Zachary Walusek is a senior at UNLV majoring in economics and public policy. While he joined UNLVMUN as a junior in college, Zac first started competing as a freshman in high school and has only grown his passion for MUN since. When he’s not submitting assignments at 11:59 or writing background guides, he enjoys going on hikes, rock climbing, and killing time flying digital planes. A fun fact about Zac is that he fervently insists that spelling his shortened name without the extra consonants (h or k) makes him cool. We debate this heavily, but its best not to ask him as he has a whole monologue prepared on the subject.
