Hello Everyone!

My name is Mariana Canakis and I’m honored to serve as Deputy Secretary General of High School for PANAMUN XXXII alongside Samah Prakash. I am currently a senior at the International School of Panama making this my 7th year at ISP and my 7th PANAMUN conference. I am originally from Argentina and Venezuela but throughout my life, I have lived in five different countries which has played a significant role in my passion for MUN and international relations. When I’m not debating I spend my time playing tennis, taking pictures, or spending time with my friends and family. 

MUN began for me in 6th grade when I moved to Panama. I was presented with the opportunity to join the MS Diplomacy Club which at the time seemed like a good occasion to argue with people. Seven years later I can confidently say that I was right, I do enjoy arguing with people, but more than that, MUN has become an essential part of my life. Over the last years, I have attended 13 conferences nationally and internationally both as a chair and a delegate. 

Alongside Samah and the entirety of the Secretariat, we are dedicated to working hard during PANAMAUN XXXII. We are extremely proud and excited to have the opportunity to make this experience possible once again at ISP. I can’t wait to meet you all. See you in October!
