling across either the world or Vietnam! If you see “Sent from my iPhone,” it means I am writing to you while on the road. Speaking of emails, feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
Hi, my name is Catherine Zehner and I'm a rising senior at Phillips Exeter Academy. I'm from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and I use she/her pronouns. I'm a director general for our Model UN club at Exeter, and I've been doing MUN since 9th grade. Outside of MUN I like to read, listen to music, paint, and play tennis. My favorite musician is Taylor Swift and my favorite book is The Lord of the Flies. I'm also a part of affinity spaces on campus. I co-chaired a joint crisis committee at PEAMUN last year, and although I'm not chairing this year I'm looking forward to all of our committees.
My name is Alex Rosen (he/him/his) and I’m thrilled to be one of your Directors General for PEAMUN XV. A little bit about myself is that I’m a senior from Mexico City and a proud resident of Soule Hall at Exeter. My MUN journey began my freshman year when I attended PEAMUN as Sokka in an Avatar crisis committee. I immediately fell in love with MUN and have since partaken in two more PEAMUN conferences, once as a vice chair for League of Legends and once as a chair for Money Heist. I’m looking forward to sharing my last PEAMUN with all of you and hope that you come out of it loving MUN as much as I do. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you all in the fall!
Hi! My name is Davido Zhang (he/him). I am a junior in Phillips Exeter, coming all the way from Shenzhen, China. I did debate in middle school and switched to MUN in PEA. I’ve been to several college MUN conferences, which is unimportant since I am your Under Secretary-General of Digital instead of a chair. I love coding and my job was to work on this year’s PEAMUN website. On campus, I am a cello player in the orchestra and on the squash team as well, also a foodie - I spam food posts on private accounts. Favorite cuisine? Japanese.
Hello! My name is Grady Larson, and I’m a rising senior at PEA. I’m originally from Hillsborough, CA, but I’ve been at Exeter for the last 3 years. Back home, I live with my parents, two younger sisters, and two dogs. Outside of school, I play golf and am a part of other clubs on campus, like Tutoring for Children. I’ve done MUN since 5th grade and have loved every minute of it. PEAMUN is one of the highlights of my year, and I’m so excited to be apart of the leadership this year!
