Alejandro Menéndez

Alejandro Menéndez is a second year Law student at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He is a passionate munner since 4th ESO, when he  first participated in SEKMUN.

Since he started in MUN, he has put all his effort and interest in representing his country as a delegate (at 7 conferences already) and successfully running his committee as a Chair (Symun will be his 4th Model).

At the moment, he is the Chairing USG in AUMUN, runs Chairing at UAMIMUN (UAM’s MUN society), and will bring all his previous knowledge into this Model.

Rebecca Windsor 

Rebecca Windsor is a first-year Law and Politics student at the University of Manchester. Though she has only just joined Manchester’s MUN society, she has been involved in MUN for four years now, winning 15 awards in both National Peruvian Conferences and the prestigious Harvard MUN and Harvard National MUN conferences. For the past two years, I have also been a member of the Peruvian Debate Society, one of the most competitive university Model UN teams in Latin America.

Although she may have lost count, she believes this will be her eighth conference as a chair but her first ever in Europe! For this reason, she implores all delegates – strive for creative debate and entertaining solutions! Pave the way for resolutions the UN could only dream of! She hopes that all delegates have as much fun as she will.
