Sinead Maguina is Elected
by our OKC Chapter of the
United Nations Association
Over the summer, the board of directors of our Oklahoma City chapter held a planning retreat. We examined the opportunities and challenges facing our OKC chapter of the United Nations Association. We reflected on our mission and the 40+ years of service we have given to the Greater Oklahoma City community.
As provided in our chapter bylaws, the election of officers was on the agenda.
We are pleased to announce the election of our new chapter president: Sinead Maguina.
Sinead is a student at the University of Central Oklahoma. She is pursuing a double major in Criminal Justice and Political Science. She plans to attend the Oklahoma City University School of Law. After that, she hopes to pursue a career as a Special Agent for the FBI.
Born in Huaraz, Peru, Sinead has been an Oklahoma Resident since 2001. She is active in many student groups at UCO — including groups supporting Latina students. She serves on many executive boards on campus.
Sinead is a big advocate for animal rights, and she loves spending time volunteering and exploring OKC.
Reflecting on her role in our OKC chapter of the United Nations Association, Sinead says, “I believe the UNA is important, because it gives a voice to people who were silenced.”
Other officers of our chapter include:
Vice President of Programs … Michelle Rodriguez
Vice President of Membership … Bansari Mehta
Secretary … Luci Perez
Treasurer … Floydette Seal
You’ll have an opportunity to meet Sinead Maguina at our annual UN Day program, which will be held on Saturday, October 15th, at the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. The program will feature a panel discussion on “The Refugee Crisis: One Humanity, Shared Responsibility.” Find more information about the program here …
Before our board of directors adjourned, we offered our heartfelt thanks to our past president, Priya Desai, for her continuing service to the United Nations Association. Thank you, Priya!
