Committee Staff – SOCHUM

Chair: Katlyn Kichko

Katlyn Kichko is currently enrolled in her third year of an Honors History degree with a complementary minor in Political Science. Katlyn’s research focuses on Anglo-Dutch relations within the Seventeenth Century, particularly as it pertains to political policy, trade policy, economics, and King William’s War; her undergraduate thesis will focus on the Glorious Revolution of 1688 as a focal point of integral change, as well as its political aftermath within England itself. This is Katlyn’s third year with HSMUN; she participated as a delegate in her senior year of High School representing Germany in Legal Committee and volunteered last year as both a Diplomatic Aide and Vice Chair of WHO. She has also participated in several conferences in which she engaged within the UNHCR representing Denmark, the Paris Peace Conference of 1917 representing Czechoslovakia, and Security Council representing the United Kingdom. Katlyn’s interests include giving fun historical facts (or impromptu lectures) to anyone, regardless if they asked her for them or not, and engaging in political and historical debate.
