Alexandra Doménech is VALMUN 2023's Secretary General. Currently a senior at the American School of Valencia, she began her MUN career in sixth grade, and since then has gone on to participate in a plethora of conferences. Model United Nations has played a vital role in both her personal and professional development, and thus has proved to be a defining aspect of her life. Having served as an admin, delegate, and chair, she is able to understand and sympathize with all aspects of the conference. She is eager to work for a fruitful, enriching and professional conference with the goal of broadening young minds and helping them experience the joys of belonging to the MUN community.
Mar Frechina Margaix is the Deputy Secretary General responsible for Delegate Education and Coordination. She has been attending ASV since nursery and is currently a senior. She joined the MUN program by chance in 6th grade as an admin for VALMUN and had initially planned to continue as such. However, her first experience as a delegate in 7th grade left her wanting more. Since then she has attended a wide variety of conferences as an admin, delegate, and chair, both online and in person. Through these experiences, she broadened her understanding on geopolitics and global issues, visited new places, met people from all over the world, and improved her public speaking and problem-solving skills. That is why she is ecstatic to introduce new delegates to the MUN community along with guiding them to achieve their MUN goals. She is looking forward to the seeing the fresh perspectives and debates that will emerge in VALMUN 2023.
Jorge Blanquer is the Deputy Secretary General responsible for Debate Coordination and Chair preparation. He is currently a year 13 student (senior year in the American system) who has been doing MUN since year 7 (6th grade in the American system) and has participated in a plethora of MUN conferences which include several editions of Nice MUN, VALMUN, BCNMUN and MADMUN. These experiences have enabled him to make many friends and greatly increase his speaking, research and debating abilities. Jorge was born and lives in Valencia, where he attends Cambridge House Community College. His interests in debate, geopolitics and sustainability have led him to enroll in several programs which include The European Youth Parliament, The SDG Youth Summit and, of course, Model United Nations. As Deputy Secretary General he is looking forward to seeing how delegates put forward and debate proposals regarding global issues of vital importance.

Ms. Kiraly also believes it is important for students to cultivate a passion for global citizenship, being aware of the world around them and recognizing the capabilities that they have to develop solutions and enact change.
