United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
The United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is a United Nations program that provides humanitarian relief to mothers and their children in developing nations. With a focus on national resource scarcity, delegates must grapple with pertinent and potential problems affecting children, that arise due to a lack of resources. Two important topics of discussion for this committee will be regulating education in conflict zones and the current sanitation and nutrition crisis in Yemen.
Jenny is a second year from Richmond, Virginia. She hopes to major in politics and Spanish and attend law school after graduating. Other than Model UN, she spends most of her time eating at every restaurant on the Corner, trying a random assortment of fitness class, and debating on the Moot Court team. Jenny is excited for an exciting and creative committee, and can’t wait to meet all the delegates.
