Secretary-General: Sarah S. Anderson

Sarah is a senior at Harvard, concentrating in Government with a secondary concentration in Mind, Brain, and Behavior. Her strong sense of duty as a global citizen, in addition to her substantive interest in International Relations, have motivated her through nine years of Model UN participation. She is especially interested in how differences in cultural identity affect diplomacy and war, a topic inspired by her mixed Singaporean-Chinese and African-American heritage. Last year, she served as HNMUN's Under-Secretary-General for the General Assembly, and has also been involved in staffing HMUN and HNMUN, traveling with Harvard's competitive Model UN team, running recruitment for the International Relations Council, and leading the IRC Board of Strategy and Social Impact. She is extremely excited to run a wonderful conference alongside this year's Secretariat. Please reach out to her at secgen@hnmun.org with any and all questions.

She has been involved in Model United Nations at Harvard as a director at Boston and international conferences and as Under-Secretary-General for the Specialized Agencies at HNMUN 2017. She is excited to welcome delegates from across the world to HNMUN 2018 and to the beautiful Boston Park Plaza. Outside of academics and the world of Model UN, she enjoys running, exploring New York City (especially Brooklyn), and watching terrible movies.

In just the last few years, Erin has become an active member of Harvard's competitive Model UN team and she has served as a committee Director and Crisis Director at HMUN Boston, China, and India. Outside of MUN, she is involved in the Harvard International Relations Council's central team, Harvard's chapter of Habitat for Humanity, and she is a Course Assistant for an introductory Computer Science class. She first found a home at Harvard, though, as an Assistant Director for HNMUN Administration her freshman year, and she is incredibly excited to give back to this amazing conference!

Having served as the Director of the World Conference on Women for HMUN 2017 and a Director of Administration for HNMUN 2017, she feels fortunate for the remarkable impact Model UN has had on her life. Outside of Model UN, she has been involved in public service and women’s organizations on campus. She enjoys reading, writing, spending time with family and friends, and sipping tea at any time of the day. She is incredibly honored to serve as the Under-Secretary-General for the General Assembly and hopes to make HNMUN 2018 a truly meaningful, enriching experience for the delegates.
