Ekaterina

Hi delegates! My name is Ekaterina Korabelnikova, I am currently a junior at the International School of Panama, and I am honored to be one of the chairs for the Human Rights Council in PANAMUN XXVIII. I was originally born in Tyumen, Russia, and lived there for 6 years, then I moved to Caracas, Venezuela where I lived for 9 years, and this is my second year in Panama. I participated in my first MUN conference in 9th grade, and have fallen in love with it. Thanks to debate I have found my voice and have learned to appreciate our diversity and utilize it in a positive manner. Other than debate, I love playing volleyball and spending time with my friends. This will be my 9th MUN conference and I am extremely excited to meet all of you and chair for one of my favorite committees. I will do my best to ensure that we will all have a fun, engaging, and collaborative debate. Looking forward to meeting and seeing all of you in the debate!

Hello! My name is Abel Resende and I am currently a 10th grader at the International School of Panama. I have studied here at ISP since kindergarten when I first moved to Panama. Since middle school, I have always wanted the opportunity to become a chair. I finally got the honor to be one of the chairs of the Human Rights Council and I am excited to meet all of you and help you guys have a great debate. It might be my first time as a chair but I have lots of experience being a delegate and therefore I know how a chair must act and behave to make the debate flow. I have participated in M.U.N since seventh grade and have gone to multiple conferences. Apart from debating I love to watch and play all types of sports especially soccer and basketball. I also love hearing Latin music and keeping updated with the world’s biggest issues. Being part of the Human Rights Council of Panamun XXVIII is a great responsibility and I can assure you, I will try my best to make this conference the best one yet. Alongside my fellow co-chairs, we will guide you through the conference and help you when needed. I hope to meet and greet all of you real soon. Help me make this committee the best one ever!
