The SHUMUN XXI Secretariat and Staff is hard at work making SHUMUN an unforgettable experience for all delegates!
Secretary-General: Caroline Hall
Caroline is a first-year graduate Diplomacy student with focuses on Post-Conflict Development and Eastern Europe. This is her fourth year staffing SHUMUN, and her second year on Senior Secretariat. She was a member of SHUNA, Seton Hall’s competitive Model UN team, for three years and can’t wait to keep working with her best friends on SHUMUN, even though she can’t go to conference with them anymore. Caroline is a proud born-and-bred Floridian (go gators) and enjoys taking up new hobbies with her friends that they inevitably abandon within a month. During her non-school time, you can catch her waiting tables, working on her bullet journal, or trying to create the perfect steamed milk for her coffee. She can’t wait to make SHUMUN XXI a great weekend for all delegates and to see what happens in the committees!
Director-General: Casey Stickel
Casey is a senior double majoring in Diplomacy & International Relations and Modern Languages (focusing on French and Arabic). She is also minoring in Economics and History. Apart from adding on too many majors and minors, Casey has enjoyed staffing SHUMUN since her freshman year, including serving as Under-Secretary-General of Crisis Committees on the secretariat last year. She also has been an active member of SHUNA, Seton Hall’s competitive team, since her freshman year too. She’s excited to be serving as Director-General this year and keeping the website running beautifully. When she’s not spending her time working on something Model UN related (which isn’t often these days–shoutout to MUN01), she enjoys watching movies obsessively, trying to run video games off of her school-provided laptop, and curating absolutely massive Spotify playlists.
Under-Secretary-General of External Relations: Shannon Moran
Shannon is excited to serve as your USG of External Relations. She is a sophomore Diplomacy & International Relations major with specializations in environmental science, women and gender studies, and economics. This will be Shannon’s second year staffing SHUMUN and she is looking forward to seeing this year’s conference come together. Other than her involvement in SHUMUN, she is also an active member of SHUNA as well as a member of the Buccino Leadership Institute’s inaugural Diplomacy Cohort. Through the institute, she assists in running the undergraduate leadership podcast. When she’s not working on all the clubs and groups she’s involved with on campus, she likes running, listening to country music, and drinking lots of coffee.
Under-Secretary-General of General Assembly Committees: Peter Eggerding
Peter is proud to be serving as Under-Secretary-General of General Assembly Committees this year. He is a sophomore and plans to major in International Relations and Philosophy while minoring in Russian and Economics. He has been involved with Model UN since freshman year of high school and Model UN is a big part of why he decided to study International Relations. Alongside MUN, he is interested in Eastern Europe and speaks Polish and is learning Russian at Seton Hall. His favorite movie is The Blues Brothers and he is a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan even though he grew up in the Chicago Suburbs. His favorite superhero is Dr. Strange and his favorite food of all time is Chicago style pizza (although he is willing to settle for New York pizza on occasion).
Under-Secretary-General of Crisis Committees: Adam Faddah
Adam is excited to be this year’s Under-Secretary-General of Crisis Committees for SHUMUN XXI. He is a junior majoring in Diplomacy and International Relations. He has been participating in Model UN since his sophomore year of high school and is also a member of SHUNA, alongside being a part of SHUMUN since his freshman year. He has staffed the previous two SHUMUN conferences as a chair and a crisis director. Adam is a proud New Jersey native and is currently studying Russian. He is a huge Quentin Tarantino fan and also holds triple-citizenship. Outside of school, you can often find him working on his car or being stressed at work.
