Secretary-General // Mark WIlcox
Mark Wilcox is a member of the Walsh School of Foreign Service’s Class of 2021 and is majoring in Science, Technology, and International Affairs. Originally from Chesterton, Indiana, he is a loyal proponent of all things Midwest. His high school did not have Model UN, so instead he did debate for all four years. As he transitioned to college, he found Model UN to be a close fit to all the things that he loved about debate, so now he loves to travel with the team and staff their conferences. Outside of Model UN, he enjoys taking part in other activities, like tutoring for the After-School Kids program through the Center for Social Justice and being a Resident Assistant in a freshman dorm. Sometimes, he also likes to make radical life decisions like potentially changing majors because of Grey's Anatomy or wearing Crocs despite lots of snow. In order to get a break from many of his self-induced stresses, Mark loves to critically watch movies, spend time with friends, and simply explore new and exciting avenues of life.
