Victor Ramirez

Chief of Staff

Victor is a junior  at the University of Delaware, majoring in Physics with an Astronomy Concentration. He is an international student born and raised in Venezuela until he decided to study in the United States, starting at UD in fall 2017. He started his journey in Model UN during his freshman year of high school, when he joined the Venezuelan International Model of United Nations (VIMUN). It was a very important event for his school, since it held the first Model UN conference in Venezuela. During its 20 years of existence it has been one of the best conferences in the country. Victor tries to keep his time balanced between studying and spending free time with his friends, playing video games, swimming for UD's club team, and resting from all the school work. Arriving in the United States and studying at UD has been a very enriching and unique opportunity for him, and he has learned a lot from the people around him, as well as from himself. Victor hopes he will be able to transmit ideas, learnings, or opinions that would be useful to the delegates in the future and expand the delegates' understanding about those from outside the United States with a very different background.
