President

Hello! My name is Lauren Solomon (she/her). I will be Graduating from UTC this December with a BS in General Biology. I love all things creative, science and nature. I care deeply about the climate and human rights which has fueled my passion for MUN. I have been a part of the Chattanooga Model UN Community for 10 years. I have been lucky enough to have many roles; delegate, Digital Press Corps. Editor in Chief (DPC EiC), Volunteer Staff, Coordinator and now Board President. I clearly can’t get enough of Model United Nations. I am so thankful to everyone who has helped make this conference a reality!

Hello! My name is Don Kim (he/him), and I am currently living in Nashville, TN. I’ve been involved with Model UN for about 5 years now as a participant in various conferences and more recently as an advisor/coach to high school students in the Model UN community. Not only has my experience been a lot of fun, but also, it has given me insight into so many perspectives that I would not have imagined. Currently, I am a student studying economics and computer science. I love outdoor activities, golfing, or just hanging out!
