Meet the Staff
Secretary General, Simulation Director
Hey delegates! My name is Stella Banino and I’m a senior here at Ursuline. I started Model UN in 7th grade and instantly fell in love, especially with crisis committees: they present an extra challenge and require creativity, adaptability, and just a bit of madness. When I’m not overthinking a position paper or passing a directive to take down a dictatorship, I enjoy running track and cross country, nerding out about history, and reading National Geographic cover to cover. I also love watching Brooklyn-99 and reading everything from classics-based fantasies to sci-fi Cold War dystopias. I hope y’all have an awesome time and learn a lot - good luck delegates!
Undersecretary General, Head Delegate
Hi, delegates! My name is Lorelei Wolf and I am a senior here at Ursuline. I’ve been a member of this Model UN team since freshman year and have loved every minute of it. The interesting topics, engaging debate, and lively crises are an amazing break from reality and gate to a whole new world. Apart from Model UN, I like to enter new worlds through reading and watching movies. When I’m not nerding out about historical figures or talking someone’s ear off about my favorite books and movies, I like hiking with my dog, baking, and hanging out with friends. I hope this conference is as fun for you as it was for me to plan! Good luck, all!
Chief Operations Officer, Finance Director
Hi everyone! My name is Cate Hughes and I am a senior at Ursuline. I started Model UN in 8th grade and have loved every minute of it; from writing position papers last minute to getting crepes for every meal on our overnights. Model UN has done so many things for me, helped with public speaking, making close friends, and getting an in with our fav librarian. I love reading, binge-watching my fav TV shows (like HIMYM or Friends), and hanging out with my friends. I can’t wait for the conference and I hope you all have loads of fun, good luck!
Press Corps Chair, Press Director
Hey everyone! My name is Nive Sujin Kumar and I’m a senior at Ursuline. I’ve been doing MUN since freshman year and I love it — I don’t even mind the position papers that much. Apart from MUN, I also love reading comics and playing with my dog, Parker. I can’t wait to see you all at the conference and hope you all enjoy yourselves!
Ad Hoc NYC Crisis Director
Hello, Delegates! My name is Nicole Lee and I am a junior at Ursuline. I joined MUN in 7th grade, and I’ve loved it ever since. Besides MUN, I’m busy doing track and hurdling, being sarcastic towards my friends, and reading astrology posts (I’m a Taurus!!). I love watching Netflix (Black Mirror & Queer Eye), Hulu (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and YouTube. I am ecstatic about TUSMUNC II this year, and I know you all will enjoy everything we have planned. Last year, you may remember me as a Crisis Director of the Lorax Committee. However, this year I am the Crisis Director of the ADHOC NYC committee, and I have A LOT of surprises and plans to prepare for. I hope I will get to see you all there!

Warm Hearts, and I am a member of my church youth council on the district and
conference level. Some other hobbies that I have are dancing, playing tennis and
just having fun with my friends. I am also a huge fan of Marvel, which, if you came to
TUSMUNC last year you may know, as I was the Chair of the Captain America Civil War

Raganarok Crisis Director
My name is Cecilia, and this year, my junior year at Ursuline, marks the start of my sixth year as a delegate (gosh I’m old). Although I can’t imagine what my life would be like at this point without MUN, I also play cello and Irish dance. I enjoy keeping up with Premier League Football (and won my family’s fantasy Premier League tournament this year), and there is no dog that even holds a candle to my goldendoodle, Holly.
Ragnarok Crisis Analyst
Hi! My name is Nuala Reynolds and I’m a freshman at Ursuline. I’ve been doing MUN since 7th grade and love it, I also am the head of the philosophy club and my main hobby is reading. I hope you enjoy the conference and come back next year!
Burkina Faso Crisis Director
Hi delegates! I’m Maeve, a junior here at Ursuline. Besides my deep interest for the political situation of Burkina Faso in the 1980s onward, I also enjoy listening to Mitski, overanalyzing poems in English class, and making my friends pay for all my meals. I’m looking forward to making TUSMUNC II a great experience for everyone. I hope you all enjoy this year’s conference!
Burkina Faso Crisis Analyst
My name is Ananya Singh and I am a junior at Ursuline. I’ve been doing Model UN since sixth grade and have loved every minute of it. Because of that, I have become an overall more confident and outgoing person, as well as a better speaker and writer. Outside of MUN I love playing tennis, listening to music, watching sports, and spending time with my friends and family.
Hamilton Crisis Director
Hi all, my name is Domenica Voli and I’m a senior at Ursuline. I’ve been involved in MUN since my junior year and I’m so excited for TUSMUNC II. I’m the Crisis Director for the Washington’s Cabinet committee at this year’s conference. I hope to see you all of you there!
Hamilton Crisis Analyst
Hi! I’m Taryn Comizio, Crisis Analyst for the Hamilton Committee. I’m a senior here at Ursuline, and I’m very excited to be a part of TUSMUNC II! I joined MUN because it seemed like a fun way to put myself “out there,” and gave me a chance to combine my loves of history and acting. Outside of MUN, I love performing with theater and choral groups, and in my spare time you can usually find me dissecting fictional plot lines and character arcs, overanalyzing symbolism in books, or critiquing acting in the modern movie industry. My interests change weekly, if not daily, but at the moment I’m engrossed in the infinitesimally wide intersection of superheroes, coming-of-age stories, and horror. I hope you enjoy your committee experience here at TUSMUNC II—I know that our Model UN team has worked very hard to make this conference both fun for everyone and also a valuable learning experience. It’s been a pleasure to work with such an amazing cast of characters, and I’m excited to see it all come together. See you in November!
Ad Hoc NYC Chair
Hi, I am Hannah Parisi and I am a Chair at TUSMUNC II. I am part of the class of 2021. Currently, I am in the eleventh grade. I have been a part of MUN since seventh grade. In that time, I have attended many Model United Nations conferences that have helped me grow more confident in public speaking. I am really excited to be apart of TUSMUNC II. I am honored with the opportunity to work with many talented women to create TUSMUNC II. I cannot wait to see what will happen and have some much fun with all of you attending.
