Joshua is a fourth year Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering student. Born and raised in Ottawa, Josh has always had many interests, whether it be math, sciences, politics, economics or history. He has had an interest in geopolitics and international relations since early high school and was able to finally make use of this interest within the United Nations Society.

Grace McClintock-Luft

Grace McClintock-Luft

Vice President, Communications

Grace is a second year Communications and Media Studies student. A long-standing interest in the intersection of media, politics, and international affairs drove her to move from her hometown of Banff, Alberta to Ottawa where she hopes to further study risk and crisis communication. Though Model UN wasn’t something Grace did before university, she’s grown to deeply enjoy everything from the committees to the community and hopes to continue with it throughout her undergraduate career. 

In her spare time, Grace can be found writing, hanging out with her dog Cleo, and subjecting the public to her slightly better than mediocre singing at karaoke nights.
