UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL
It is my honor to welcome you to CancunMUN 2020 as your Chair in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) committee. I am 17 years old and currently a senior at the International American School of Cancún. When I graduate, I would like to travel and volunteer for six months before studying marine biology in Europe. In my free time I enjoy working out, listening to music, painting, and spending time with my friends and family. I also love to travel and studied a year abroad in Italy.
In 9th grade, I participated in MUN as a page, and in 11th as a delegate of Canada in UNEP. I really like the experience that is MUN, hearing the perspectives delegates bring to the issues discussed in the committees, and seeing them work together to find solutions. I expect delegates to be well-learned on the topics and defend their countries’ positions as well as staying active throughout the conference. Remaining professional and taking the conference seriously is very important; however, I would like to remind delegates that MUN is meant to be fun, and it is an educational opportunity to develop skills and make connections.
You may contact me at or any member of Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy, delegates, the best of luck!
My name is Andrés Azcárraga. I am 17 years old and currently a senior at the International American School of Cancun. For this year’s CancunMun 2020, I have the honor to be working as Co-Chair in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) alongside my Chair, Natasha Berrón. I enjoy exercising and watching movies and series after school, and during the weekends, I like spending time with my friends and family. I’m interested in studying cinematography, and would eventually like to become a film director.
This will be my third Model United Nations conference. In fact, in my first ever MUN, I was in the UNHRC Committee. My previous experience inspired me to become a Co-Chair for this year´s conference. I chose UNHRC because I’ve always been passionate about protecting human rights, and I think it is something we should all follow and support.
It is important for all delegates to debate with enthusiasm and with an open mind. As a reminder, delegates should not rely just on the information provided by the background guide. It is strongly suggested to do more research in order to be well prepared.
Feel free to contact me at or any member of the Secretariat at if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing you in November!
Best of luck, Delegates!
