About Your Dais

  • Benjamin (Ben) Belisle will be your Director for the General Assembly Third Committee. Mr. Belisle is a senior in his fourth year at Georgia State. He will graduate in December with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in Global Studies and two certificates of language ability in French and Spanish. This is Ben’s second semester on Georgia State’s Model UN team, and despite being relatively new to model UN, he quickly found a home on the team and likes the challenges that model UN presents. Ben enjoys any kind of adventure and being active, including traveling in the US and abroad, running, biking, hiking, and being outside. He has visited 8 countries outside the US and 35 states and hopes to visit many more soon. He also loves food, whether it be cooking or trying a new restaurant. As director of GA 3rd, Ben is looking forward to a productive committee in which delegates work together to find innovative solutions to the two topics being addressed -- the issue and implications of family separation on the United States-Mexico border, and the detention of, and human rights violations against, Uighur Muslims and other minorities in China. He encourages delegates to research as much as possible before the conference, and come prepared for a busy but productive conference at GSUMUN 2019.

  • Adrian Carrasquillo will be your Assistant Director for the General Assembly Third Committee. Mr. Carrasquillo is a sophomore at Georgia State University studying Political Science with a concentration in International Affairs. He plans to pursue a career in humanitarian aid, traveling throughout the world and helping those who need it most. This is his first semester on GSU’s Model United Nations team and is ecstatic for what he will learn. When he isn’t belting songs in the shower convincing himself that he sounds like Jennifer Hudson, he enjoys binge-watching Love Island (UK) and cooking. He looks forward to seeing young minds tackle pressing humanitarian issues, and expects all delegates to be respectful of each other and to enjoy the conference!

  • Nawal Rashid will be your Assistant Director for the General Assembly Third Committee. Ms. Rashid is currently a Sophomore studying Premed Biology. This is her first year on the Model UN team at GSU. In her free time, Ms. Rashid enjoys reading and comedy.
