Ben Wang, Secretary-General                                  

Ben is a junior in Branford College returning for his third year of YMUN Taiwan. He has been involved in Model UN since his freshman year of high school, and is excited to complete his model UN career as the Secretary General of the conference. In YIRA, Ben has fulfilled a number of conference roles in YMUN, SCSY, and YMUN Taiwan. Outside of Model UN, Ben is currently studying and being overwhelmed by biomedical engineering and economics. He can be seen on campus working on a small biotechnology startup called Simplex Sciences, doing photography, and gorging on food.
