Dani is the president for this year's Disarmament Committee. Dani is currently a junior-year student at the American School of Barcelona. He was born in Barcelona, Spain and has lived there ever since. Dani joined MUN in eighth grade, when it was first offered. He believes MUN is an enriching experience since it constantly gives him the opportunity to collaborate and learn from others to create original and ingenious solutions to active and threats to present and future societies. It is also a parallel that provides the ability to further develop social, communicational, critical thinking and research skills as an individual. Dani was fortunate enough to maturate these endowments over an extensive span of seven international conferences (MADMUN, IMUN, BCNMUN, SPIMUN, THIMUN and NHSMUN) including the active participation of the two most recognised and biggest conferences in the world. Having experienced MUN multiple times through both a delegate’s and a admin’s perspective, Dani is excited to lead a committee this BCNMUN 2021 for the first time!
Elisabeth a chair for the Disarmament committee. She was born in Amsterdam but has lived the majority of her life around the area of Barcelona. She is currently a sophomore, attending her fourth year at the American School of Barcelona. Lis joined MUN in 8th grade because of her interest in debate and current events. After attending 4 national and international conferences, she can say that MUN has made her aware of so many aspects of the world and perspectives on issues most prominent in society. MUN has helped her overcome her lack of comfort with public speaking and has taught her to think on her feet. MUN is a chance to socialise with individuals from around the world, learning both about people and cultures. It has brought Lis some of her best memories and it is at MUN that she has made some of her best friends. Lis looks forward to BCNMUN 2021, as it will be her first time attending a conference as a chair. She hopes that everyone has a great time- debating, learning and developing.
Alvaro is a chair for this year's Disarmament Committee. Alvaro is currently a senior studying at the American School of Barcelona. He grew up in Madrid, but has since moved to the UK and Bahrain, until he arrived in Barcelona two years ago. Having an international background has allowed for him to be a fully functioning bilingual and has helped him build his understanding of the world and different cultures. Alvaro is passionate about debate and global events, as he began debate in 7th grade in competitions like World Scholars Cup. He soon became interested in pursuing the MUN style of debate, with his first experience as a delegate being as a freshman. He has since taken part in many MUN conferences. Alvaro enjoys MUN as he believes that it is a great medium to meet new people from around the world, and take upon the responsibilities and roles of UN country representatives. Alvaro hopes that his committee is both fun and interesting, but also entertains an engaging debate for an effective resolution.
Zachary is a chair for this year's BCNMUN 21. He was born in New York City and lived there for eight years before moving to Barcelona in 2014, where he has lived ever since. He participates in many extracurricular activities, including Rotary Club, NESDA (Speech and Debate), basketball, and baseball. He started participating in MUN in 8th grade and immediately fell in love with it. BCNMUN will be Zachary’s 5th conference and his first time chairing. He believes that Model United Nations allows its participants to enrich their critical thinking and public speaking skills while simultaneously becoming more knowledgeable on important current events. Through these skills, he believes that participants in the Model United Nations program receive excellent preparation to become future leaders and active members within the international community. Zachary is excited to be chair; he hopes that he will be able to grow as an MUN participant and inspire a passion for MUN in all delegates through an energetic and productive debate.
