My name is Victor-James Verhelst and I’m a sophomore at the International School of Panama. I’m from Belgium but I have had some stops in the United States and France before recently starting a new experience here in Panama. Outside of class I really enjoy sports and I’m on the school’s tennis and volleyball teams but I also enjoy playing basketball and sprinting. I was introduced to Model United Nations in eighth grade in France and have pursued debating ever since. I am super excited about this inaugural session of Panamun for Middle school and by taking part as a chair in the “World Health Organization Committee”. I hope you are to as I believe this new initiative is a great way to form you: younger delegates to become successful later in debating. I look forward to meeting all of you and to do my best to keep an exciting and interactive debate. I hope we will succeed in making your first ever Middle School Panamun a great one. See you soon!
