Advocating for Women through MUN

At the end of March, I'll be traveling to NYC with BYU's Model United Nations team to represent Russia. Because of my two years of research experience at the WomanStats Project, I was chosen to participate in the Commission on the Status of Women. I'm so excited to put my research to good use in advocating for vulnerable groups of women worldwide!

The trip will cost about $1,750, with the following expenses:

Delegation Fees: $140
Hotel: $600
Airfare: $550
Transportation: $75
Food and other: $400

Competing on BYU's MUN team is the experience of a lifetime. For the past 14 years, BYU has ranked among the top five of 450 collegiate teams worldwide, and I'm working hard to continue that legacy of success.  

I'm so grateful for any and all contributions to fund this incredible opportunity!
