Hellooo IRC!!! My name is Reema Azar and I am a Foruth Year majoring in Middle Eastern Studies.  The past year I served as your Minister of Finance and am thrilled to be serving you as your Prime Minister this school year.  I have lived in the IRC since my first year and couldn't be happier living here for my last.  I hope you all enjoy all that the IRC has to offer and make just as many sweet memories here as I have!  Please don't hesitate to approach Council with any ideas you have to offer.

I am a second year student at UVa's Engineering School majoring in Computer Science with interests in finance and mathematics.  I am also an adviser in the Asian Student Union's Peer Advising Family network and Culture Chair for Japan Club.  In my spare time I enjoy competing in Dragon Boat competitions along the east coast, playing violin and piano, cooking/baking, volunteering at various locations to promote clean environments and improving self-sufficiency, traveling, and catching Pokemon.  I come from a multicultural background and have enjoyed the international experience my first year at UVa.  I hope to maintain and improve the IRC so please join the community for a unique experience you can find nowhere else.

Minister of Interior

Hi wonderful IRC-ers!  My name is Mia Samantha Finley but everyone knows me as "Maisie"!  I'm a Second Year pre-comm and dance minor but also am still exploring all of the options college has to offer.  Last year I was Co-Chair of the Cooking Coalition and can't wait to get even more involved this year as Minister of the Interior.  I hope y'all enjoy the cozy community we have here and please ask me anything if you have suggestions, ideas, or just feel like cooking up a meal.  Hope to see you around, Wahoowa!

Steffi Muller                                                                        

Minister of External Relations

Hello, and welcome (or welcome back) to the IRC!  You've made the right choice.  My name is Steffi, and I will be your Minister of External Relations.  I am really excited to make my last year the best possible, and being at the IRC is a huge part of it.  I'm from Leesburg, Virginia, but I've traveled to quite a few countries, and spent a semester in Ireland last year.  I'm a biology major and English minor. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, poetry, photography, traveling, doing yoga, getting too emotionally invested in tv shows, and having interesting conversations over a cup of tea.  This past summer, I helped save local wildlife, and I'm applying to veterinary school right now. I'm also involved in Mentoring and International eXchange (MIX), and it's my goal to let all of UVa know how amazing it is to live in the IRC.  Come by Lewis sometime and say hi!
