MHC Delegation to Dubai

Nicole TumaNicole M. Tuma is a junior at Mount Holyoke College majoring in international relations and minoring in complex organizations. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, with a multiracial and national heritage, she brings to the College a great interest in the construction of political, racial, and social identities. At Mount Holyoke she has served as the political action chair for the Association of Pan African Unity, public relations chair for the Economics Club, campus liaison for the Debate Team, chair of the Student Advisory Board for the Center for Global Initiatives, as well as the president of a service sorority in the Pioneer Valley. This past summer she interned with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals as a sales representative. To Dubai she brings intense enthusiasm, sensitivity to cultural literacy, and extensive experience in collegiate models of effective democratic government.

Emily FreemanEmily Freeman is in her third year at Mount Holyoke College. Emily is a critical social thought major focusing on political legitimacy in the Middle East and an economics minor. This is her third year as a member of the Model United Nations team; her first year she ran a crisis for the Afghani Cabinet during MUN’s annual conference, her second year she directed crises for every committee, and this year she is chair of the entire team. She was born in Cairo, Egypt, and has lived in Malaysia, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, and, most recently, Qatar. She has also lived in Florida and Colorado, where she graduated from Fairview High School. Her plans for life after college include continuing her studies of Arab political systems and, hopefully, working on education policy or teaching abroad.

She has participated in Student Government Association (SGA) and the varsity soccer team since she arrived at Mount Holyoke. She has since served as a captain of the soccer team, chair of Student Senate, and, currently, president of the SGA. She has also worked as a mentor/tutor in the chemistry department and was an intern at Pfizer Global Research and Development in Groton, Connecticut, for the past two summers.

She is a computer science and philosophy double major, focusing on logic, theory of computation, and language. She was SGA (Student Government Association) parliamentarian for three years, reshaping the role and eventually leading a committee to re-write the SGA Constitution. She is now the SGA public relations officer. She is also a “swebtech,” or student Web technology consultant, for the Mount Holyoke Library, and in this capacity has learned to design curriculum and teach workshops to small groups (up to 20 students). She loves learning about different systems of student government and how they function.
