Roshan Shelley

Educational Associate Director
Roshan is currently a Freshman at Rutgers University majoring in Economics and plans to receive a certificate in P.P.E. (Politics, Philosophy, and Economics). Roshan initially hated Model UN, and instead wanted to use his free time in high school to pursue a rap career. When that didn’t work out-he still doesn’t know why- Roshan joined the MUN team at John P. Stevens High School and has since loved every minute of it. Competitively, Roshan broke his school’s records for the most “Best Delegate” awards won consecutively and won by a single student. He served on the executive board for the Team, was on the Secretariat for the home conference JPSMUN, and started a summer training program for incoming freshman. Roshan traveled with the All-American Delegation to Budapest in the Fall of 2016 and has remained a loyal member of the All-American alumni community since. He is extremely excited to serve as the Educational Material Associate Director this year. Outside of Model UN, Roshan plays Indian folk drums at events in the tri-state area and is a comedic food blogger. At Rutgers, Roshan is a member of the Rutgers University Association of International Relations (RUAIR), and a dancer on the Rutgers University Bhangra team.

She held the position of Crisis Staffer at the Boston University Collegiate conference, BarMUN.

Rose Jacobs

Associate Director
Rose Jacobs is a native of Chicago, Illinois and the Chicagoland MUN scene. She has left her urban metropolis of a home behind to be a first-year student at the dual BA program between Sciences Po and Columbia University, and as a result, currently resides in the charming, champagne-laden town of Reims, France. She was a member of the All-American team for two years, traveling to WEMUN Expo, HMUN India, and NAIMUN twice, and she also served as an Alumni Associate for the Midwest and the Secretary-General of the All-American Primer conference last year. Now, she’ll be working in an ad-hoc position, offering her services when needed because, according to Frank, the French don’t tend to work much. Outside of Model UN (which admittedly takes up most of her spare time), she enjoys sitting in the library and pretending to get work done, while really just using her prime school Wi-Fi to catch up on Netflix.
