Events Chair: Orliana Morag
Orliana Morag is a second year honors student at the University of Chicago studying History, Creative Writing, and English Language and Literature.

Though her extracurriculars have been adjusted so as to better prepare her for a literary career, what has carried over from high school is her love for community service and humanitarian work. When not drowning in homework or volunteer-work, Orliana surfaces to read, write, play ukulele, study French and Hebrew, and compile a database of useless trivia in order to achieve her lifetime goal of answering questions faster than Google.
