Marina Khoury is a senior at The Bishop’s School and this year's co-Secretary General. This is her sixth year participating in MUN. In her time on the team, she has enjoyed learning about international affairs, debating solutions to global issues, and chairing last year's KnightsMUN Prison Reform committee. Alongside MUN, Marina helps lead the Speech and Debate team and several affinity spaces. She has previously interned at De Castro Law Group and the Law Offices of Michael Anthony Hernandez. In her spare time, she dabbles in baking and visual arts. She's looking forward to an excellent KnightsMUN this year!
Sydney Chan is a Co-Secretary General and a senior at The Bishop's School who has been involved in MUN since ninth grade. Throughout her time on the team, she has participated in many conferences across the county and beyond, ranging from TritonMUN in sunny San Diego to CMUNCE in frigid New York City. For KnightsMUN VIII, she chaired a UNHRC Sportswashing committee and is excited to work more logistically across all parts of the conference this year! She loves collaborating with her friends to devise solutions for current global issues, but her favorite part about MUN has to be participating in specialized bodies/crisis committees –– who doesn’t enjoy the thrill of rewriting history? Outside of MUN, Sydney competes with the Speech and Debate Team, is a Co-Editor-in-Chief of two school magazines, and plays field hockey and softball. She adores trying new restaurants, blasting 2Pac and SZA in the car, and watching her beloved Chicago Cubs play. She can’t wait for KnightsMUN IX!

She has attended many conferences, including TritonMUN, T&T MUN, and ClarkMUN, and has helped chair the past two KnightsMUN Joint Crisis Committees (Trojan War and The Troubles). She enjoys MUN as it has greatly helped her with her public speaking and on-the-spot problem-solving while doubling as a great way to stay informed on current issues. Outside of MUN, Ava is heavily involved in visual art and costume design on campus, is an editor of two of Bishop’s student publications (Eye on Visual Arts and the DU), tutors with multiple organizations, and enjoys writing with whatever spare time she has.

Beyond MUN, Dylan is a leader on Speech and Debate, runs Cross Country, competes in History Bowl and Academic League, tries to write novels, and serves as his grade’s Class President. His hobbies include reading, beating his Jonas at MarioKart, blaring 90s Hip-Hop, yelling at the TV while the San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Lakers, or San Francisco 49ers are losing, and watching some of his favorite movies like Superbad and Goodfellas.
Jonas Pfefferman is a senior at the Bishop’s School and has been involved with MUN since 7th grade. Entering his second year on secretariat, he's served as Crisis Director for KnightsMun VIII and a Vice Chair for KnightsMUN VII. Having attended conferences from San Diego's own Triton MUN to CMUNCE at Columbia University in New York City, he's excited to take part in many more conferences and his last Knights conference. His favorite part of MUN is finding interesting alternate solutions to historical events in crisis. Outside of MUN, Jonas is on Speech and Debate, runs Cross country, and serves on his grade's Class Council. He loves anything Star Wars, watching movies like a film critic, and coding—he’s currently working on a political-simulation video game (ask him about when he's finally going to release his Beta).

He's also looking forward to our own KnightsMUN conference alongside attending other school's conferences with the team.
