Natalia Deutsch

Welcome to PANAMUN XXVII! My name is Natalia Deutsch and I will be one of your chairs this year for the Middle School CCPCJ Committee. I am from Caracas, Venezuela, but have been living here for more than 8 years now. I am a senior at ISP and have been participating in PANAMUN since I am in 9th grade. I am fulfilling my dream of being able to chair a debate and hear about the different perspectives on various global issues. It makes me very happy to be able to be a chair my final year in high school in a space like PANAMUN, which allows students to get out of their comfort zone, grow as public speakers and experience what working in the United Nations would be like. I think PANAMUN is a marvellous opportunity for students to learn about current news, meet new people, explore their interest and even find a new passion. This can be seen in the work and energy delegate bring in to the debate. I can’t wait to hear what all of you will be bringing in to the debate and for an amazing experience we will all enjoy. Come prepared and ready to do your best! Good Luck!
