Yolanda Gomez Soto
Dear faculty advisors, sponsors, delegates, ladies, and gentlemen:
It is an honor for me, Yolanda Gomez Soto, to introduce you to the sixteenth version of the Bilingüe Model of United Nations, BIMUN. Throughout this model you will be able to meet hundreds of delegates and people from different schools, settings and backgrounds that will allow you to better enjoy this academic journey that you will be embarking on during the upcoming days. It is a great pleasure for me to be your Secretary-General along with my partner Valentina De Narváez and due to this we will be working with a very dedicated team of presidents and staff in order to guide you through this excellent journey.
As a Secretary-General I have the sole purpose of ensuring that your journey through BIMUN XVI will be an unforgettable experience and that is why we are very committed to following the vision of the group of students and teachers that founded this model seventeen years ago. However, I would like to emphasize that this model is all about you. We are working together to prepare a model where you can develop your ideas, state solid arguments and discuss about topics that are often overlooked and not spoken about in regular conversations. This is your chance to excel and make an impact in the minds of those that will be with you during the upcoming days. To conclude, I would like to remind you of our compromise, responsibility and eagerness to make this a model worthy of the great delegates that will be coming. I’m very eager to see what you are capable of.
Yolanda Gomez Soto.
