Cristina "Cris" Rodriguez is a third-year public relations major with a minor in sociology and a certificate in international communication. Cris joined the UF Model United Nations team during her freshman year after competing in the Florida circuit during high school and the Puerto Rican circuit in middle school. As a member of UFMUN, she’s competed across the country (and even outside of it!) in a mix of crisis, specialized and General Assembly committees. Last year, Cris directed En Mi Corazón: The Young Lords Party, 1969, a crisis committee at GatorMUN XX. She's beyond excited to switch gears and run a GA on a topic she is so passionate about. Outside of MUN, Cris spends her time reading countless fantasy and romance novels or experimenting with recipes in the kitchen. She also spends her time cuddling her cat, Persephone, or trying to keep her plants from dying. Feel free to talk to Cris about books, Puerto Rican politics, F1, K-pop, or why you should consider doing Model UN in college too. She sends her best wishes to you all and is excited to see you all in January! GO GATORS!
