Suraag is a proud member of the Class of 2020 in the School of Foreign Service studying Science, Technology, and International Affairs with a concentration in Business, Growth, and Development. While he is originally from the suburbs of Boston, MA, he spent four years in high school in the middle of rural Indiana and will aggressively defend the word y'all as the integral second person plural form of addressing someone. Despite what you might think, rural Indiana does have Model UN and Suraag has been competing ever since his junior year of high school. Outside of competing with Georgetown's MUN team, Suraag is in a student-run consulting group on campus and dances competitively with Georgetown's bhangra team. When not running from meetings to meetings, Suraag enjoys exploring D.C. in search of the best smoothie. Last year, Suraag served as the USG for Joint Crisis at NCSC and the USG of Cabinets at NAIMUN and couldn't be more thrilled to be coming back to NCSC this year as the Secretary-General to make NCSC XLVI the best NCSC yet!

Schools Project. Her favored forms of procrastination are dramatic movies and Broadway shows, and she is a shameless coffee and chocolate addict. Avery is ecstatic to be your Executive Director, and can't wait to welcome you to our nation’s capital and NCSC XLVI!

He was born and raised in the greatest city on Earth—Chicago, Illinois—and has been watching the Chicago Cubs for longer than he's been alive. He got involved with Model UN in high school, and after being thrust into a highly-competitive World War II JCC during his first conference, surviving a trial (against the wishes of the Japanese Emperor), and coming out with an honorable mention, he has been addicted to crisis committees ever since. He has continued his obsession with MUN through into college, traveling with Georgetown's team and staffing both NCSC and NAIMUN. Outside of MUN, Jonathon is interested in promoting international relations research as a member of the Walsh Exchange Steering Committee and a staff interviewer for the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs. His own personal research interest, stemming from 10 years of studying Mandarin Chinese and 2 study abroad trips to China, is Sino-American trade and security relations. Because of his constant need to be busier than he should be, Jonathon is also involved with GU Politics and the Caravel newspaper. Jonathon looks forward to using his years of experience with crisis committees to make this NCSC the most engaging and exciting one yet!

Director of Delegate Affairs
Mark Wilcox is a member of the Walsh School of Foreign Service’s Class of 2021 and is 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 (even though neither activity has let him wear his beloved crocs). At Georgetown, Mark loves to travel as much as possible and enjoys staffing NCSC and NAIMUN. Outside of Model UN, he loves to take part in other activities, like tutoring for the After-School Kids program and working on the speaker’s team for the College Democrats. After only one year of college, he has already developed a love-hate relationship with the Arabic language. 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.
