Hello delegates! My name is Melany Morales, and I am more than thrilled to be the Chair of the Economic and Social Council for this year's PANAMUN XXVII. I am currently a junior at the International School of Panama, and moved to Panama 4 years ago. Originally though, I am from Venezuela. I have participated in debate conferences for two years, and I remember that the committee I was assigned to my first year was ECOSOC, which was overall an exciting experience. My second year, I got the opportunity to participate in UNHCR, and won the best delegate award. Apart from debating, I enjoy playing sports such as volleyball and ballet. I also love reading and travelling to new places. I am sure that with the dedication and excitement of you all, we will undoubtedly have a highly successful conference. I am certain you all acquire great skills which you'll hopefully share during the conference, and I am fully committed to ensuring that everything in this conference runs smoothly. Once again, I can't wait to meet you all, and I hope you learn from this valuable experience. See you soon!
