Hi Delegates! I hope you are all doing well. My name is Catalina, I am 17 years old and will be the President of the UN Women Council. I am very excited about this conference and I have enjoyed researching these topics. Since they are such important topics for the world I am very intrigued to hear the solutions that you come up with. Since we are going to be working closely I believe I should tell you a little bit about myself: I am from Chile and I am currently in my last year at Craighouse School. I started MUN in 2019 and since then I have participated in 6 conferences. I have participated as a delegate, a chair, and Secretary-General. As for my hobbies, I am a huge fan of movies and tv shows (if you see me sleep-deprived, this is the reason why). Another one of my passions is artistic figure skating.
I want you to know that I have experienced being new to MUN. I have been terrified of public speaking and I have also felt completely lost in MUN. For this reason, I want to encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to help you and hopefully make this an amazing experience.
Hi! My name is Maria Belen Mora, and I’m a sophomore in high school. Apart from debating, I enjoy playing the guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Also, guilty pleasure, I love playing Wordle and all its variations (p.s. Nerdle for the win!). My MUN journey started in 8th grade in the ECOSOC committee. It was… interesting. I didn’t turn in my position paper and to be honest I didn’t even talk much. Let me put this into perspective. Anxious was an understatement, I was freaking out the day before the conference. On the first day of the conference, I didn’t speak unless my chairs called on me. However, I started getting used to the environment and actually enjoying it. I spoke more the next two days, not enough to get an award, but enough to feel good about myself. This sparked my love for debate. Since then, I’ve attended countless conferences (all as a delegate). This will be my first conference as a student officer, and I hope to make it a great experience for everyone. I’m excited to make this everyone’s best conference yet! I hope this mini introduction helped us bond a little bit. See you in April!
