Hello, delegates, my name is Javier Labarta and I am currently a senior at the International School of Panama. My family is originally from Spain but I was born in Mexico City and have since lived in four countries: Mexico, France, United States, and Panama. My PANAMUN experience began three years ago when I was a delegate for UNPBC, and I have loved debating ever since. Some hobbies of mine are playing soccer, chess, going fishing, and stock trading. I am also very interested in the ever-changing world of business. So much that I decided to lead the school's an investment and business club. Before and during the conference you will find me working hard to create a fun learning environment. My goal is to make this experience one in which you will be able to think critically of the world's most pressing issues. I hope that we enjoy doing that together while making lifelong connections and creating unforgettable memories. I am honored to have been selected as your chair for the United Nations Economic and Social Committee during Panamun XXIX. I am super excited to meet, learn, and discuss with all of you in October. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Hi delegates, welcome to PANAMUN XXVII! My name is Gabriela Galindo, I am currently a sophomore at Tree Of Life International School in Costa Rica, and I am honored to be one of the chairs for the Economic and Social Council. I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia and lived there for 8 years, then I moved to Bogota and later to Medellin, and this is my second year in Costa Rica. My experience in MUN started in the 7th grade. It has taught me the value of hard work, the importance of sharing one's opinions and encouraged me to be more confident. Apart from MUN I love acting, skating, dancing and hanging out with friends. I will do my best to guarantee an enjoyable, cooperative and engaging debate for all you delegates, and I look forward to this conference and meeting you all in the committee!
