Karen:
Hi! I'm a sophomore from a suburb of Chicago, studying International Relations and Economics in the College. Outside of PennMC, I'm a brother of Alpha Phi Omega (a co-ed community service frat), I lay out and design the Penn Political Review, and I am doing some military technology research with a professor in the Political Science Department. In my free time, I love to explore the dessert places of Philly and watch way too much Netflix!

Benji:
Hey guys and gals, I am a sophomore from Lexington, MA studying political science and political communication at Penn. I have a little experience in Model Congress from high school but was primarily a Public Forum and Extemporaneous debater. I am a strong believer in one of Jefferson's rules for the House: ďa Member should avoid impugning the motives of another Member, the Senate or the President, using offensive language, or uttering words that are otherwise deemed unparliamentary." (in modern parlance, don't be an a**hole) So long as you follow that rule we should have a good time.
