Muskan Salgia

Secretary-General

Born and raised in Indore, India, Muskan is loudly and very proudly Wharton Class of 2020 where she plans to concentrate in Finance, Operations and Strategic Management with a minor in Computer Science. Apart from ILMUNC India, Muskan also serves as the Director of Operations for UPMUNC 52, Penn’s collegiate level Model UN conference.

However her prominent distinction is her superb taste in coffee. With the time that she doesn’t spend scouting for new restaurants all over the place, Muskan loves to indulge in adventure tourism, play table tennis and watch reruns of some of her favorite Bollywood movies. Having participated as a delegate back in ILMUNC India 2014, Muskan believes that this opportunity completes a circle of life in itself as she returns to where it all began.
