MARIA JOSE BURGOS

Chair

Welcome delegates, 

My name is Majo Burgos. It is with great eagerness to introduce myself as the Chair of the World Health Organization committee in CancunMUN 2024. I am 16 years old and a junior at the International American School of Cancun. In my free time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, and being with my friends and family. I am particularly passionate about writing and learning new things. My goal in the future is to do something to help those around me. Thus, I may study something in the medical field outside of Mexico, likely in New York or Spain. 

This year would be my fourth Model United Nations conference. All of my previous experiences in MUN have been as a delegate, two of them in CancunMUN and my most recent one at RIMUN in Rome, Italy. The World Health Organization focuses on international public health. Its primary objective is to promote health, monitor global health trends, provide technical assistance and support to countries, and coordinate responses to health emergencies. 

From my delegates, I anticipate dedication, confidence, respect, and a willingness to engage in thorough research beyond the background guide. While the background guide provides a foundation, it is essential to dig deeper into the topics and explore diverse perspectives. I am looking forward to working with each of you, and making a dynamic and fun committee.

In case you have any questions or doubts leading up to the conference, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at my email burgos.m@ciac.edu.mx I am looking forward to this amazing conference. Wishing the best of luck, see you soon!

SIENNA INIESTRA

Co-Chair

Dear delegates,

My name is Sienna Iniestra, and I am eager to be your co-chair for the World Health Organization. I am 15 years old and a sophomore at International American School of Cancun. I am interested in studying law abroad and I find that MUN is a way of getting early experience. I am passionate about writing and reading, as well as listening to music and spending quality time with my loved ones.

This would be my fourth MUN conference, and I am thrilled to be able to take on as a co-chair. My first MUN experience was at CancunMUN 2023, followed by GUAMUN in 2024, in which I won an award for Honorable Position Paper in UNESCO. I am thrilled to take on this year's conference with you all in WHO, where we will discuss issues regarding healthcare worldwide.

This year my expectations for all delegates is that you will take on this conference with seriousness. Another expectation I have is that delegates do as much research as possible to have a rich debate that flows. We remind you that our background guides should not be your only source of information. Having extra research on your country and other countries participating will help you in the debate! Despite this being a serious conference I have hopes that you will have fun while also learning. Any doubts you may have please contact me at sienna.iniestra@ciac.edu.mx

Wish you the best of luck and see you soon!
