Lara is originally from Westchester, New York, but she loves New York City and hopes to live there one day. Her hobbies include dancing, Andy Samberg, guacamole, and Breaking Bad. Lara has been doing MUN since high school, but it was not until college that she found she enjoyed leading and organizing conferences more than being the delegate herself.
