Hello Delegates,

My name is Isabella Zavalza, and I am extremely excited to be President of the European Union for the 21st edition of CancunMUN. I am currently 16 years old and a junior of the American School of Cancun. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, hanging out with my friends, and listening to music. Model UN allows me to further develop my current interest in world politics and legal matters to entertain the possibility of studying abroad either in Europe or the United States to major in law. 

I’ve had the opportunity to participate in two CancunMUN conferences. My first experience as a delegate was in ninth grade for WHO, where I won the award for best position paper. I fell in love with the program and decided to apply to a more challenging committee the year after, Security Council, and was awarded an honorable mention for best delegate. The European Union is an entirely new committee this year, and I’m very honored to be a part of its development. Its main purpose is to provide peace and security to the citizens of the states that conform it by managing internal political, social, economic crises. However, it also takes measures to address current conflicts beyond its borders. 

This year, I would love for our delegates to be well-prepared and well-spoken so as to leave a good precedent for this new committee. I look forward to working hard along with you and making this an enjoyable and fun experience for all delegates! A quick reminder to read the background guide provided, but that it is required to have various other sources of information besides it. I hope you delegates go beyond when it comes to research, do your best to bring some additional notes on your country and others participating! I’m confident that all of you will do an amazing job! 

Don’t hesitate in contacting me if you have any doubts or concerns via my email I look forward to meeting you, best of luck!


Isabella Zavalza, President
European Union



Greetings delegates of CancunMUN 2024!

I am Ivan Sánchez, and I have the pleasure to be your European Union Co-President. This committee is a new addition to our conference, which is why I am looking forward to ensuring a great experience for all you delegates. I am a 16 year old junior at the International American School of Cancun. Outside of school I have many hobbies and interests: tennis, piano, reading, and formula one. However, I feel my real passion is politics and international relations, which is what I wish to study in Europe when I finish high school.

This will be my fourth MUN conference, as I have been involved in the past two CancunMUNs, first as a delegate when I won my first award, and then as a chair. I also participated in the AMERIMUNC conference in Washington D.C., where I was in the crisis committee. With these MUN experiences, I am glad to say that I have a deep appreciation for the UN and international politics. Regarding this committee, the purpose of the European Union is to promote peace and the wellbeing of its citizens, and also to address the current crises facing the European continent.

As this is a new committee, I will be working hard to make sure you have the best and most accurate experience that reflects its complex character. If you have any doubts or you need help, I encourage you to reference the background guide or contact me at

However, it should not be your only source. Please research and investigate through other means so you can participate effectively. You, the delegates, are what will make this year’s European Union special, so I wish you all success in this 2024 edition of CancunMUN! 

Ivan Sanchez, Co-President
