Ratna Patel (’21) is very excited to be one of the Secretary-Generals for BUCS IX! Ratna is currently concentrating in Neuroscience and plans to pursue a career in medicine. At Brown, Ratna has competed in conferences as part of Brown Model UN’s travel team, served as Director of Outreach for BUCS VIII, and chaired and directed for Brown’s high school conference (BUSUN), for which she is currently the Director of Media. Outside of Model UN, Ratna can be found swinging on the dance floor with the Brown Ballroom Dance Team, teaching neuroscience to high schoolers through the Brown Brain Bee, or finding new shows to enjoy on Netflix. Ratna studied abroad in Thailand for the Fall 2019 semester, and is pictured here admiring the mountain view on a trip to the town of Pai, Thailand.
