Hi everyone! My name is Ariana Kemp and I am a junior studying International Relations. This fall, I studied abroad in Morocco and had a wonderful time learning about the country’s history and politics, and of course eating lots of couscous! On campus I sing in an a cappella group and I work at the career services office. I started going to Model UN conferences in high school, and I am so excited that you all have discovered it as well. I look forward to meeting all of you!
