Last evening’s Somaly Mam Foundation event answered the prayers of a rare breed of geek: the Model UN-er cum fashionista. Yes I can confirm they exist as my glued-to-CSPAN self is one of them, and what better way to entice such an odd hybrid than with certified hot nerd host, Seth Myers.
When Lauren asked me to cover this event I essentially jumped out of my seat, “I’m a former Model UN nerd!” I exclaimed via email, “Ha, i did Model UN, too!” she replied. [Ed note: Leah did Model UN too. Is this a trend?] It was then I realized that there must be more geeks like us, and decided to pull some investigative maneuvers at last evening’s soiree to find them.
