About the Chair
Tobias Cebulash is a Class of 2020 studying Culture & Politics in the School of Foreign Service, specializing in Art and Propaganda under Interfering Regimes. He has been doing Model UN since his freshman year and has enjoyed his time both traveling to and staffing conferences. In addition to participating in MUN-related activities, Tobias is a U.S. Army cadet with the Hoya Battalion ROTC program and serves as Director of Special Events on the board of Georgetown’s International Relations Club. In his free time, he practices his Russian and does pushups (hopefully he won’t get kicked out of ROTC).
About the Crisis Manager
Eman Rahman is a rising junior in the Georgetown College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in English and Economics. He drinks approximately 5-6 glasses of milk every day and has been competing in Model UN crisis committees since high school, but now prefers staffing crisis committees because he values the dominion of narrative it allows him to have. In addition to staffing NAIMUN, Eman is a portfolio manager for the largest student-run investment fund in the country, an associate editor for Georgetown University’s official news magazine, and has participated (and dominated) in intramural, club, and varsity sports at Georgetown. He does more pushups than his roommate Tobias, and his ultimate dream is that NAIMUN will one day allow him to run that Game of Thrones committee that he’s been campaigning for.
