Paula Hernández

Secretary General
Hey!!! My name is Paula Hernández and I am 16 years old. I have participated in MUN Bilbao 2016 as a delegate, in 2017 as a chair and now I am going to be the Secretary General, it’s incredible how fast time passes! Moreover, I have also taken part in many other conferences as for example, last year in Hagamun (The Hague) or the one day conference at Ayalde in June and now I’m about to go to Porgmun (Prague). I started doing the activity of MUN two years ago and in all that time I have learned a lot about all the problems that nowadays concern us. We really need to make the world a better place to live in for future generations. The future is in our hands!! I really hope that this conference is as good as all the others that Colegio Ayalde has hosted because they have been an authentic success. In fact, I hope we can improve even more and make next year's conference even greater and the most memorable conference. I really look forward to seeing all of you at our conference next year!
Carmen Bilbao

Carmen Bilbao

Vice Secretary General
Hello, my name is Carmen Bilbao and I am going to be the Vice Sec-Gen in the next MUN Bilbao conference on January 2019. My job is basically finding sponsors to fund our conference, checking chair reports and resolutions during the conference, as well as making sure the event runs as smoothly as possible. I'm 16 years old and I've been doing MUN for over a year and a half. During that time I have attended over 6 conferences in three different countries. I will also be attending Royal Russell IMUN in October 2018, hopefully as a chair. My first MUN conference was held by my school and it was one of the most entertaining projects I have ever taken a part on. I really hope this next conference is as good as all the others have been. In fact, I truly believe we can improve and make it even greater! With that said, I am really excited for everything that is coming and I can not wait for next year’s conference!

Nicolas Imaz

President of the General Assembly
Hello! I’m Nicolas Imaz and I am honored to address you as the President of the General Assembly of MUN Bilbao 2019. I’ve participated in MUN as a delegate and a chair and I hope to do a great job as PGA, working alongside Paula, Carmen and the admin team to ensure everything is ready for January. I will be responsible for checking committees and GA are ready for debate, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions before and during the conference. I expect to see people willing to debate, people willing to know about world’s most disturbing problems, and people willing to solve them. MUN Bilbao lasts 4 days, but as Muhammad Ali said: “don’t count the days, make the days count”. See you in January!
Mara Ferrari

Mara Ferrari

Head of Admin
My name is Mara Ferrari, I’m 16 years old and I live in Bilbao. I love practicing sports, specially tennis which I have been playing for 10 years. I’m kind of a drama queen, I have drama classes and enjoy them very much. I’ve never acted in my life in front of a big audience but that doesn’t mean that one day I won’t become a great actress. I have decided to join the admin team because it convenes 2 of the things I like the most. First of all, I get to control with my workmates the work that is done and secondly, I get to take part in MUN. I think this experience can provide me lots of new thing such as meeting new people and learning to work in a group.

Hi! My name is Claudia Gondra and I’m 16 years old. I was part of the admin team in MUN Bilbao 2018 and I’m going to be head of admin with Mara Ferrari and Jon Bilbao in MUN Bilbao 2019. I’m glad of having this opportunity because it gives me the chance of taking part in the planning of the committees and also helps me to improve my English skills by meeting people from all over the world.

Natalia Martinez de Las Rivas

Head of Communications
Hello, my name is Natalia Martinez de las Rivas and I’m going to be one of the Heads of Communications in the next MUN Bilbao on January 2019. I’m sixteen years old and I have been on two MUN conferences, MUN Bilbao January 2018 and in the mini conference of June 2017. I’m also going to Royal Russell MUN conference in October 2018 as a part of the press team. Being Head of Communications entails preparing the magazines of the conference and distributing them on time to each of the participants. Making the magazine also means having to do interviews and be aware of everything that happens during the conference. I hope this conference to be as fantastic as the others, and despite it will be my first time as Head I think I’ll take it well and maybe I will be able to contribute something new to this conference.
