My name is Sandrine Persaud, and I am originally from French Guiana. I am a graduating Spring 2016 with a degree in Political Science and International Studies with a concentration in International Relations. My interests include learning about other cultures and have done so by studying abroad three times and travelling to five out of the seven continents of the world so far. I hope to attend post-grad school in Europe and Asia and hope to continue living my life and career in various parts of the world.

My name is Solanghely Raffo. I am 24 years old. I am doing a double major in International Studies and Political Science with two minors: Women Studies and Public Policy and Affairs.  I am graduating this May 2016. I speak Italian, Spanish, English, and a bit of Portuguese. The reason why I chose these careers is because I will like “to help and serve” the rest. I feel the skills that I possess such dedication, enthusiasm, and leadership can contribute to achieving my desire to bring solutions to a world filled with global conflicts.  I believe that as students we can take the best of others and give the best of us. We all have certain capacities, talents; individual differences, and critical thinking that are very valuable when working as a team together. This creates a student unity that builds bonds between  students to encourage, guide, motivate, and help one another. I hope to have the opportunity to be able to bring my creativity, effort, experience ,and determination to this National Model United Nations.
