CHAIR - UNESCAP
Mark Wilcox is a proud member of the Walsh School of Foreign Service’s Class of 2021. He is originally from Indiana and thus loves everything about the Midwestern United States. His high school did not have Model UN, so instead he did debate for all four years. With the Georgetown team, Mark loves to travel as much as possible and has enjoyed staffing NCSC and NAIMUN in the US. Outside of Model UN, Mark spends his time working with the Center for Social Justice as a coordinator for the After-School Kids program to help tutor local DC youth. On campus, he loves interacting with the first-year students as a Residential Assistant and also meeting new students as an admissions ambassador. In order to get a break from many of his self-induced stresses, Mark loves to very critically watch movies, try new restaurants, and simply explore new and exciting avenues of life. He would consider himself to be funny, fashionable (his favorite shoes are crocs), and friendly. Mark is so excited to meet everyone this summer and help make a great conference!
