Sofia Cardenas

Welcome to the 16th annual CancunMun conference. My name is Sofia Cardenas, and this year I will be your chair for the United Nations Women (UN Women) committee. I am 16 years old and a junior at International American School of Cancun. I am very excited for this year's conference. I have attended two CancunMUN conferences, one as a page and one as a delegate. I really enjoy spending time with my friends, watching movies, listening to music and dancing. In the future, I would like to study psychology and keep focusing on my dance career outside of Mexico.

As a chair, I expect the delegates to take the debate seriously. I want my delegates to participate, listen and respect other delegates, to make the debate interesting and to give the best they can. I chose this committee because I really like talking about women's rights. It is very important to always think about the rights that women need. It is also very interesting! I hope that you have an unforgettable experience at CancunMun and that you have fun! If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me personally at

Hello, my name is Anna Lourdes Autiero del Castillo but everyone calls me Annilu.

I am now 17 years old, and I am currently a Junior at the International American School of Cancun, and it is my privilege to be your Co-Chair for the committee UN Women on this 16th-anniversary conference.

This will be my 2nd conference of MUN, and my first one as Chair, in my first conference I was a delegate I was very nervous and didn't know what to do, but at the end, I had a great, fun experience and I learned a lot of things. The things that I like to do is sports, being with my family and friends, watching movies, reading, listening to music, cooking desserts, going to the beach, traveling, learning new languages, cultures and a lot more. In the future I will like to learn new languages and travel, I haven't decided yet what I want to study but some of my options are medicine, nutrition, tourism or gastronomy. I chose this committee because I like to talk a lot about the respect and the promotion of the rights of the women and I think that women should be always treated equally as men; MUN is a conference that will help you in your life, is an experience where you are going to have fun, you will have challenges, but at the end you will learn a lot of things and you will feel great.

The most important things for delegates is to represent their country well, to know information, to be relaxed and not be nervous, to do and give you best, to be respectful with other delegates, I expect them to know well their topics and be prepared for both of them. But I would also expect delegates to have a lot of fun and enjoy the conference! Also, I would like to remind all delegates that this background guide is not your only source of information, I would expect all of you to investigate more and be prepared.
