2022 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Paula Notivoli Cabezas
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
– Oscar Wide
Paula was born in a small and picturesque village in the Aragonese Pyrenees, which she left at the age of 15 to begin a journey that seems to have no end. Even though she skis in her mountains less than she would like to, she is looking forward to the new chapter she has just started in her life, during which Munusal will remain part of it.
Despite being a pessimist and a complainer by nature, you will always find her with a smile on her face and ready to take on the next challenge. When she joined Munusal 2019, she never thought she would enjoy being part of it so much, not to mention becoming president of the Association.
Other than an obvious interest in international relations and politics, Paula loves spending her free time with her friends with a beer in her hand, cooking the last receipt she has found, enjoying a good book with a cup of coffee or watching the sunset. All of these, of course, with music!
She is looking forward to welcoming all participants, MUN lovers, old and new, curious first-timers and seasoned delegates and providing them with a conference where they feel comfortable and at home.
María Lagares Romay
“Don't let people tell you who you are. You tell them.”
— Serena van der Woodsen (Gossip Girl)
María was born in Galicia in the year 2000, she lived in a really small village next to the city until her last year of high school when she decided to spend a year in the US. After her experience in the States, her life plans changed completely and she went from wanting to study arts in her old city to starting Global Studies in Salamanca. Now, after graduating in Global Studies she is studying Law.
María’s first experience with MUNUSAL was during the 2019's edition as a delegate in the Security Council. Shortly after this, she decided to join the Executive Committee.
Cristina Palacios Garrote
TREASURER and PARTNERSHIPS
Think, believe, dream and dare.
Cristina was born in 2000 in the cold and cute little town of Burgos. She has just graduated from Global Studies in Salamanca and has started to pursue a degree in Law. Within her field of education, she is particularly interested in how migration can be managed, education and history.
Cristina got sucked into the MUN world in February 2019, after taking part in her first mini-MUN. She did not give a second thought when applying for MUNUSAL 2019, though her participation was higher in the socials than in the caucus, she would not change the experience.
Cristina is a sweet lover, when she is not tagging her friends in the sweetest Instagram and Twitter giveaways, she is in the kitchen baking delicious desserts. Besides finding her in the kitchen baking, you can easily find her at any party, especially at the most local ones drinking Calimocho, her favourite drink, a very Spanish and simple one: Coca-Cola + Wine.
PABLO HERNÁNDEZ SÁNCHEZ
"The truth may be stretched thin, but it never breaks, and it always surfaces above lies, as oil floats on water."
– Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
Born in Salamanca in 2001, Pablo is now halfway through his joint degree in Law and Translation Studies, still wondering what is going on and wandering forward, nonetheless. Having participated in a couple of Mini-MUNs during his first year in college, he has now decided that there is more to be done behind the scenes.
His objectives regarding participation in the Executive Committee are to help others enjoy the beauties of public speaking and having to defend their arguments in a friendly environment. It is a truly fascinating experience to see how a room full of people can get immersed in a certain topic. On a personal note, it is always useful to participate in the organization of an event such as MUNUSAL.
Sonia carreño sánchez
"As Madonna once said, I'm tough, I'm ambitious and if that makes me a b*tch, that's what I am. Pretty sure she stole that line from Sue Sylvester."
– Sue Sylvester
Sonia was born 15 days after her due date because someone so stubborn, could only be a Taurus. Born and raised in Salamanca, she decided to study Global Studies and now is continuing her academic life with a master's degree in European Studies.
She is a creative and funny girl with a sharp tongue. She loves make up and reading, as those are the only things that completely calm her down. She is a pop culture encyclopedia, no matter if it is national or international.
celia álvaro juanes
"Maybe this place is the same and we are just changing."
– Real Friends
Celia was born in Cantabria, a small region in the north of Spain. Since she was a little girl, she became interested in politics and the problems that were happening around her, which is why she decided to start studying political science at the University of Salamanca. Once at university, she realized that the subjects she enjoyed and was most interested in were those related to International Law, therefore MUNs were a real revelation when she discovered them. How could an activity bring together people from all over the world, having fun and learning?
Celia started participating in MiniMUNs and MUNs in her third year of university, during the pandemic. So, hopefully, this year will be her first-time on-site format. This is also Celia’s first year in the Executive Committee, and she is ready to work hard to make everyone enjoy their experience at MUNUSAL.
