Welcome delegates to PANAMUN XXVIII. My name is Mauricio Reves and I will be your chair in the Commission on Criminal Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ). I’m currently a senior at the International School of Panama and this will be my fourth Model United Nations conference. A few things about me are that I love football and all sports in general. I lived in Peru, Venezuela, and since 2010, in Panama. I know that this PANAMUN conference will be a great learning experience and hope that all delegates are well prepared and actively participating. As your chair, I will work hard to produce an exciting debate and most importantly, for you to have fun. I look forward to meeting all of you at the conference.


Hello, delegates! My name is Raquel Cardenas and I’m currently a junior at the International School of Panama. I was born in Panama and lived here all my life. Debate has always been a passion of mine because it allows people to discuss problems and potentially reach a solution. What I’m most looking forward to in this conference is proactive and equal participation amongst all delegates. Besides debate, I enjoy attending climate strikes and protests, spending time with my friends, and doing cycling and other forms of fitness. I’ve been participating in MUN since 9th grade but this is my first year participating as a chair. I am so happy and honored to be one of your chairs for CCPCJ and I look forward to sharing great experiences with everyone in the committee. Good luck and see you soon!
