Nidhi Rao Belman
A closet introvert within an extrovert, Nidhi loves indulging in good books and music (regardless of their genre or language), dispensing free advice, and is a stickler for 3 AM conversations, solo dance parties, and reckless online shopping. Rebelman by birth and a feminist by upbringing, mansplaining makes her furious but hey, she accepts apologies in the form of displays of acquired common sense and cupcakes! Although she's currently studying law and hopes to teach it eventually, deep down in all honesty she wishes she could just google puns, bake, eat cheese and watch re-runs of Friends or GoT all day for a living. On a more MUNdane note, Nidhi enjoys the occasional MUN, moot, or debate, and was once an active presence in the circuit has been a part of Harvard MUN and Ivy League MUN Conference, among other such notable events.
Sanjana is currently enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as a senior at Atlanta International School. She began her MUN journey in 7th grade and has since grown to be passionate about all forms of dynamic, intellectual debate. She's thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be a part of the very platform she began this journey on. In her free time, you can find her playing volleyball with her friends or stuck on her computer watching Desi stand-up. As Assistant Director of the Human Rights Council, she hopes to craft the best MUN experience to give you all and looks forward to witnessing engaging debate with incredible delegates!
