Hey everyone! My name is Gonçalo Lemos and I am currently a junior at the International School of Panama. I am from Portugal but I have lived in multiple countries throughout my life including Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, Chile, and now Panamá. I have been involved in PANAMUN since the ninth grade and this will be my third conference. Apart from debating, some of my other passions include track and field, mountain biking, and hanging out with my friends. This year, I have the honor and privilege of charing the Economics and Social Council at PANAMUN XXVII. I am really looking forward to debating with all of you, hearing your ideas, and most importantly, have fun as a committee. I hope we can all enjoy this fruitful and valuable experience together and learn as much as possible from it. I am sure you are all as excited as I am and I will see you soon!
