Alvaro is a chair in the General Assembly. He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina although his family is originally from Barcelona. He has lived in 6 different places including Argentina, Mexico, New York, Milan, Miami, and now Barcelona. His international background has allowed him to understand the world through various perspectives. Alvaro moved to Barcelona for years ago and has been involved in many extracurricular activities in school such as being part of both the school’s soccer team and creating the school’s first men’s volleyball team. In 9th grade, Alvaro joined the MUN program, and since then he has had the opportunity to participate in international MUN trips such as IMUN in Lisbon, HMUN in Beijing, and SPIMUN in St. Petersburg. He has experienced the roles of both a delegate and admin in these conferences, and is eager for his new role as a chair. Alvaro has been and will continue to be an active supporter of MUN due to the opportunities MUN brings. It's not only a great way to meet new people from around the world, but also a great way to improve one’s public speaking. Lastly, it helps develop skills such as negotiation, communication, and teamwork. Alvaro is looking forward to what he hopes will be a fun yet productive debate!
