María Paula is an Economics undergraduate student at Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, Venezuela. She is currently interning in the Planning and Budgeting Department of the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF). Living in Venezuela her whole life, working at a multilateral development organization that aids her region, and spending the last 7 years learning about complex social, economic, and political issues through MUN, have all contributed to awakening her sense of social responsibility and desire to impact the life of families in her city. She is a firm believer that the best results come when hard work, critical thinking and passion are combined. Her free time is best spent listening to music, being around friends, and learning new things!
