Outside of the International Relations Club, Zoë can be found wandering the streets in search of dogs to pet or enjoying as many naps as possible, which unfortunately is not as many as she would like.

In her spare time, you can find her getting (too much) ice cream from Kilwin’s, binging the Office, and endlessly scrolling through Foreign Policy. After an incredible experience at last year’s conference, Suzie is excited to yet again share an enjoyable conference weekend with delegates and staffers alike.
