Ross Trivisonno is a rising senior at The University of Texas at Austin studying Management, Government, and Plan II Honors, with a minor in History. He first attended this conference as a freshman in high school years ago (HAMUN 39), and soon became addicted to Model UN — many crisis committees and dais gigs later, Ross is still hooked on MUN. As a student on the 40 Acres, Ross serves as an agency officer in UT Student Government, a recurring staffer of Central Texas Model United Nations, and is a member of various foreign affairs/national security and political science organizations. He also enjoys extensive freelance writing, including for a campus-affiliated political publication. Outside of campus, Ross is heavily involved in both local and national politics, having served on numerous campaigns — from state representative to presidential — over the past three election cycles, and worked the 86th Texas Legislature during last year’s regular session. He is currently running for election as a National Delegate to this summer’s convention. Having explored several regions of the globe, including throughout Western Europe and China, and road-tripped across most all of America, Ross is also an avid traveler; he believes that international awareness and open-mindedness to other cultures is a key to success not just in Model UN, but in life. Serving as the 46th HAMUN Secretary-General is a phenomenal honor, and Ross very much looks forward to this upcoming year’s conference.
