Chloe:
Hi guys! My name is Chloe Bousquet-Chavanne and I'm junior in the College of Arts and Sciences, originally from New York, NY. At Penn, I'm pursuing a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics with a double minor in East Asian Languages and Civilizations, and Gender, Sexuality and Women's studies. I've been participating in Model Congress since my junior year of high school, and have since chaired for Penn MC. Outside of Model Congress, I tutor for the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project and am involved in the Women's Political League. If you have any questions about the conference or Penn life in general, feel free to reach out to me at: cbous@sas.upenn.edu. Look forward to meeting you all at the conference!
