Hello Delegates! And welcome to PANMUN XXVIII. My name is Amalie Kjeldsen, I am 16 years old, and a Junior at the International School of Panama. My family is originally from Denmark, however, I was born in Holland, and have since lived in Spain and Russia until I moved to Panama four years ago. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, and I am also part of the school's soccer team. This will be my third year in PANAMUN, the last two years I have participated as a delegate; this will be my first time being a chair. I have gained a lot of debate experience over the past two years and even won the Diplomacy Award last year as a delegate in HRC. I look forward to seeing you in the debate and how you will work together to come to a consensus while being respectful and having everyone engaged. This year, I have the privilege of being one of your chairs for the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC). I look forward to starting the debate, and meeting all of you!
