He started as a delegate in 7th grade and will now be chairing his second GSMUN committee! Aside from Model UN, he participates in Russian Club and Walker Congress as part of his love for languages and political debate. Outside of school, he enjoys playing tennis, learning piano, and listening to all sorts of music. He's a sucker for good food, terrible puns, and Imagine Dragons.
