UNHRC Topics

Aitana Viñuales Carranza is one of the expert chairs in UNHRC. She was born and raised in New York City into a Spanish and Peruvian family, until she moved to Barcelona the summer of 2020. This is her 5th year at ASB since then, and she is currently a student in 10th grade. Aitana first joined MUN in 8th grade, when given the opportunity through a lynx class. After having participated in speech and debate before, she instantly knew she had a profound passion for public speaking, and was eager to try MUN. After a few classes, she knew that MUN was for her, and went on to participate in various conferences throughout 9th grade, including BCNMUN, OAKMUN, BFISMUN, BIMUN, and IMUN. Through MUN, Aitana has been able to further develop her public speaking skills, and has learned to feel confident sharing her ideas in front of a crowd, something she once struggled with. Additionally, MUN has helped her collaborate well with peers and people she’s just met, allowing for new friendships to come from the conferences she’s attended as well. It has also given her the opportunity to expand her knowledge about the world we live in, keeping her up to date with all current events. Overall, throughout her MUN experience, Aitana has grown an immense interest and appreciation for it, and has also grown a lot as a person, and she hopes to do the same for others in BCNMUN 2024.
