In a rainy day of August, 1987 a girl named Jenifer de León was born in a beautiful country known as Guatemala City. Since she was a child, she always dreamed to be a teacher and her dream came true in 2006 when she graduated from LSB School as Teacher of Primary Level of English as a Second Language. Additionally, she gets involved in volunteering activities to be a positive social agent. In 2007 when she was 19 years old she decided to study International Relations in San Carlos University that is the only one public university in her country. She wanted to know better the situation in Guatemala, get involved in it and try to make changes. She is interested in social problems and has participated in activities related to human rights, feminism, international trade, environment and others. At the moment she is about to finish her final academic project. She chose genetically modified organisms as a research topic and studies their impact on the international relations of Guatemala. In future she wants to continue studying, maybe in another country if she gets a chance because this can be a great opportunity to get to know another culture. She is a young dreamer who wants to contribute to the development of her country in different ways, and participation in an International Model United Nations Security Council will help her to live her dream. To represent Guatemala in Azerbaijan is an exciting opportunity and upon the completion of an event in Baku Jenifer is eager to share the knowledge and skills gained with her young colleagues.
My name is Leslie Quiroa; I’m a student in the City University of New York (CUNY). I was raised in Guatemala City were I almost finished my International Relations Degree. However, I am planning to graduate with a Associate Degree in Business Administration by fall 2013 at LaGuardia Community College in CUNY. After I’ll be graduated I have plans to enter a transfer to Zicklin School of Business at Baruch or Stern school of New York University to get the International Business Bachelor Degree. Basically who I am and what I want out of my career and life are reflected in my vision, experience, knowledge and values. I’m the kind of person who likes to improve in knowledge and abilities. For that reason my philosophy is not to believe that failure is negative, but it is a way to learn from each mistake and grow as a person. In effect, the opportunities and failures have helped to push me to look forward my career in International Business and Political Science Studies. I’ve been working on social projects since I entered the Rafael Landivar University in Guatemala City (2007). While I was there, I was a member of Student Movement For The Change which helped to create creative ideas to involve students in political interests and to raise the student’s interest in the community environment. At the same time I was a member in AISEC (Association internationale des étudiants en sciences économiques et commerciales) where I developed many of my abilities for leadership. For that reason in 2009 I was chosen to represent the Political Science Faculty which was part of the International Relations Major, where I helped to develop projects for the students to improve their knowledge and abilities in their social surroundings. And now, I’m getting my internship at the Permanent Mission of Guatemala to the United Nations for the General Assembly Third Committee, which is expected to finish on December, 2013. Moreover the continued interest in helping people and developing my skills and knowledge has given me the opportunity to reach for new challenges and to be part of different organizations. These experiences have been helping to strengthen my leadership and interrelations skills.
I'm Aysel Huseynova from Azerbaijan. Currently I am doing Master of Arts degree in Diplomacy and International Affairs at Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy. At the same time, I work at AIESEC- international student-lead organization. My first experience in MUN goes back to 2011, when I was a second year Bachelor student. That was Regional MUN bringing together 3 Caucasian countries. It was an amazing feeling to be a diplomat even for one day and I look forward to seeing other delegates and living the same feeling again. Don't wait for the perfect moment - take the moment and make it perfect. See you in IMUN Baku!
